Veuve Clicquot Champagne Brut, with its signature yellow label, has earned its reputation for being "best in class." When you're looking to impress a friend, colleague or loved one with a true gem in Champagne, there is simply no better choice than Veuve Yellow Label.
Veuve Clicquot Ponsardin Champagne Brut is named for the matriarch of the brand, Madame Clicquot (1777-1866), one of the first businesswomen of the modern era. When her husband died, Madame Clicquot took over his small Champagne house, a widow ("veuve") at the age of 27. She made important technological innovations (including the invention of riddling) and led the house to world renown. Madame Clicquot is perhaps most famous for sending a secret shipment of her Champagne to Russia in 1814, in defiance of Napoleon's blockade!
Veuve Clicquot Champagne Brut is yellow-gold in color, clean, crisp and dry, with fine, persistent bubbles. It is made in the classic style, blending two-thirds black grapes (Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier) for body, balanced with one-third Chardonnay for elegance. Its complex nose of apple, citrus and caramel is followed by rich flavors of citrus, hazelnut and baked bread. This Champagne is long, crisp, and spicy on the finish.
Enjoy Veuve Clicquot Champagne Brut as the perfect apéritif, or to enhance any meal, from start to finish. It is rich enough to accompany virtually any dish. Cheers!
