Brut Yellow Label
The classic and most popular Veuve Clicquot product, the Brut Yellow Label is a combination of Pinot Noir, Meunier, and Chardonnay. This golden-yellow champagne has a fruity, toasty aroma with hints of vanilla. Taste-wise, the brand describes this champagne as robustly acid with a slight minerality, and having subtle notes of white peach, anise, kumquat, and biscuit. The finish on every gulp however, ends on a smoky note. Pair this bottle with seafood, pastas, and crackers for an optimal experience.
Other Veuve Clicquot Champagnes
Besides the Brut Yellow Label, the brand has several other champagnes on offer as well. These include the Extra Brut Extra Old, which is a blend of old reserve wines, and the La Grande Dame, a blend of different wines from a specific year (2004/2006). For something sweeter and more fun, there is the Veuve Clicquot Rich, a customisable option that brings out different notes depending on other ingredients you combine it with. Lastly, there Rose and Demi-Sec champagnes, both which have a similar composition to the Yellow Label though in different proportions, but are customised to give them their unique tastes.
