Veuve Clicquot Yellow Label Brut NV
"The popularity of this big house classic is undeniable, and the showy brand and style are a huge pleasure statement. The Champagne offers plenty of power and intensity - gently herbtinged aromas, some white flowers, citrus and intense chalkiness. The palate delivers signature richness and easily enjoyed depth, plenty of weight and flavour, brisk and firm tannin finish. Consistent."
"Well-knit and balanced, with vibrant acidity framing hints of blackberry, white cherry, biscuit, honey and candied lemon zest. Offers a lightly smoky finish."
90 Points Wine Spectator
"One of the most familiar of Champagnes, the Yellow Label is finely made—a fruity while structured wine. It has both fresh and fragrant fruit as well as richness, a soft, creamy texture and bright acidity. There is no sense in bottle aging here—drink this wine because of its crispness."

"Light gold. Musky orchard fruits and dried fig on the mineral-accented nose. Fleshy and broad on the palate, offering smoky pear and nectarine flavors and a hint of honey. Finishes on a gently spicy note, with very good cling and a touch of bitter lemon pith. Things have definitely begun to turn around for this bottling, which had been lagging behind the winery's vintage offerings for some time."
