Blend and Origin
Veuve Clicquot Yellow Label Brut
This signature champagne gains its structure from the predominant presence of pinot noir (50-55%), roundness from meunier (15-20%) and elegance from chardonnay (28-33%). The grapes are sourced from 50 to 60 crus, and the blend comprises 25-45% reserve wines that have been aged up to 15 years.
This product can only be purchased by persons over 18 years of age.
More to try
Perfect as an apéritif or throughout a meal
The freshness of this champagne will work beautifully with the simple flavours of pan-fried scallops in a citrus relish.
Complement pan-fried red mullet, or a dish of sautéed white-fleshed fish, with the well-structured Veuve Clicquot Yellow Label.
This blend makes a fitting partner for generous slices of strong, crumbly and slightly sweet Comté cheese.
