An exclusive presentation of Veuve Clicquot Brut NV Champagne Magnum 1.5 litre presented in a Veuve Clicquot branded wood box. Beautiful golden-yellow colour with a foaming necklace of tiny bubbles. Veuve Clicquot Brut NV Champagne is pleasing to the nose, with aromas reminiscent of white fruits and raisins, followed by vanilla and later brioche. There is a fine balance between the fruity aromas from the grape varieties and the toasty aromas that come from the ageing in the bottle. The first sip delivers the freshness and forcefulness so typical of Yellow Label with a symphony of fruit flavours following on. A true member of the powerful Brut family - well structured and admirably vinous. The lingering aromas echo and re-echo, with each fruit or spice note distinct.
Background: Veuve Clicquot Brut Yellow Label manages to reconcile two opposing factors - forcefulness and finesse - and to hold them in perfect balance. This consistent power to please makes it ideal as an aperitif, and perfect as the Champagne to enjoy with a meal. A perfect example of harmony between delicacy and power. Dominated by Pinot Noir, this wine has a firm structure, round with a touch of Pinot Meunier. Nearly a third of Chardonnay gives it the elegance and finesse needed for perfect balance. A blend of 50 Crus, mainly Grands and Premier Crus. Consistent quality due to 25 to 35% of reserve wines.
