Veuve Clicquot | Champagne | Yellow Label NV
Arguably, the most recognizable Champagne brand in the world. The Yellow adorned on their labels – looks orange but is in fact the colour of the great Madame Clicquots’ favourite duck’s yolk. An established and major segment of the Louis Vuitton Moet Hennessy Stable, Monsieur Dominique Demarville, is only the 10th Cellar Master in 240 years at the great house. The non-vintage Clicquot has been a dinner party staple for many a year and brings with it an approachable style that has a dominance of Pinot Noir and Meunier with a large proportion of reserve wines.
750ml | 12.5% alc | 50-55% Pinot Noir, 28-33% Chardonnay and 15-20% Pinot Meunier | Stainless steel tanks | 30-40% Reserve wines | Ageing: 3 years on lees | Dosage: 10g/L
This would be ideal for a summer picnic with cucumber and cream cheese sandwiches, potato salads and cherry pie.
