Veuve Clicquot Yellow Label Champagne is the signature champagne of the House. Dominated by Pinot Noir, it offers a perfect balance of structure and finesse. Grapes from as many as 50 to 60 different Crus go to the blending of Yellow Label.
Traditionally, the proportion of each grape variety used is 50 to 55% Pinot Noir, 15 to 20% Meunier and 28 to 33% Chardonnay. These figures vary slightly from year to year according to conditions.
Cellar Master Dominique Demarville has to achieve the consistency that makes Yellow Label so immediately recognizable, so utterly reliable both in terms of quality, colour and bouquet.
He will draw on priceless reserve wines for the blend: from 30 to 45% to ensure the continuity of the House’s style. All wines are kept separately to preserve the unique qualities of their vineyard and/or vintage.
