Tasting notes: Veuve Clicquot

Tasting notes

Veuve Clicquot, Yellow Label Brut Champagne

$110 bottle*

As spring explodes in the gardens and parks of Seattle, so this classic French Champagne will excite your taste buds and bring new life to your seafood and other dishes this season. This legendary house of bubbly blends 30 percent to 45 percent reserve wines and grapes from as many 60 different vineyards to create this spectacular sparkling wine every year. Pinot Noir anchors the blend and provides the classic Veuve Clicquot structure, while Chardonnay adds elegance and finesse. A minimum of three years of aging delivers the silkiness for which Veuve Clicquot has been cherished for almost 250 years.
