Tightly knit, focused by racy acidity and a streak of minerality, this offers subtle notes of white peach, anise, biscuit and kumquat. The refined finish echoes a smoky note. Drink now through 2022.

Features wonderful flavors of green apples and pears; aromas of honeysuckle; an elegant wine.

91 pts. : November 30, 2009

There’s plenty of finesse in this smooth-textured Champagne, whose flavors evoke apricot, peach, vanilla pastry and mineral. Racy, with snappy acidity providing energy and driving the flavors to a long conclusion. Drink now through 2012.

A smoky note of roasted nut is subtly woven with the baked apple, lemon meringue and fennel seed flavors in this vibrant Champagne, with a refined, creamy mousse. Drink now through 2020.

91
91 pts. : Nov/Dec 2004

Golden yellow, with aromas of freshly baked artisanal breads gently dusted with brown sugar; subtle orange peel and white peach are enveloped in a rich texture offset by crisp acidity in a flood of tiny bubbles.

91
91 pts. : November 30, 2011

An elegant Champagne, with a refined, lightly creamy mousse. Subtle toast and mineral notes underscore flavors of Gala apple, kumquat, ground ginger and white pepper, with a mouthwatering finish. Drink now through 2015.

90 pts.: December 1, 2001

Red fruit character comes forward in the aroma and initial flavors, enriching the taste and filling out the smoky complexity. There’s a sweetness to that fruit balanced by a chalkiness, completely Champagne. Yellow Label is refined, super non-vintage Brut.

The popular, always consistent Veuve Clicquot “Yellow Label” is made in a rich, full-bodied style. It has biscuity, fresh citrus aromas and flavors, with good length, excellent depth, and a long, complex finish. it would be excellent with game birds such as pheasant or guinea hen.

90
90 pts. : Nov/Dec 1997

Lemon, spice and a leesy complexity on the nose. Rich, full and creamy in the mouth, with a biscuity nuance. Strong acidity contributes to the impression of dryness. Finishes clean and strong, with strong fruit. A superb non-vintage brut release from this house.

90 pts. : December 1, 2009

As fresh as biting into a crisp green apple, this wine rounds out the firm, limestone-inflected acidity of Champagne with the fullness of its dosage. It’s not sweet, but it has the richness of a meringue, finishing tense and sparkly. For aperitifs.

90
90 pts.: December 1, 2006

A full-bodied Champagne, this has been enriched by reserve wines to add depth and smoky lees intensity to its brisk, youthful elements. It’s a satisfying Brut to serve with poached prawns.

90
90 pts. : November 15, 2008

A nice crisp structure focuses the graphite, honey and citrus flavors. This is rich, but remains smooth and elegant, with a lingering aftertaste of honey and pastry. Drink now.

90 pts.: 12/1/2013

One of the most familiar of Champagnes, the Yellow Label is finely made — a fruity while structured wine. It has both fresh and fragrant fruit as well as richness, a soft, creamy texture and bright acidity. There is no sense in bottle aging here — drink this wine because of its crispness.

90
90 pts.: December 1, 1997

The quality of this non-vintage blend is impressive, from it integrated Champagne scent to its creamy texture that carries aromas and flavors of green apples, white flowers, and fine minerality. It all comes together in the finish, where the opulent, pillowy texture meets the crispness of the mousse and light acidity.

90
90 pts.: December 1, 2007

Pale in color, with a strong influence of red fruit in the aromas, this is blended trio a rich style. The texture is plush, the fruit sweet yet balanced by a robust architecture so it finishes clean. A generous wine for aperitifs or to serve with roast fish.

90
90 pts.: December 1, 2011

There’s a tight, floral raspberry essence at the center of this wine, its fruitiness held by brisk, flinty acidity that keeps the finish mouthwatering. A firm wine for poached salmon.

90
90 pts.: December 1, 2004

Cliquot’s Yellow Label is consistently one of the best non-vintage Bruts from the major houses in Champagne. The current release bristles with fresh apple flavor, with the scent of heirloom apples off the tree. That flavor runs straight through the wine, savory and clean, with a firmness for boudin blanc with roast apples.

90
90 pts. : October 31, 2013

Well-knit and balanced, with vibrant acidity framing hints of blackberry, white cherry, biscuit, honey and candied lemon zest. Offers a lightly smoky finish. Drink now through 2016.

89 pts. : December 1, 2009

Ripe, mature, easy Champagne, maintaining the Clicquot style of bottle maturity, with toast, sweet pastry and a rich, full-in-the-mouth character of white fruits. The finish is relatively soft.

89
89 pts. : April 1, 2001

Pale yellow straw. Bready, richly-fruited aromas show a Pinot Noir influence. Impressively concentrated flavors upfront with a moderately full body and a lingering, toasty finish. As is often the case, this would be significantly toastier (and better) with another six months bottle age.

89
89 pts. :

Aromas of lemon, currant, clove and mint; slightly rustic. Then fresh and frothy, with a strong mousse. Distinctly floral suggestion of rose petal to go with the berry flavors. Rather lacy for a wine from this house; not as weighty as some past releases of this wine. But boasts plenty of extract, and a generous, firm finish.

88
88 pts. : November 30, 2006

Firm, with a fine mousse, this shows bright apple, lemon and floral flavors. Graceful, ending with a chalky sensation around the gums. Good length. Drink now through 2008.

88
88 pts. : November 15, 2004

A medium-bodied, open-textured Champagne, showing citrus, yeast and mineral flavors in clean, fresh style. A bit shy on the finish. Drink now.

88
88 pts. : October 15, 2003

A firm, medium-weight Champagne whose biscuit, citrus and wheat flavors stand up to the crisp, tactile finish. Drink now through 2005.

88
88 pts. : December 1, 2006

Round, ripe and lemony, it’s more like a very good California sparkler than fine Champagne. Tasty, fruity and approachable, but missing the refinement and the texture that elevates the very top Champagnes.

88
88 pts. : October 31, 2001

A bracing Champagne, boasting almond, honey and ginger flavors. Appealing texturally, it firms up on the finish, but sure to be a crowd pleaser. Drink now.

Founded by Francois Clicquot in 1772, Veuve Clicquot reached its first pinnacle of fame with the widow Nicole-Barbe Clicquot, who scouted out some impressive vineyard sites during the 19th century. Jacques Peters, who is now in charge of the estate, crafts one of Champagne’s best nonvintage Bruts by enriching the Yellow Label with up to 40 percent of older wines from the firm’s reserve stock. Nutty scents of yeast develop into chalkier mineral flavors as the wine opens with air. It has a fresh scent of narcissus to balance the more mature tones of its reserve wines. It’s rich enough for food, but also easy to enjoy on its own.

Beautifully refreshing and fruity in character, creamy in texture and with a lingering, toasty finish. Improved since our last tasting.

The NV Brut offers up attractive notes of smoke, tar, rich ripe pears and flowers in a medium to full-bodied style. There is a good measure of persistence, although the wine could use a little more polish on the finish. This is Lot 14009913, disgorged between December, 2007 and January, 2008. Anticipated maturity: 2008–2010.

87
87 pts. : December 31, 1998

A fine example of a dry, sophisticated brut, this is an elegant style of Champagne whose understated apple and butter flavors are well balanced by crisp acidity. Drink now through 2001.

87
87 pts. : Nov/Dec 2002

Bright, pale color. Initially reticent nose opened to reveal lemon, apple, mandarin orange, minerals and fresh herbs. Dry, bright and frothy, but with only moderate concentration and depth of flavor. Seems rather light-bodied for a wine from this house, but still a major improvement over a bottle I tasted last fall. Finishes with notes of apple skin and stony minerality.

87
87 pts. : December 1, 2005

The famous yellow label wine. This bottling contains mostly 2001-vintage base wine, and offers a round mouthfeel balanced by crisp acids and flavors of apple and citrus.

87
87 pts. : December 31, 2000

This firm, dense Champagne starts off with apple and citrus flavors, the nturns nutty on the finish, which lingers nicely. Very well-defined and minerally, too. Drink now through 2002.

87
87 pts. : November 30, 1995

A rich-tasting Brut that’s full in body, offering pear and honey flavors accented by toasty, nutty notes. Texture is smooth and round and provides enough crisp acidity to maintain liveliness.

87
87 pts.: Nov/Dec 2011

Bright yellow-gold. Poached pear and candied citrus fruits on the nose, which shows notes of spun sugar and toffee. Sweet orchard and pit fruit flavors are slightly cloying and loose-knit, with slow-mounting spiciness. Finishes on a warm note, with decent length and a suggestion of candied orange.

87
87 pts. : October 15, 2002

Light and effervescent, with a floral, perfumed character and delicate yet firm structure. Its flavors evoke ginger and cherry. Try as an aperitif. Drink now.

87
87 pts. : December 1, 2004

Creamy and soft in the mouth, yet well balanced, this is an easy-to-down Champagne that would be a good party choice. Toast, anise and citrus notes are joined by riper nectarine and apple flavors.

87
87 pts. : December 1, 1999

This is one of the most heavily marketed Champagnes, bit it delivers. Intriguing aromas of yeast and eggs. Generously carbonated, but the extra gas seems to carry the pear and green-apple flavors more forcefully. Definitely a solid, well-made Champagne.

82 pts. : November 30, 1996

An easy-drinking, uncomplicated Champagne with light fruit flavors and a short finish.

: ,

Has a lovely fragrance of spice and citrus that is faintly toasty. The creamy flavors of spice and citrus have yeasty nuances and a crisp finish.

: December 1, 1994

…light gold, has a complex bouquet of vanilla, spice, tropical fruit and citrus, that is faintly buttery. The luscious, rich, creamy, full flavors, echoing the aromas, are complex, buttery and long on the palate. Consistently, one of the best NV Champagnes available.

: July 1, 2006

Brioche and nuts. Almost spicy fruit — apples with a touch of cloves, dry finish, slightly honeyed, nice length. 1–3 years.

: September 1, 2006

Every year, sommeliers in America’s top restaurants tell us that Clicquot’s Yellow Label is the most popular Champagne. It’s easy to understand why, given the richness of the reserve wines in the blend, which add heft to a fresh bubbly.
