nextSectionOpaque, almost impenetrable inky-purple. Plum liqueur, cassis, violet, tar, milk chocolate and graphite on the nose. Very big, dense and creamy in the mouth, with solid underlying structure giving shape to the black cherry and dark plum flavors. The tannins are broad and fine on the long, thick finish. This comes across as ripe yet fresh but ultimately chunky and monolithic, as Lambrusco Graspaprossa wines often are. More substance than style, if you will, and that's why many lambrusco lovers opt for this variety rather than the more perfumed but much lighter Lambrusco di Sorbara.

This is Gamay-based Bourgogne from 50-year-old vines. Phillip the Bold couldn't possibly have gotten rid of all Burgundy Gamay in the 14th century.
nextSectionRuby in the glass with a deep purple rim. Red cherry and strawberry/raspberry preserves dominate the nose. The palate is rich with red cherry and bright strawberry fruit. Moderate minerally tannins, red berry spice and vibrant acidity dominate the elegant finish.

Brut Yellow Label 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% Pinot Meunier, 28 to 33% Chardonnay. These figures vary slightly from year to year according to conditions. The Chef de Caves has to achieve the total consistency of taste, which makes Yellow Label so immediately recognizable, so utterly reliable both in terms of quality, color and bouquet. The House will draw on priceless Reserve wines for the blend: from 25 to 35%, sometimes as much as 40% to ensure the continuity of the House style. Each of these older wines? ? It is kept separately to preserve the unique qualities of the vineyard and the vintage.
nextSectionYellow Label looks beautiful: golden-yellow, with a foaming necklace of tiny bubbles.
Nose: initially reminiscent of white fruits and raisins, then of vanilla and later of brioche. Note the fine balance between the fruity aromas coming from the grape varieties and the toasty aromas following the ageing in the bottle.
Palate: The first sip delivers all the freshness and forcefulness so typical of Yellow Label with a symphony of fruit tastes following on. Here is a true member of the powerful Brut family, well structured, admirably vinous. The lingering aromas echo and re-echo, with each fruit or spice note distinct. Veuve Clicquot Yellow Label manages to reconcile two opposing factors, ?forcefulness and finesse, ?and to hold them in perfect balance.
