VEUVE CLICQUOT YELLOW LABEL

THE CUVÉE: Grapes from as many as 50 to 60 different crus go into the blend 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 recognisable, so utterly reliable in terms of quality, colour and bouquet. He 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 - up to 9 years old - is kept separately to preserve the unique qualities of the vineyard and the vintage.

VEUVE CLICQUOT ROSE

THE CUVÉE: Made using 50 to 60 different crus, the cuvee is based on Brut Yellow Label's traditional blend:

-50 to 55% Pinot Noir

-15 to 20% Pinot Meunier

-28 to 33% Chardonnay

The blend includes a particularly high percentage (25-35%, sometimes 40%) of reserve wines originating from several harvests (usually 5 or 6), which ensures the consistency of the house style. The reserve wines, some of which are 9 years old, are kept separately depending on the origin of the crus and the years in which the wines were produced. This blend is completed with 12% of red wines using red grapes especially raised and selected to give a marvellous balance to this rosé.
