Description

Grapes from as many as 50 to 60 different Crus are used for the blending of Yellow Label. The predominance of Pinot Noir provides the core structure of Clicquot, while a touch of Meunier rounds out the blend. Chardonnay adds the elegance and finesse essential to a perfectly balanced wine.

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 depending on conditions.

The Chef de Caves has to achieve the total consistency of taste, which makes Yellow Label immediately recognizable, utterly reliable both in terms of quality, color, and aroma.

The blend draws on a particularly high percentage of reserve wines originating from several harvests (usually 5 or 6): from 25 to 35%, sometimes as much as 40% to ensure the consistency of the House style. Each of these older wines – perhaps 9 years old – is kept separately to preserve the unique qualities of the vineyard and the vintage.
