Arguably, the most recognizable Champagne brand in the world. The Yellow adorned on their labels – looks orange but is in fact the colour of the great Madame Clicquots’ favourite duck’s yolk. An established and major segment of the Louis Vuitton Moet Hennessy Stable, Monsieur Dominique Demarville, is only the 10th Cellar Master in 240 years at the great house. The non-vintage Clicquot has been a dinner party staple for many a year and brings with it an approachable style that has a dominance of Pinot Noir and Meunier with a large proportion of reserve wines. Look out for the non-vintage Rosé which is identical in production to its NV brother but with the addition of 12% Red wine from some of the best Grand Cru sites; Ambonnay, Bouzy, Verzy & Verzenay. The Rosé has been flying under the radar for too long and deserves your attention.

"It takes Dominique Demarville and his team four months of daily tastings to make Yellow Label, tasting 2000 different wines and selecting 400–500 to make up the final blend.

Their expertise is reflected in a gentle trajectory of refinement over recent years, and the 2012 base represents a compelling Yellow Label. Since stronger vintages are demanded to resource Vintage and La Grande Dame production, levels of reserves are increased to sustain Yellow Label volumes, hence a record of a phenomenal 55% reserves in the great 2012 season.

Pinot noir leads out confidently with a fleshy mid-palate and bright finish of red apple, strawberry and mixed spice, over a toasty and bready backdrop of bottle-derived complexity, finishing with touches of dry, dusty phenolic grip and good persistence.

Lively acid line and well-integrated dosage make for a vibrant, well-assembled, accurate and appealing apéritif. Thanks to a strong representation of 42% reserves, the 2011 blend is a standout for its season, upholding balanced poise and a core of fresh fruit integrity."

This would be ideal for a summer picnic with cucumber and cream cheese sandwiches, potato salads and cherry pie.
