The Champagne Veuve Clicquot Yellow Label is a reflection of the style of the house. The dominance of Pinot Black provides the typical structure of house wines Reims, while a touch of Pinot Meunier complements the flare. The Chardonnay adds the elegance and finesse needed for perfect balance of a wine from a blend of about 50 to 60 different wines.
The traditional structure of Brut Carte Jaune is composed of 50 to 55% Pinot Black, 15 to 20% Pinot Meunier and 28 to 33% Chardonnay.
The assembly includes an unusually high proportion of reserve wines from several harvests (5-6 on average): 25 to 35%, sometimes up to 40% to ensure the sustainability of the Veuve Clicquot style. These reserve wines, including older ones up to nine years, are held individually, respecting the origin of the crus and years.
