Veuve Clicquot is pleasing to the nose: initially suggestive of raisins and white fruits, followed by vanilla and brioche. Note the delicate equilibrium between the fruity aromas coming from the grape varieties and the toasty aromas following the maturing in the bottle.
The very first sip delivers all the freshness and forcefulness so typical of Yellow Label with a symphony of fruit tastes following on. Here is an actual member of the powerful Brut family, well structured, admirably vinous. The lingering aromas echo and re-echo, with each fruit or spice, note distinct.
