Veuve Clicquot Brut Carte Jaune "Yellow Label" (in Ice Jacket)
This "special offer" champagne sits inside an Ice Jacket—a sleek, ultra-contemporary designed champagne cooler made from an isothermic, state-of-the-art textile featuring Clicquot's signature yellow color and a customizable label. The Ice Jacket hugs the bottle's curves to keep an already-chilled Brut Carte Jaune at the ideal temperature. The strength of this golden-yellow wine is immediately pleasing to the nose while its complexity explodes on the palate. The initial notes of fruit are followed by more discreet aromas of brioche and vanilla when the wine is allowed to age in the bottle.
50-55% Pinot Noir, 28-33% Chardonnay, 15-20% Pinot Meunier. Maison Veuve Clicquot Ponsardi was founded in 1772 by Philippe Clicquot in Reims, France. He chose the anchor, the Christian symbol for hope and rigor, as the cork brand which was the only distinguishing mark in the era before labels. In 1805, Barbe Nicole Ponsardin (aka Madame Veuve Clicquot) took over the house. And in the 1860s to 1870s, the house entered a new era as it began to systematically label each of its bottles and slowly apply yellow labels to all their products. The house has played an important role in establishing the importance and the advancement of champagne. Today, the anchor and yellow label are the main features that allows consumers to identify Veuve Clicquot Ponsardin bottles. Grapes from 50 to 60 different crus, or growing areas, are used to produce the Veuve Clicquot Brut Carte Jaune, which offers a perfect balance of power and finesse.
