Consistency is key at Veuve, and Yellow Label is their epitome of sameness. 50 different vineyards and 25 to 40% reserve wine (from 5 to 6 vintages) is blended back into the blend of 50 to 55% Pinot Noir, 15 to 20% Pinot Meunier and 28 to 33% Chardonnay. This is always a richer, doughier style, with brioche, dough, red apple and a fine shaking of nutmeg spicing. The cushy palate is plumped with a generous dosage, and stunted by a shorter finish. Easy, approachable and still complex and rich. Consistency is key and perfectly achieved.
