NV Veuve Clicquot Brut Yellow Label Champagne

Golden with persistent bubbles. A bright, lightly yeasty nose with fruit and a touch of toast in the flavor, which is creamy and even has a bit of anise. Medium-big body holds up well with foods. Lively citric finish, long, with minerality and then toast at the end. This season it also comes in a little yellow fridge case, which keeps a chilled bottle at drinking temperature for a couple hours if you're traveling to a friend's house.

NV Veuve Clicquot Rosé Champagne

Medium salmon-pink, fine mousse. Delightful light yeast, fruit, and toast in aroma which intensifies in the flavor. The finish is moderately long with raspberry and tart blackberry and mineral-citric edges. The fruit becomes more pronounced with food, especially with a great pairing like lobster. This season the rosé is packaged with a pink zippered cover which keeps a chilled bottle cooled to the correct temperature for drinking, for a good two hours. For more info see Becky Sue's blog.

NV Jean Laurent Champagne, Blanc de Noirs Brut

This is a lovely glass of bubbles. When first opened it displayed a lot of lemon flavors, but after just a few minutes it showed far more complexity and depth. There was lightly yeasty well-browned toast, almonds, loads of pears and apples, pineapple and the original lemon coming through late. The finish is 20-30 seconds or more. Disgorgement date July 2008.
