Veuve Clicquot Yellow Label Brut for Champagne Day

Today, October 21, marks the seventh annual Champagne Day, where wine lovers around the globe raise a glass to the quintessential wine of celebration, good cheer and toasts everywhere: Champagne. Champagne Day offers wine lovers an opportunity to enjoy the sparkling wine that only comes from Champagne, France both online and at in-person events throughout the country.

"As Champagne is a wine that evokes enduring memories when enjoyed among family and friends, it is often the drink of choice to mark joyous occasions," said Jennifer Hall, Director of the Champagne Bureau, USA. "Champagne Day is the ideal occasion for all who love this one-of-a-kind wine to pop open a bottle and celebrate life while remembering that Champagne only comes from Champagne, France."

Veuve Clicquot is a Champagne house that was first founded in 1772 by Philippe Clicquot a member of a family of bankers and textile merchants.  Madame Clicquot took over the business when her husband, Philippe’s son died.  She became one of the first businesswomen of modern times.   She created the first vintage Champagne in 1810.  Some of the innovations of Madame Clicquot included the invention of the first riddling table in 1816 and creation of the first “Rose d’assemblage” in 1818.  In 1986 Louis Vuitton acquired Veuve Clicquot and the following year Moet-Hennessy – Louis Vuitton (LVMH) was founded.

The Veuve Clicquot Yellow Label Brut has been the symbol of the Veuve Clicquot house since 1772; it is a perfect balance between power and finesse with a complexity from the major use of Pinot Noir grapes.  Champagne lovers will enjoy the fruity flavors of Peach and Pear along with vanilla and a smooth toastiness.  This wine is great with seafood and duck dishes.
