95% of the Veuve Clicquot vines are classified as Grand or Premier Crus. This is despite the latter only representing a quarter of the total area of vines in the entire Champagne region. Each plot’s grape variety is determined by assessing its soil, climate and exposure. The Veuve Clicquot vineyard is comprised of 47% Chardonnay grapes, 36% Pinot Noir and 17% Pinot Meunier. The Clicquot vines are mostly situated on gentle sloping hills, allowing the vines to benefit from shallow soil and a maximun exposure to sunlight. Since its foundation, Veuve Clicquot has also established a strong partnership with its winegrowers in Champagne. These providers of grapes ensure the consistent quality of Veuve Clicquot wines.
Grapes from as many as 50 to 60 different Crus are used for the blending of Yellow Label. The predominance of Pinot Noir provides the core structure of Clicquot, while a touch of Meunier rounds out the blend. Chardonnay adds elegance essential to a perfectly balanced wine.
