Veuve Clicquot Brut Yellow Label

Veuve Clicquot Champagne enjoyed to ring in 2012

We had this delicious champagne–a favorite of Bec’s–to celebrate the start of 2012!  Having slipped away to upstate New York, we were staying at the “Sky & Water House” near Woodstock for the occasion with our friends Angela and George.   It was a nice place and we enjoyed thoroughly the peace and the quiet afforded by the place.

Veuve is amazing under any circumstances, and certainly a great treat to celebrate such a milestone as the coming of the new year.  Our dinner consisted of steak (grilled on our deck!), fresh asparagus, and even sweet potato fries.  All were great but none so much as the champagne and the New Year’s celebration.

The winemaker itself writes as follows: “Clicquot’s signature Brut is loved all over the world for its crisp, full flavors, consistent quality and celebratory yellow label.  This classical dry champagne is a blend of two thirds black grapes (pinot noir and pinot meunier)  for body, balanced with one third chardonnay for elegance.  It has a fine, persistent sparkle and golden champagne color.
