A vivacious Champagne, this shows flavors of black cherry, toast point, white peach puree and salted almond set on a finely detailed mousse. Creamy and mouthwatering on the spiced finish. Pinot Noir, Pinot Meunier and Chardonnay. Drink now. 58,000 cases imported. (Alison Napjus)
WE9191 pts. - Wine Enthusiast - 12/1/2015
The quality of this nonvintage wine from Piper-Hedsieck is a sign of the increasing quality of the range as a whole. It’s a wine that hovers comfortably between freshness and maturity, between a soft dosage and crisp fresh apples. This bottling is ready to drink.
ST8888 pts. - Stephen Tanzer’s International Wine Cellar - Nov/Dec 2005
Medium straw. Light gold, with a strong mousse. Smoky, rich and floral on the nose, with suggestions of orange peel, pear and jasmine. Nicely concentrated and moderately weighty, with flavors of lemon cream and buttered toast. Quite long, with the butter and lemon notes resonating.
RP8888 pts. - Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate - 31st Dec 2008

Where It's From

Region / Champagne

View more wines from Champagne

Bring on the bubbly! Perhaps no other wine region in the world has the name recognition of Champagne, to the point where people often mistakenly use the word "Champagne" to describe any sparkling wine. Yet only wines produced within the region can legally be called "Champagne," and to this day it produces some of the finest sparkling wines known to earth.

Country / France

View more wines from France

The French did not invent winemaking. They simply perfected it. For centuries, France has been producing wines that inspire poetry, awe, and wonder; wines that blur the lines between nature, craftsmanship, cuisine and art. These are the wines that inspired cultures around the globe to follow in France’s footsteps, planting Cabernet Sauvignon, Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc, Syrah, Grenache, Merlot, Semillon and more.

Yet as often as they are emulated, the magic of their terroirs can never be duplicated. You may taste Cabernet from around the world, but perhaps none as elegant and regal as Bordeaux. You may try Pinot Noir or Chardonnay from various climates, but none with the earth-bound soul and ethereal reach of Burgundy.

A rich, toasty Champagne, backed by vibrant acidity and showing lovely balance. The finely textured mousse carries a range of cherry, candied ginger, toasted brioche, chalk and blood orange granita flavors. Disgorged October 2017. Drink now through 2021. 2,833 cases imported.
WS9292 pts. - Wine & Spirits - December 1, 2018
A blend of equal parts pinot meunier and chardonnay, with 20 percent pinot noir, this plays meunier’s rich and heady orange-blossom and strawberry notes off the crushed limestone severity of Côte des Blancs chardonnay. And yet the two merge harmoniously into a platinum-clear Champagne, hinting at fresh pear skin layered over meatier fruit. It’s a great buy at $38.

JS9393 pts. - JamesSuckling.com - Wednesday, September 5, 2018
A reserve-wine blend that delivers a complex and savory style with a wealth of pastry, brioche and smoothly arranged citrus fruit. Fresh and dry. This is still fruit-focused but super crisp. Blend of 1988, 1996, 2006, 2008, 2009 and 2010. Drink now.
WE9292 pts. - Wine Enthusiast - 12/31/2019
A new approach for this producer, this Champagne is almost dry and has also had six years’ aging before release. The result is a taut, nervy and well-structured wine that is wonderfully crisp. Great acidity and citrus flavors add to the effect. Drink now.
WS9292 pts. - Wine & Spirits - December 1, 2019
Dominique Demarville created this blend from Clicquot’s collection of reserve wines; this first release blends wines from 1988, 1996, 2006, 2008, 2009 and 2010. The older wines give it shadings of toasted wheat and oxidative yeasty autolysis while the freshness of the younger vintages brings briskness to its almond and hazelnut flavors. It’s chalky, naked and clean. (Disgorged 6/17)
SP9191 pts. - Wine Spectator - Web only – 2019
A mouthwatering version, with a delicate bead and a minerally streak of chalk and saline accents underscoring the poached pear, chopped hazelnut and black currant notes. Disgorged June 2017. Drink now through 2022.

SP9191 pts. - Wine Spectator - Nov 30, 2009
Open and airy in texture, this rosé offers graphite, cherry, ginger and mineral flavors. Almost creamy in texture and vinous, with a long, fruit-stained aftertaste. Drink now through 2011.
WE9191 pts. - Wine Enthusiast - 12/9/2005
Rich and smoky, with a powerful blast of dustiness. Nectarine flavors carry the long, fresh palate to a clean, fruit-forward finish. Shows a tiny burnt, rustic character and isn’t overly lively in terms of bead. Good for drinking this year and next.
SP9090 pts. - Wine Spectator - Dec 31, 2006
An elegant style, evoking cherry, rosemary and mineral flavors matched to an assertive structure. Creamy and luxuriant, with an expansive finish. Drink now through 2009.
SP8888 pts. - Wine Spectator - Nov 30, 2008
A fruity version, featuring cherry, berry and a touch of orange peel. Lively and light-bodied, with balance and a crisp finish. Drink now.
WE8888 pts. - Wine Enthusiast - 11/11/2004
Straawberry, toast and dark chocolate scents lead the way. The flavors begin with berries, then get darker and toastier on the midpalate before ending with a refreshing blast of citrus. A very good rosé that should be easy to find.

A well-cut and lacy Champagne in an elegant, aperitif style, with hints of chalk and graphite underscoring the lively Honeycrisp apple, cherry and lemon curd flavors. Offers a sleek, minerally finish. Drink now through 2021.
WS9090 pts. - Wine & Spirits - December 1, 2001
Red fruit character comes forward in the aroma and initial flavors, enriching the taste and filling out the smoky complexity. There’s a sweetness to that fruit balanced by a chalkiness, completely Champagne. Yellow Label is refined, super non-vintage Brut.
WS9090 pts. - Wine & Spirits - December 1, 2006
A full-bodied Champagne, this has been enriched by reserve wines to add depth and smoky lees intensity to its brisk, youthful elements. It’s a satisfying Brut to serve with poached prawns.
WE9090 pts. - Wine Enthusiast - 12/1/2013
One of the most familiar of Champagnes, the Yellow Label is finely made — a fruity while structured wine. It has both fresh and fragrant fruit as well as richness, a soft, creamy texture and bright acidity. There is no sense in bottle aging here — drink this wine because of its crispness.
SP9090 pts. - Wine Spectator - Nov 30, 2022
A firm, fresh version, with the lively bead carrying flavors of white cherry, grilled nut, orange curd and smoke. Creamy finish. Pinot Noir, Pinot Meunier and Chardonnay. Drink now. (Alison Napjus)
WS9090 pts. - Wine & Spirits - December 1, 1997
The quality of this non-vintage blend is impressive, from it integrated Champagne scent to its creamy texture that carries aromas and flavors of green apples, white flowers, and fine minerality. It all comes together in the finish, where the opulent, pillowy texture meets the crispness of the mousse and light acidity.
WS9090 pts. - Wine & Spirits - December 1, 2007
Pale in color, with a strong influence of red fruit in the aromas, this is blended trio a rich style. The texture is plush, the fruit sweet yet balanced by a robust architecture so it finishes clean. A generous wine for aperitifs or to serve with roast fish.
WS9090 pts. - Wine & Spirits - December 1, 2011
There’s a tight, floral raspberry essence at the center of this wine, its fruitiness held by brisk, flinty acidity that keeps the finish mouthwatering. A firm wine for poached salmon.
WS9090 pts. - Wine & Spirits - December 1, 2004
Cliquot’s Yellow Label is consistently one of the best non-vintage Bruts from the major houses in Champagne. The current release bristles with fresh apple flavor, with the scent of heirloom apples off the tree. That flavor runs straight through the wine, savory and clean, with a firmness for boudin blanc with roast apples.
WS8888 pts. - Wine & Spirits - December 1, 2005
Founded by Francois Clicquot in 1772, Veuve Clicquot reached its first pinnacle of fame with the widow Nicole-Barbe Clicquot, who scouted out some impressive vineyard sites during the 19th century. Jacques Peters, who is now in charge of the estate, crafts one of Champagne’s best nonvintage Bruts by enriching the Yellow Label with up to 40 percent of older wines from the firm’s reserve stock. Nutty scents of yeast develop into chalkier mineral flavors as the wine opens with air. It has a fresh scent of narcissus to balance the more mature tones of its reserve wines. It’s rich enough for food, but also easy to enjoy on its own.
RP8787 pts. - Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate - 31st Dec 2008
The NV Brut offers up attractive notes of smoke, tar, rich ripe pears and flowers in a medium to full-bodied style. There is a good measure of persistence, although the wine could use a little more polish on the finish. This is Lot 14009913, disgorged between December, 2007 and January, 2008. Anticipated maturity: 2008–2010.
ST8787 pts. - Stephen Tanzer’s International Wine Cellar - Nov/Dec 2011
Bright yellow-gold. Poached pear and candied citrus fruits on the nose, which shows notes of spun sugar and toffee. Sweet orchard and pit fruit flavors are slightly cloying and loose-knit, with slow-mounting spiciness. Finishes on a warm note, with decent length and a suggestion of candied orange.

RP91+91+ pts. - Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate - 30th Aug 2019
A very creditable contribution to what has become an unfashionable genre is Piper-Heidsieck’s NV Demi-Sec Cuvée Sublime, a lovely wine that wafts from the glass with aromas of honeyed peaches, fresh pastry, nectarine and caramelized citrus. On the palate, it’s medium to full-bodied, with good depth at the core, racy acids and a fine mousse, concluding with a precise finish that avoids any suggestion of cloying sweetness despite its off-dry style. Expect it to sing with additional bottle age. (William Kelley)
WE9191 pts. - Wine Enthusiast - 12/31/2003
A dessert wine with sweet vanilla flavors, wrapped around nutty, oily flavors. Fruit is not the object here; it’s more decadent, with unctuous, sweet and lingering vanilla and Bourbon-barrel accents.
SP8989 pts. - Wine Spectator - Dec 15, 2014
Toasted marshmallow and coconut accents impart rich and smoky character to this finely balanced demi-sec, with flavors of pear tart and lemon parfait. Fine and creamy in texture, showing mouthwatering, citrusy acidity throughout. Drink now through 2019.
