92 points Wine News: "Yellow-gold hue; persistent, fine bubbles. Warm baguette aromas with notes of vanilla and chalk. Expansive peach and apricot flavors laced with crisp, youthful acidity. Lengthy finish is fresh and delicious. (Dec 2008/Jan 2009)"

90 points Wine Spectator: "Well-knit and balanced, with vibrant acidity framing hints of blackberry, white cherry, biscuit, honey and candied lemon zest. Offers a lightly smoky finish. Drink now through 2016. (10/31/13)"

90 points Josh Raynolds (International Wine Cellar): "(roughly 50% pinot noir, 30% chardonnay and 20% pinot meunier): Light gold. Musky orchard fruits and dried fig on the mineral-accented nose. Fleshy and broad on the palate, offering smoky pear and nectarine flavors and a hint of honey. Finishes on a gently spicy note, with very good cling and a touch of bitter lemon pith. Things have definitely begun to turn around for this bottling, which had been lagging behind the winery's vintage offerings for some time. (Dec 2013)"

90 points Wine Enthusiast: "[$50 list] 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. Alcohol 12%. (Dec 2013)"

90 points Wine & Spirits: "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. (Dec 2011)"

17/20 points Michael Edwards (The World of Fine Wine): "A fine example of a deftly blended Non-Vintage cuvée: mature grapes transformed into a pleasing balance of fruitiness and expanding vinosity. Harmony is the name of the game. (Issue #37; 2012)"

'Silver Medal,' Decanter: "(12% alcohol) Straightforward toasty fruit and red apple nose. Structured palate, crisp and mature, with a lemon note and good length. (Oct 2010)"

(*) Peter Liem (ChampagneGuide.net): "As usual, this is based heavily on pinot noir (55 percent), with the remainder composed of 25 percent chardonnay and 20 percent meunier; 40 percent of the blend is reserve wine from vintages back to 2002, along with a small drop of 1993. It's richly textured in the Clicquot style, its flavors dominated by pinot noir, and the intrinsic class of its base vintage is felt in its tense structure and persistent length. It promises to gain more complexity with time: this bottle was disgorged in March of 2012, and would benefit from another few years in the cellar. Last tasted: 11/12."
