Very good drink it all time it has a great aroma and easily to go down. good for special occasions
From a New Years' Eve celebration to the birthday party of a special person to camping by the river, Clicquot is crisp, decadent, elegant and sophisticated. V Clicquot is always welcomed at my events.
it's my everyday favorite
Mine, Ours, It
Our fave, Special always, great every time. One to call your own. Must have in the rack at all times. Champange may break out at any time.
I can't think of a better champagne I've had in this price range.
Lots of bang for the buck!
When it comes to champagne these days, people seem to be more concerned about "How much $?" or "Who's drinking it ?" Well, here's a bottle that shrugs its nose at all those pretentious champagne drinkers. I have tried them all and I can say that I always feel as if a got more than I expected every time I open a bottle of NV Veuve Clicquot. Nothing else comes close for under $40.00
Best at this Price
This is the best non-vintage French champagne. The flavors are delightful without being overwhelming or sweet. My highest recommendation.
Best Champagne For Price
Introduced to this particular champagne in a restaurant in Charlotte, NC. They ran out of the Moet we had been drinking and recommended Veuve Clicquot, been a favorite ever since.
Best bang for the buck in champagne
Great non-vintage Champagne. Highly recommended.
This is a great choice. For a non-vintage Champagne this is actually a great choice. It has a smooth creamy, crisp, refreshing, fruity finish, with just the right amount of dryness to it.
Consistently Worth the money
It may not be the best way to review a wine, but it is true, every time I have this wine it is well worth the expense. Toast, cream, and very light fruit with just the correct amount of acidity.
bought at riverside for dy 60th bday party.
paid more than tw. v good, nice bubbles, slightly yeasty. very solid special bubbly.
by Jason Wax
Nothing mind-blowing here, but clearly a safe bet for bringing to unknown social functions. This is my go-to wine for dinner parties with somewhat snobby people who enjoy wine but would be confused if I brought a grower champagne or a sparkling lambrusco.
The creamy, buttery flavor exploded in my mouth and went down smooth. A great champagne for under $40.
Tip Top for the buck
a very smooth champagne that exlpoded in the mouth and went down like butter.
Great champagne for party
Not too sweet. Dry and sophisticated.
A fine standard Champagne
Crisp, toasty, delicious - and at a pretty good price. For me, the "old reliable" of Champagne, never disappoints.
Friends of the Widow

Light nose and color,a delightful,pleasant and consistent experience. It would be overpowered by many dishes, but in our estimation is a near perfect aperitif. We prepared dinner sipping the Widow.
The Veuve Clicquot Yellow Label is a charming dinner companion - delightful to be around, uplifting to the spirits, and held it's ground between pasta and flourless chocolate cake ^.~
I can't think of a better champagne I've had in this price range.
NV VEUVE YELLOW LABEL
I tasted most of Veuve Clicq. the yellow label is great, not to sweet but crisp. I will give a (4) star rating with taste of less than $35.00, but for something good that is less than $35, a NV Bollinger, or NV Cattier is much better taste.
excellent quality price ratio
toasty, yeasty, crisp. very difficult to beat in that price range.
Classy bubbly without the classy price
I am from London and this is consistently the top-selling Champagne there; I love its crisp and creamy taste. It is not too bitter or acidic like some of its competitors. The yellow label is so cool as well.
I have been a fan of the "Widow Cliquot" since I first sampled in Paris in 1983. The champagne that most often appeared in my room at the hotels I stayed in in Paris, including the Crillion, was Tattinger NV Brut and an occasional Moet, Brut Imperial which I believe won the Champagne Shootout that year over many more pricey labels. However at a small restaurant on the left bank near St. Germain called Le Fox, they were pouring Veuve and WOW a big difference from Tattinger. It is a bit more floral than Moet or Tat and goes better with food I think. Were cracking a magnum this weekend for a dinner party!!!

Not to repeat what everyone else has already been saying, but this truly is one of the best NV sparklers I've had the pleasure of drinking. It's elegant enough to serve at any special occasion, but still affordable enough to enjoy almost anytime.
This isn't my favorite champagne. But it is close. It can be summed up by simply saying: it is elegant.
by Peter Meyaart
Yes, there are real champagnes that cost less, but if you want to find a Grande Marque that's always consistent, Yellow label is the stuff. More full bodied than not, good richness and a pleasant creamy/doughy character on teh finish.
There isn't a more consistently outstanding producer of non-vintage Champagne anywhere. Year after year, VCP turns out a perfectly balanced, Pinot Noir-dominated sparkling wine that's full-flavored and rich, with toasty bread dough notes, crisp, lemony acidity and a long, lingering finish.
by Big Daddy
Not a bad bottle. It was a gift, so I have no right to complain. There was a bit of cream and dough, with lemon on the finish. I probably wouldn't purchase it myself, but would drink it again.
Never fails to please; solid, though not spectacular.
600,000 cases a year
Poor V.C....as with all things popular, it has sacrificed quality to the economics of demand. Those glossy magazine ads, those radio spots... they have taken a once great wine and thrown it down the well along with Santa Margharita. While ONCE V.C. stood for something, now, it's the Cadillac of the wine world. My money? Pommery, Montadon Classe M...May not be able to find them at your local grocery store, or see them advertised on the back of Magazines, but the truth is in the juice!
over-priced and relatively uninteresting
Veuve Cliquot has once again fashioned a very respectable non-vintage wine. Its strength is its full dosage which translates to its very drinkable palate of relatively rich fruit and obvious full ripe fruit flavors. However, like so many wines catering to the palate of New World drinkers it lacks much character. There is no real verve to this wine, and for the price (anywhere from $30-40 in most retailers) it is hard to argue that it is a particularly exemplary sparkler. On its own merits it exhibits a nice fullness, however, in its price category I can think of dozens of champagnes that are more interesting. For example- Pommery Brut Appenage, anything by Egly-Ouriet (especially the formidable non-dosage), Jacquesson et Fils (both Brut and Brut Rose), Nicholas F., Montaudon, and Chartogne-Taillet (a smaller label imported by Skurnik in New York via Terry Thiese). Many of these are far less expensive and equally as interesting.
