Wine tasting notes

Yellow Label looks beautiful: golden yellow, with a foaming necklace of tiny bubbles. Next it is so pleasing to the nose: initially reminiscent of white fruits and raisins, then of vanilla and later of brioche. Note the fine balance between the fruity aromas coming from the grape varieties and the toasty aromas following the ageing in the bottle. The first sip delivers all the freshness and forcefulness so typical of Yellow Label with a symphony of fruit tastes following on. The lingering aromas echo and re-echo,with each fruit or spice note distinct.

Food matching

There is nothing like Champagne for setting a celebratory mood. A glass as an aperitif is always a treat, but it is also a surprisingly versatile food partner. It can take on a range of foods, including all kinds of fish and seafood in most preparations, including smoked and even raw, as in oysters, sushi or sashimi. It can even take the heat when matched with Chinese, Indian and Thai food, though make sure that the chilli doesn't overpower the other spices. Michel Roux suggests the following matches: cheese, poppy or almond straws; salt cod and crab fritters; mini fish balls and salad Monte-Cristo (lobster, egg and potato). And with a Kir Royale - Champagne with a touch of Crème de Cassis - try chilli coconut-fried tiger prawns.
