The yellow labels of the House Veuve Clicquot Ponsardin have become global icons, evoking excellence in champagne. By coincidence, Madame Clicquot named her daughter Clémentine, never suspecting that the labels of her champagne would one day be defined by that shining optimistic hue. The Veuve Clicquot Yellow is a subtle mix of golden yellow and orange. Its exceptional pigments give it unequalled charm and elegance. A symbol of wisdom and eternity, recalling the vivid brushstrokes of Gauguin and Rothko, the Veuve Clicquot Yellow is the supreme luxury, ushering in a breath of life, and a taste of metamorphosis.
