I do like the odd bottle of Champagne to myself and my lovely hubby decided to buy me a bottle this year as he does most years around Christmas time. I have had this brand a few times and dare I say it I think he buys this one as it is a recognaised brand name and often on offer - there I have said it!!
Currently selling for £15 in Asda (well it was last week so I assume it still is). This is an offer price and it normally costs a few pounds more.
I don't think the bottle looks all that fancy. It looks like the picture on here and it looks alright, but nothing all that sparkly and special. Then again it isn't the most expensive Champagne as normal anyway but not cheap either.
The Cork is quite stiff in the bottle so it took a little pulling and wiggling to get it out. Once poured there was plenty of little bubbles through the Drink. I managed to drink the whole bottle myself in 1 night (in 3 hours I believe) and the drink stayed Fizzy throughout. I have managed to lose my Bottle stopper so just had to tuck some kitchen roll into the neck of the bottle. I have had this drink and not finished it in 1 night and can confirm that although it is perhaps not quite as fizzy the next day it still has a decent amount of fizz to it - could be fizzier with an actual bottle stopper though!
As the title says this is a Brut so a dry taste anyway which most Champagnes are. I don't mind the Dry taste and although this is pretty dry tasting it is crisp as well so to me it goes down easily. A nice sparkling taste as well in my view.
A nice brand of Champagne. I would say I would chose Veuve Clicquot ahead of this as I do prefer the taste of that one, but that one is a good bit more expensive and never really on offer so this does just fine as a cheaper brand name with a tasty taste.
This year for Christmas lunch we decided to treat ourselves to a couple of bottles of Champagne as Asda had Piper Heidsieck Champagne on offer for half its normal £29.99 so it was working out at £15 a bottle. As the wine we were originally buying was already £10 a bottle we decided it was worth putting a little bit of extra to it and getting the Champagne instead.
I have never been too keen on Champagne even though I want to like it I just always think it is too bitter and dry for my tastes. This Champagne was no exception and in fact I felt like it was even drier than other Champagnes that I had tried. I have to admit to not having very sophisticated tastes when it comes to wines but how people can really enjoy this is beyond me.
I love the bubbles of Champagne and I do enjoy the feeling of luxury that it gives but the taste just isn't all that nice to me. This is a Brut Champagne which means it is dry so I knew it was going to be before I drunk it. I got around the bitterness by adding some fresh orange juice to mine which really did make it more palatable.
To be completely fair to this Champagne it was only me who didn't like it everyone else who had a glass all really enjoyed it and said it was delicious. I did notice that this had loads of bubbles and stayed sparkly for ages after being opened and the cork came out of it easily and had a lovely popping wound to it which did get the festive spirit going.
For lovers of Champagne I am sure that this would appeal to them as it was really dry and crisp so although this didn't appeal to my own particular tastes other people who like their wine to be dry and crisp should enjoy it. I also think this was an absolute steal at only £15 a bottle. The offer is still running so if you like your Champagne and want a bargain you should get yourself down to Asda and get stocked up on a few.
