Brilliant champagne as good as any branded one

5 stars

Brilliant champagne as good as any branded one

Fish Finger Butty!

5 stars

The label says to eat with fish and chips, I didn't have fish and/or chips at hand but after a good root around, I found half a pack of fish fingers at the back of the freezer. I quickly knocked up a fish finger butty and job's a good'un. I usually prefer champagne with a heavier blend of pinot noir & pinot meunier but chardonnay seems to be the prominent grape variety on offer here. Even so, it's great value and aside from fish and chips, it could also be taken with other foods. Trevor, from next door, loved the fish finger butty but much to his annoyance had to contend with prosecco as I only bought 2 bottles of Tesco Premier Cru.

Really rather good!!

5 stars

For the money excellent value. I bought a couple of bottles prior to Christmas after seeing some very favourable reviews in the press. I really liked it, not as good as my favourite Bolly but that is at least double the price.

Very disappointing!

1 stars

It was like drinking raw lemon juice with bubbles. Far too acidic and well over priced. I was really looking forward to drinking this champagne after seeing the apparent rewards it had won. Far too acidic and not nice. Certainly not worthy of any kind of award!

Exceptional Champagne, exceptional price.

5 stars

Excellent Champagne at a marvellous price!

A non representational sample?

1 stars

Tasted tired and slightly of caramel; guess it had been on a shelf under the hot lights. The label was full of bling - two gold rings saying it was the winner of the International wine challenge 2018. Obviously I got a very bad example. When I complained they wanted a sample of the wine brought back?! [There were six of us for dinner] Most cavas taste very much better - what a pity.

Always reliably enjoyable

5 stars

Always reliably enjoyable and great value.

Just Buy It - You Won't Be Disappointed !

5 stars

I had this, having never bought Champagne before on the back of the description (I cant do Tropial flavours & Oaked wine or Sulphides have a negative effect one me). Do check the description out fully in brief - ......."citrus, green apple and brioche with a fine mouse"...... Absolutely Fab-U-Lous Dahling (Craig Revel Horwood) Couldn't Agree More, re purchasing for every occaison. Long may it be available and put it on a special Tesco I'd really like to get some in !

Fish and Chips??

3 stars

Why oh why has it been stated on the rear label that this Champagne is good with Canapés and Fish and Chips.............for heavens sake that cheapens the whole idea of a quality Champagne Who on Gods Earth drinks Champagne with Fish and Chips

Superb sparkler

5 stars

Review from tesco.com

This is a winner! I have purchased before and have never been disappointed.. The balance of yeast and grape is remarkable.and the wine is a very worthy competitor with some of the well established brands, and at a great price.
