- Champagne. Lovers and Haters this way please!!
Tattinger or Veuve cliquot for me in that order but tesco premier cru is surprisingly decent, there’s always one of the big supermarkets doing deals. I don’t really drink these days so whenever i do it tends to be a blowout wi mates and a good few bottles – for something different mix 4 parts champagne to 1 part good brandy, add 5ml dissolved cane sugar and a couple of dash’s of angostura bitters – dunno what it’s called but it’s bloody nice.Posted 6 years ago
I had some Heidsieck t’other night as it happens. Was quite nice. I’ll def have a look at the chapeldown site although the ultimate goal is a bottle of Billecart Salmon which isn’t expensive but tricky to get hold of without blowing a bank account on the postage.Posted 6 years agoransosMember
Try this English one, its superb!
Yep, I would much, much rather drink a good English sparkling than an NV champagne. As well as Chapel Down, I recommend Nyetimber and Camel Valley rosé.
I went to a champagne tasting evening a few months ago. Whilst the £250 Krug was my favourite of the evening, some much cheaper wines ran it surprisingly close, including a £15 Cremant.Posted 6 years agogeeMember
It’s one of my favourite weekends away – pick a couple of the villages, wander about tasting and buying from the little producers. Once you’ve got away from the major brands and tried some yummy small producer stuff the mass produced version just tastes horrible. We’ve had great mini-holidays in Cramant, Ay, Hautvilliers, Avize and Chouilly. Base yourself in Épernay and you can’t go wrong.Posted 6 years agosbobMember
You obviously have little to no knowledge of the subject in hand, but I’ll forgive that as you are aware of the divine marriage between champagne and curry. 8)Posted 6 years ago
Also a fan of Veuve, I vaguely remember skulling a magnum (from the bottle, ’cause I is classy) at a BBQ recently.
Or it could have been three years ago, god bless alcohol.edhornbySubscriber
good call ocrider – Cremant de Bourgogne can be really great and good cavas are well worth looking out for too (you don’t get it in the supermarkets tho, frexienet is NOT good cava)
your opinion on prosecco is wrong, there are some crap ones out there but there are quite a few that are much better than some of the ones on your blog
I like champagne – there are some awful cheaper ones tho, and some supposedly expensive ones that are just overpriced. As others have said, go to Epernay and find out the local producers (my champagne tip, Guy Charbaut)Posted 6 years agoneilnevillMember
I rather like the Nicolas Feu….. You know the stuff. Agree about the Etienne Dumont…. I learnt the hard way. On offer in Sainsbo I went for half a crate to get the extra 5% off. That was 2 or 3 Chrimbo ago…. Still got a bottle knocking around under the stairs I think 😥Posted 6 years agotrevron73Member
