Taste test: Champagne

The best champagne evaluated, from Sainsbury’s, Morrisons, Moet And Chandon, Tattinger and Waitrose

Sainsbury’s Blanc De Blancs Champagne ●●●
This is a light, if slightly forgettable offering from Sainsbury’s, but as a reasonably priced bottle of fizz, it’s decent enough bang for your buck.

Morrisons Champagne Brut ●●
There’s something a tad confusing about the different tastes attacking the palate with this bad boy. A little tart, with a slightly smoky aftertaste, we’re not entirely convinced.

Moet And Chandon Imperial ●●●
There’s a refreshing, floral bouquet to this old school pleaser from the M&C stable. But, you know, more ‘nice’, than memorable mega-bubble.

Champagne Taittnger ●●
Those who like their fizz on the rather dry side may find this nippy little number appealing. Others, us included, found it a little too acidic.

Waitrose Champage Blanc De Noirs ●●●●
This is a decent bottle of bubbles; flavoursome, dry and leaving you wanting just a little bit more.
