Taste test: Champagne
- The List
- 13 December 2011
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.
