Fully deserving of a picture and review is this tiny glass-and-a-half bottle of Heidsieck’s popular Blue Top that I enjoyed - really enjoyed - last week. Bought a bulk of these over a year ago when a supermarket were clearly trying to get rid of them, and it’s sat in my cellar since (on a shelf, not a rack - it’d fall through...). Hence, this NV has had a bit of time in bottle, and it shows - in all the right ways. Deep golden in colour, it was vivacious, enticing and had a surprisingly long finish. Loved it (loved it all the more at £4!).

Medium lemon with aromas of green apple, pear, lemon, nectarine, and lime blossom with a subtle amount of toast and white pepper. On the palate, slightly unripe and harsh flavors of lemon drop, toast, and fresh herbs like thyme and dried grass. Simple - drink it now

In an airport, I'm totally satisfied. Otherwise I'd kick it out of bed, which is saying a lot for a bubbles hound like me

Good old Heidseick Blue Top. Not complex but reliably crisp and and well made.

Our wedding champagne was a Moutard Rosé. Our first anniversary is this!! Way better than the regular non-rosé Moutard. Great choice!

A decent basic champagne. Probably not at it's best warm, with ice, on a plane, but that's all they had. Distinctly toasty with a harmonious, m.t. base. Given the setting (en route to holiday in South of France) it was great!

Kids in bed: great start to an evening. Fresh, lacks leesy depth
