Casey @ Travelling Corkscrew

If you’ve tried the $20 Champagne from Aldi, then this is it’s big sister, selling for $25. It’s made from Premier Cru grapes which basically means back when the Champagne classifications were put in place, certain vineyards were labelled Premier or Grand Cru for quality. Today it’s really up to your individual taste buds as to what you like.

It’s a pale sand colour on the eye with lovely little ‘come drink me’ bubbles. On the nose it has notes of fresh pineapple & pears mixed with creamy vanilla custard. While in the mouth it has an ultra smooth mousse (mouthfeel) with refreshing lemon honey acidity, flavours of apples and a creamy persistent finish.

Great match with southern fried chicken and salad 🥂🍗

All opinions are based on my own taste buds. Wine is subjective & always evolving, so make sure you drink what you enjoy! #tcweekdaywine
