Champagne Armand De Brignac Ace of Spades

Sunday, April 25th, 2010

Vintage: Non Vintage
Type: Champagne
Country: France – Reims

When I got the chance to taste this champagne I was a little skeptically. Any Champagne that attracts a price tag that Armand De Brignac does must be all hype… In fact the wine was excellent. For a Non-Vintage blend it was refreshing and tasted wonderful. Nice crisp finish that I expect from a Brut. I would drink this again, though I doubt I’ll be buying any anytime soon; it’s just too expensive.

Veuve Clicquot Ponsardin Rose Brut

Thursday, February 25th, 2010

Vintage: Non-Vintage
Type: Champagne
Country: France – Reims

Veuve’s entry in the Rose Champagne market is excellent. The bubbles are small and plentiful. The flavours are good – sweet but not too sweet and a dry finish. I can’t help but think that the premium that you pay fore the Veuve name makes this wine not very good value for money. Great champagne, but you pay above the odds for it.
