It's no secret that I love a
lot little bit of bubbly. Over the years I've dipped in and out of all sorts of different types of bubbly; cava, prosecco and lots and lots of different brands of champagne. In fact, I love champagne so much that we've been there twice, last year for a week long holiday (see my post about holidaying in Champagne). I've traipsed round Moet, Veuve, Dom Perignon, the lot. I've tasted big brands and small boutique "maisons". One of my favourite brands of champagne up until now is the boutique brand, Tribault. This "maison" is farmed on the same fields as Dom Perignon and apparently tastes very similar, it's also worth noting that Tribaut is around £10 a bottle. Understandably we stocked up.
So it's pretty obvious, I'm keen to try lots of different types of champagne, and it isn't always the case that most expensive is best. Most people would say they like Moet and Chandon, but to me it has quite a sour taste and is not one of my favourites at all. I've heard on the grapevine that Aldi has some lovely champagne which is priced at £11.99 a bottle, total bargain, though I was lucky enough to be sent some by Aldi for the purposes of this review, happy days! At this price it's perfect for a Christmas present or buy a couple of bottles in just to "have", there doesn't always need to be a special occasion for Champers
The champagne was totally lovely. It was light and fresh and I thought stacked up well against far more expensive brands. We had it with food but I can't see why it wouldn't work at any occasion! I actually think it would be great for a party as you could buy a case of it and at £11.99 a go it would be fab value.
Did you also know? "Already this year, Aldi’s beers, wines and spirits range has received 82 accolades from internationally recognised competitions, including 33 awards at the International Wine Challenge 2013, 20 awards at the International Wine and Spirits Competition 2013 and 10 awards at the International Spirits Challenge 2013."
After doing my weekly shop at Aldi I was really impressed how many brands there were and how much cheaper it was than going to the other supermarkets. I was worried that the meat and fresh sections wouldn't be up to scratch, but actually I thought they were great. It's definitely worth a try, if only for this amazing value and delicious champers!
