This is the magnum sized bottle, and aimed at the party group. It pours with a coarse foam, that lingers. The tell-tale aroma of Chardonnay comes through so you know this is a champagne. It has a medium lemon colour, slightly darker than you might expect, but this is probably indicative of the blend with the Pinot Noir and the Meunier. The taste is impressive, expanding in the mouth to reveal a light refreshing mix of floral and summer fruits. This is not at all a traditional dry Champagne but is a superb example of a friendly and inclusive wine. There would be no complaints about this wine, and the price makes it a bargain.
Nicely packaged and in a magnum bottle, this is priced for the Christmas Party period. The magnum sized bottle cannot fail to impress in any environment; you will be seen to be making a great statement.
This Champagne is part of the Aldi Premium Christmas range for 2012. Watch for stock as it is limited.
