This Sparkling Chardonnay is produced especially for Aldi in the traditional style of “bottle fermentation” by Maison de Vigneron, Crancot, France. It is aged in cellars to give it a subtle complexity which can be enjoyed. Lemony in colour, it has a hint of apple and lemon in the aroma. Course bubbles give a course foam which does not last but bubbles for a reasonable time. It has a slight lemon and which fruit taste but without the sharper zing you might expect at this price, and leaves a long, cleansing finish.
The bottle is different and stands out form the crowd with its flared shape. Most guests will think this is a much more expensive wine, and think you have chosen well.

|Comments:||Aldi has a reputation for cheap products and being at the bottom end of the market for food. This however has not stopped them stocking an ever-changing range of good wines at an even better price point. This Chardonnay is made and bottled for Aldi, as stated on the label; Aldi are one of the largest shippers of wine in Europe so they do carry some clout even if their pricing is always at the lower end. You can expect to pick up reasonable drinking wine for about half of shop price, and most is packaged in a manner that makes it look much more expensive. This sparkling Chardonnay is a no-brainer at this price. Buy a few and stick them in your fridge.|
