Champagne Veuve Monsigny Brut No 3, Philizot

We offered this to the Kerins to celebrate Paul’s Birthday. An Aldi own label, part of the crop received at Lesley’s Birthday Party. I thought this was fast approaching its best before; a sweet, corky taste with good bubbles, peaky rusty around the edges.

From Aldi, been looking forward to this. For the money very quaffable.

£3.99, €6.39 here so not unreasonable price comparison given our brutal wine tax..

The Mirror Wine Correspondent described this in their article:

“Christmas wine wonders from Aldi for less than £5”
