Champagne Le Mesnil Blanc de Blancs NV

Yeasty yet perfumed like a baker’s daughter; frothy with a finer bead than a borrowers pearl necklace. Light golden colour, citrus, biscuits and nut flavour, and a clean creamy texture.

This Blanc de Blanc is stunning for the price and drinks better than Champagnes four or five times the value. I bought this on a whim for the Lady’s birthday but it will definitely be back in the fridge soon.

If you are looking for some decent bubbles you could do a lot worse than this. More words about the terrior and all that jazz here; don’t buy it Fortnum and Mason though, for the bag like me, you can get it far cheaper online!
