Waitrose have a 50% discount on this 2004 vintage champagne at the moment. Apparently it was selling for 30 quid (too expensive) before being reduced to £14.99 a bottle, or a very tempting £14.24 if you buy a case of six.
It’s lovely and fresh, with a tasty chardonnay character. Quite long too. It develops in the the glass over an hour or two which indicates that if you were to put a case away in the cellar or under the stairs for a year it will mellow and broaden out further.
Offer ends on the 22nd (though I suspect it may be extended if they haven’t sold out).
