A rich style of champagne with excellent pastry matching potential.
We matched this with carbonated, cold brew Earl Grey, which was a bit of a challenge for some people! The tea was a bit like Pimms actually and the vintage champagne is rich, with a nutty, character. It has a creamy texture making it a good match for light starters and cheese straws – champagne and pastry have a heavenly affinity in our humble opinion. It would class as a ‘grower’ champagne, coming from a small, family run producer. This one is promoted at half price in Tesco, and like many of these deals, it’s great value at half price.
