Christmas is all about giving and the bosses at Aldi have officially done their part by gifting all customers with a festive discount on their award-winning champagne right before the big day.
The budget supermarket is currently selling its renowned bottle of Veuve Monsigny Champagne Brut for the bargain price of just £9.99 – £1.50 cheaper than its original price of £11.49.
The famous fizz is made from a mix of Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier. It has not only received hundreds of five-star reviews but beaten a plethora of high end brands including Laurent-Perrier and Moët & Chandon in numerous blind taste tests over the years.
The champagne, which is produced by champagne house Philizot et Fils, has won three international medals this year alone, most memorably receiving the ‘silver outstanding’ medal at this year’s International Wine and Spirits Competition in June.
‘In my honest opinion, the Veuve Monsigny Champagne Brut is one of the very best, if not THE best value champagne in the UK today,’ Aldi wine expert, Sam Caporn, said at the time. ‘It is staggering quality for such a reasonably priced, tasty, sophisticated fizz.’
Reviews on Aldi’s website seem to agree as the comments are flooded with happy customers gushing about the inexpensive bubbly.
One customer wrote: ‘A great champagne had it last year & ordered again this Xmas ……once you’ve had one you’ll want six it’s so refreshing & tasty….bubbling over sums it up …..and the delivery service 2nd to none …Well done Aldi!!!!!’
A similar review called it ‘just right’, explaining that the beverage had ‘a great balance’ and a ‘great bouquet with a note of spice that explode with the first gulp. right amount of bubble.’
Another customer labelled it the ‘Best Everyday Fizz on the Market’, explaining: ‘This is a little gem of a champagne. If you like your fizz with a sharper, citrusy edge then this is the wine for you. It has consistently fared well in blind taste tests and we’ve been consuming it as our ‘everyday’ fizz for several years. It’s not going to compete with a Pol Roger or a Louis Roderer but if you like Moet then this is probably right up your street.’
