    April 21, 2016 - Better than previous encounters at airline lounges. Good toasty notes. A bit light but good value.

    April 11, 2016 - Palest gold. Light nose. Pretty straightforward, nondescript taste. Uninspiring, moderate value at this price. [Cork + cage; 12% abv; Sainsbury's, on offer at £15]

    March 20, 2016 - Really very nice introductory champagne. It compares very favorably with similarly priced offerings in the US such as Schramsberg. Lots of tiny bubbles exploding in the mouth. Flavors of apple, pear, and perhaps a hint of lemon. Certainly not the greatest, but at the price, $28, it has a nice QPR.

    March 5, 2016 - This bottle must have been sitting on the local newsagent's shelf for years. It had lost much of its gas and the cork did not expand at all. Poured a beautiful shade of amber. Palate showed apple skin and glints of honey. Unfortunately there was also some oxidation, cardboard character and bitterness. Clearly flawed, but interesting to drink.

    February 23, 2016 - Quite deep lemon. Full, fruity, very toasty nose. Quite low acidity, lots of berry fruit. Approachable, pleasant; a good beginner champagne at this price. [Cork + cage; 12% abv; Sainsbury's, on offer at £15]

    (NV Heidsieck & Co Monopole Blue Top Brut Champagne) Brings some nice aromatic complexity with pear, a light nuttiness, and abundant spice. The palate is light, creamy and tart with a lingering, spice filled finish.

    (NV Heidsieck & Co. Monopole Blue Top Brut Champagne) Purchased Summer 2000. An attractive light onion-skin colour. Fairly coarse bead. The nose carries a light yeastiness together with some citrus fruit. A middle of the road palate, with more subtle biscuity yeasty notes sitting with sharp citrus fruit acidity. Mousse is a little aggressive. Pleasant drinking.
