2015 Tesco Finest Vintage Grand Cru Champagne

I tasted some of Tesco’s Christmas wine range recently and found a few gems. This year, it seems everyone is shopping early for Christmas, so here are two wines from Tesco that I highly recommend for our readers to buy.

2015 Tesco Finest Vintage Grand Cru Champagne €35.00

We all love a glass of fizz and even more when it comes from the Champagne region in France, but Champagne can be expensive. Tesco’s Finest Champagne offers great value and punches WAY above it’s weight, a bargain at this price. This is a Blanc de Blanc which means it is made from 100% Chardonnay. It has a wonderful brioche aroma and the gorgeous acidity you’d expect to find, it’s also quite a fruity style of Champagne.

The perfect red wine to go with turkey, one with a bit of age and lots of fruit. This Tesco Finest does what it says. An aged Spanish wine style made with a good producer Baron de Ley, snap this up for your Christmas dinner. It was beautifully smoky on the nose, with red fruit aromas. Soft and appealing when tasted with all those lovely vanilla/spice flavours you’d expect. The perfect red wine to serve with roast turkey and all the trimmings.
