The Champagne Adventure

I recently got into champagnes; thus far I’ve explored G.H. Mumm Cordon Rouge, Veuve Clicquot Yellow Label, Segura Viudas Reserva Heredad and Cook’s champagne.

I’m not here to give a yeast-driven-citrus-based aromas analysis nor a toasty-character-perfectly paired with foie gras review.

All I have is the Segura Viudas was the least complex i.e. not overly multi-layered, and it was the second least supple - Cook’s was the most supple.  All bottles were rich especially the Veuve Clicquot Yellow Label which takes second place.  I LOVE the Cordon Rouge’s finish but the Segura Viudas Reserva is the definitely the most balanced!

Please remember, DO NOT DRINK & DRIVE!
