|Grapes||Pinot Meunier, Chardonnay, Pinot Noir|
|Origin||France, Non Vintage|
A blend of Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier, with about 10% Chardonnay to give a dash of elegance. Considerably better than some widely available cheap Grandes Marques, and very consistent in quality and value.

A great value alternative to pricier names. It is rare to find Champagne of this quality at such a modest price.
I could not believe the price. It is a 'soft-landings' type of champagne, easy to drink, ripe and gulpable.

The best house Champagne I have tasted in a very long time
Bargain price for this tight, herby apple fruited Champagne with its light, yeasty character. The palate has a vivacious freshness too, lots of clean, crisp, lemon zest fruit and zingily dry (but not tart) citrus acidity. Fine aperitif stuff, or lovely with oysters.
Clean, light and super refreshing. No enormous depth but would make a lovely summer party champagne. GV.

Spicy green apple and some red apple on the nose. Soft, pleasant sparkle. Balanced and fresh with crisp acidity and a bit of toastiness on the medium to long finish. 88 points, very good value.

Savoury nose suggests bone-dry wine. Mouthfilling fizz. Perfectly respectable and quite an impact on the palate. Quite long for the price.

Champagne Benedick: Full Wine List and Profile
Benedick comes from a family-owned 'négociant-manipulant' which also has considerable vineyard holdings, which may help explain the consistently high quality they maintain at a price which may be marginally higher than the cheapest, but for a quality level which is always much higher.
There's always room for celebration when Champagne is this good at this price! Made especially for LEA & SANDEMAN by a family-owned négociant-manipulant near Epernay, Champagne Benedick is mostly Pinot Noir which lends a little more bready/briochey character to the crisp elegant fruit. How can you say no?!
