Grand Reserve Brut Champagne Benedick NV
|Grapes||Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, Pinot Meunier|
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. L&S (Mar 2005)
*Case price discount: Mix any 12 bottles (or 9l equivalent) of wine or 6 bottles of Champagne, Spirits, Sweet Wine or Fortified to get the 'case price' for each bottle.
Savoury nose suggests bone-dry wine. Mouthfilling fizz. Perfectly respectable and quite an impact on the palate. Quite long for the price. October 2011 Rating: 16.5 Jancis Robinson OBE MW - www.JancisRobinson.com
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, very good value. Rating: 88 Matt Walls www.mattwalls.co.uk
Clean, light and super refreshing. No enormous depth but would make a lovely summer party champagne. GV.Jancis Robinson OBE MW - www.JancisRobinson.com
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?!
With every man and his wife on the lookout for Champagne 'deals', it is sad that so many people overlook the best 'deals' of all - high quality, grower-made Champagnes, packed with character, and at prices significantly below any of the best prices you might find for Grande Marque Champagnes.
