Tasting Aldi’s Monsigny Champagne No. III (Episode 229)

In this episode, we taste a bottle of champagne kindly sent to us by Aldi.

The bottle in question, Monsigny Champagne No. III retails at £12.49 in the UK.

It is a great bottle of champagne and to our taste performed better than some champagnes that retail for twice the price!

We had absolutely no reservations in recommending this champagne fantastic value at this fantastic price!

19 Crimes Cabernet Sauvignon (Episode 216)

In this episode, we taste another of the 19 Crimes Wines from South East Australia, this time their Cabernet Sauvignon.

These wines each depict a criminal deported to Australia for a crime committed in the UK, quite often for something like unauthorised fishing.

On the nose, we smelt Black Cherry, a touch of vanilla and a “Jammy” smell probably promoted by the full-on fruit notes.

On the palate, the wine had a great mouthfeel, with a lot going on the glass giving a complex combination of flavours and then finally leaving an after taste of cherries.

We mentioned in the video that another YouTuber, John from HillBillySelectReviews, had reviewed this wine with two of his pals and interestingly they also detected black cherry and Jamminess on the nose. They also came up with a hint of chocolate and raisin on the palate.

Sainsbury’s Primitivo (Episode 214)

This wine from Sainsbury’s own brand – Taste the Difference is a wine well known to John M, but not to John L – have you heard of it? Let us know in the comments section.

The wine was available from Sainsbury’s at £7.00 at the time of recording.

 

On the nose, John M felt the smell reminded him of a damp dog which wasn’t meant to be a derogatory comment!

Also, a spiciness was detected that reminded John L of stewed apple and Rhubarb and apple crumble for John L.

On the palate, the taste is very fruity at first then the tannins kick after which a liquorice taste kicks in. Perhaps a wine that is best eating with a great Italian pasta dish.
