Following a period of prolonged inebriation for reasons I seem to have forgotten (it might have been my birthday), I’ve slightly neglected to type up any reviews, despite having quaffed enough to fill the bottle bin twice over.
So I’ve trawled through my notes, deciphered my spidery scrawl and first up from the backlog is:Francois Dubois Brut Champagne NV Tesco Chadonnay, Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier Around £30 (’twas a birthday present)
I bloomin enjoyed this bottle. I like dry wines, ciders and Champagnes, but this is dry like…crisp autumn leaves and it’s tart too like gooseberries, or just going out wearing nothing but autumn leaves to cover your bits. Perfect with cheesecake and cream, or as we had it, with smelly cheese and cheese crackers from Marksy’s. Phwoar. I’m salivating just thinking about it. Mouth watering, bubbly fizziness mingled with rich, creamy cheese. Is there anything quite as sexy?
Er, slightly disconcerting but reading through my notes it seems that I have scrawled the words ‘golddigger’, ‘candy man’ and ‘dirty’ on this page along with the review; I fear my mind wandered slightly after all that cheese and now I’ve allowed you a disturbing insight in to my musical tastes as well as Champagne. Anyway, it’s less gold, more pale yellow. Being so dry it’s no candy man, but there is a hint of biscuity goodness and it’s dirty, like er, a dirty bitch?
Would make a good prezzie even if it is a bit on the pricey side for my liking.
4/5, come on!
