Champagne Review

Marie Henry Brut Champagne

Countess Mary of Champagne

It is said that Marie was the countess of Champagne, and Henry, her Count.  Not only was she the countess, she was also a patron for literature.

I like the late countess, Marie, but what of her wine?

Marie Henry Champagne Brut, 12%
Morrisons £15

It’s Morrisons’ cheapest bottle of Champers, at fifteen smackeroonies.  It purrs rather than pops, but that isn’t at all a bad thing, no sirree.  It’s a bit of an old lady though, think Granny Marie: gentle, floral-smelling and eerily sweet.

And the colour… ah, I can see perpetuating the old lady metaphor here could be an overkill, so let’s just go for ‘golden’.

It’s a low-budget party Champagne, that would neither offend nor tantalise your guests. A glassful would be harmless enough, but for the price there are far more glamourous-gran Champagnes to choose from.
