Customer Reviews

Great with food Review by QZT
Most people drink champagne before a meal, and I think this would be too rich for that purpose, but I tried it with cheese soufflé on Valentine's Day and it was sublime. (Posted on 15/02/2016)
Nasty Review by Amore
I totally agree with Geoff The Chef as far as too smelly. Then I diverge completely. Any vintage champagne I've drank (not many unfortunately) never smelt or tasted so "rotten". I hope it was a one-off. Not sure whether to open the 2nd bottle or return to Vintage Roots as they suggest. (Posted on 07/05/2015)
'Serious' wine Review by GeoffTheChef
Couldn't resist trying the English 'Wine of the Year', so we had a bottle with friends. Our guests thought it was too 'smelly', but we absolutely loved it. It reminds of top quality vintage champagne, which some people also think is 'smelly'! (Posted on 17/04/2015)
