London. Tonight, before we go to dinner, we've opened a bottle of this classic Heidsieck Monopole Blue. It is a crisp, bright, with a slight yeastiness (brioche) Champagne. Refreshing and easy to drink.
Legend has it that Monopole Blue was the official Champagne of the Titanic. All I can say to that is serve it well chilled : ).
24% Chardonnay, 48%, Pinot Noir, and 28% Pinot Meunier; 12% ETOH .
It was great with Maria's Spanikopita.
This may be a week of champagne reviews.
