Heidseick Monopole Blue Top Brut Champagne Review by Billy
Nose: Huge aromas that waft even when the glass is on the table. Crisp granny smith apple and buttered toast with caramel underneath.
Palate: good Brut dryness and solid acid core but with bubbles that fail to dance. They prickle but are lazy.
Finish: Floral finish that hints at nuttiness.
Overall: I paid $40 for this at a local wine store. The Heidseick & Company Blue Top Monopole Brut Champagne can be found anywhere from $25 (a steal) to $45 (got money to burn?). It was paired with baklava for dessert and went very well. Shop around and find this on sale and treat you and your Christmas guests to a lovely champagne.
