"Light, aromatic, floral Champagne, with subtle bread and brioche characters. Attractive wine with an ethereal texture and a fine thread of mouth-watering acidity. An appealing Champagne offering value at this price" Bob Campbell, Master of Wine, Real Review, Nov 2019

"This Champagne offers an array of flavours, including toasted brioche, gala apple and lemon zest with a touch of honey. Elegant, but with good intensity and a moderate, nut-tinged finish. This is an immensely seductive Champagne filled with delicious flavours. It is beautifully expressed on the nose showing white stone fruit, lemon peel, floral and yeasty characters with nuances of brioche and mushroom. The palate is concentrated and generously flavoured, delivering fine texture and sensual mouthfeel, brilliantly framed by bright acidity" Sam Kim, Wine Orbit

"Awesome champagne imported by Master of Wine Stephen Bennett. This bubbly has rich, dry, toasty flavours, is made mostly from Pinot Noir, as its yeasty flavours show" Joelle Thomson

"When we think about top-notch bubbly, the big names of Champagne, the so-called “grand marques”, often come to mind first. But this fresh, fine, concentrated Champagne from a very small producer is right up in that league. On the side of fuller, red-fruit style (dominated with pinot noir and pinot meunier), but crisp and lively to boot. At this sharp price, Cazanove is now an occasional guilty pleasure in my household" Paul Tudor, Master of Wine

Charles de Cazanove is a rich, full-bodied, complex and satisfying Champagne-style due to the dominance of Pinot varieties from the Montagne de Reims region.

Founded in Reims 1811, Champagne Charles de Cazanove is one of the oldest in the region with a glorious brand history.  100% family owned by 4th generation winemakers, the Rapenau family. Today’s wine combines tradition with modernity through two centuries of dedication to Champagne. This Tradition Pere et Fils is exceptional Champagne at a great price. One of the ten most popular Champagne brand in France with more than 3million bottles sold annually.  60% Pinot Noir, 30% Pinot Meunier, 10% Chardonnay.

Food Pairing: It is soft and mellow enough to enjoy on its own but has the intensity to match a wide variety of rich seafood, pate, pork and chicken dishes.

Far better than the most expensive Champagne, have ordered two cases.

Great, easy-drinking bubbles. Great VFM, would happily buy again
