If filling the flutes for your next soirée with big price tag French Champagne is a bit out of your budget – here’s a bargain buy French sparkling imported by an NZ Master of Wine and given a Top Value Award by another!
Eugène Chevalier formed House Chevalier back in 1920 and was the first producer of Méthode Traditionelle (made in the same way as Champagne) in the Mâcon region of Burgundy, just a few hours drive away from the Champagne region. These days owned by the mega Boisset Collection wine group – the third largest in France and the largest in Burgundy with 28 wineries in France and the USA!
NZ Master of Wine Steve Bennett scours the wine world for the next bargain buy, and he’s found one in Chevalier Blanc de Blancs Brut! It’s a Blanc de Blancs style which means it’s made using only white grape varieties.
Scoring 89/100 and a Top Value Award with Master of Wine Bob Campbell, who said “Fine, creamy sparkling wine…a deliciously drinkable texture. Clean, fresh fizz”
For sheer bang for your buck for a sub-$20 French sparkling this is up there! We weren’t the only ones impressed, with local critic Sam Kim scoring this 90/100. Sam said “offering excellent value and charming drinking”.
