Waitrose Bredon Brut NV Champagne

I'm not really sure what the point of this Champagne is.  It's made Piper & Charles Heidsieck, who also produce a Brut NV, a Blanc de Blancs, and a vintage Champagne for Waitrose.  They are all good value, and the Bredon is the least expensive of the lot.  Perhaps this is just to satisfy a price point, the "bargain basement" Champagne.

Either way, it's pretty decent.  It didn't blow my socks off, but where else would you find a Champagne made by a decent producer for under £15? For a second opinion, it also usually gets a least a commendation in Decanter magazine tastings, if not a medal.

  1. I might buy a case from Wairose now! Cheers Tim!
