I'm not a champagne aficionado, and bubbly means headache, but this is probably the best sparkling wine I can remember
"It is no wonder that HEIDSIECK & C° MONOPOLE distributed 1 million bottles world wide during 1895 and was considered by connoisseurs as a very great wine." A full and fruity flavour in the mouth.Fine bubbles, creamy mousse and a lingering finish. Strong and generous nose. Slightly woody. Considering I bought it at 15 euro per bottle (about half price of normal retail), super bargain !
The champagne is a lovely dark wheat color. It releases a bouquet of warm brioche, citrus, and crisp apples. There is a slight mineral, creamy taste with a lingering finish. It went well with oysters and desserts. On its own, it has a slightly dry finish, but balances nicely when paired with food - and it can be paired with different cuisines.
by far one of the best values in champagne...recomended by friend @ K&D wines on madison ave nyc...for the price blows out yellow label...you will not be disappointed!!

winemakers notes: Wine Spectator Top 100 of 2007! "Elegant and expressive, this delivers floral, pear and toffee flavors matched to a creamy texture. Beautifully integrated, this lingers nicely on the mineral finish. Drink now through 2010." Wine Spectator 91 Points critical acclaim: "Impressively fine bubbles cascade up from the bottom of the glass, suggesting richness and elegance. Theres a lush creaminess in the mouth, packed with flavors of candied orange, apricot and pineapple. The wine scores a flavor bulls eye in every possible way, from the textured, enticing bouquet to the rich, mouth-filling fruit and on through the lingering, precise and powerful finish." 93 Points, Wine Enthusiast
A crisp, bracing style, with light toast, lemon and honey notes. Turns firm and tight on the finish. Needs food or a little time. Best from 2009 through 2012.
One of the oldest Champagne houses, Heidsieck Monopole was founded in 1785. Since its purchase in 1996 by Belgian Paul-Francois Vranken, the house’s Champagnes have been steadily improving. This year’s non-vintage Blue Top cuvée is the highest rated to date. It’s a blend of 70 percent Pinot Noir, 20 percent Chardonnay and 10 percent Pinot Meunier.
Candied apple character, with a hint of red berry and a refined texture, mark this elegant, medium-bodied bubbly, which is fresh, with a moderate finish.
