We were kind enough to be given a bottle of Harrods Champagne as a wedding gift last year and we decided to open it on our first wedding anniversary a couple of months ago.
With regards to the specifics it is a Brut Blanc De Blancs rand Cru Grands Reserve at 12%. The label clearly spells it out as Harrods Champagne; depending on your point of view this either spells class or a certain amount of trepidation with a branded champagne.
The smell is surprisingly minty and also a hint of nettles; not something I’d associate normally with a champagne. The taste was initially quite sharp with a strong taste of apples. It softened significantly on the second try and was then a very easy drink.
Overall I was pleasantly surprised with it and it is a perfectly good champagne. Worth buying as a gift for somebody on a special occasion, particularly if they aren’t necessarily au fait with their sparkling wine and champagne.
