Egon Ronay after having blindtasted 30 champagnes.
Mister Ronay, a bit of an institution in a British, gastronomical connection, even says that it would be a mistake to buy a champagne just because it is a known name. The supermarket bubblies are with prices between 14 and 18 pounds a lot cheaper, and they stay the course.
So maybe champagnelovers should pay a visit to the local Sainsbury's, Marks & Spencer or even the German harddicount store, Aldi, next time they are crossing the Channel.
Now on top of the taste there is quite a lot of signalling in a bottle of champagne. So I wonder if it is the same people who buys Tescobubbles and Taittinger or Pommery.
