Congratulations to the guys at Aldi, whose Champagne has just been awarded a silver at an international Champagne competition.

Aldi’s bestselling Veuve Monsigny Champagne, which costs just £12.49 a bottle, took home the coveted silver award at the 2019 Drinks Business Champagne Masters. It was commended for its excellent taste and reasonable price, and was awarded the same medal as Lanson Black Label and Laurent-Perrier, which costs nearly four times the price of the Veuve Monsigny Champagne. Pretty impressive stuff, I’d say.

The bargain Champagne is produced by world-renowned, Philizot & Fils. Aldi describes it as “a complex yet elegant blend of Pinot Noir, Pinot Meunier and Chardonnay, the Veuve Monsigny Champagne is carefully aged in cellars for 48 months to form its unique taste, with delectable notes of ripe apples and soft red fruits.”

Julie Ashfield, Managing Director of Buying at Aldi UK, said: “We are delighted that our Veuve Monsigny has been recognised by experts once again, especially alongside other well-known brands that are famed for their quality.

“The award is testament to our close working relationship with Philizot & Fils, who continue to meet ongoing demand for great-value sparkling wine, that’s suitable for any occasion, and this year have expanded the much-loved range to include delicious organic offerings. In fact, our Champagne now accounts for one in every 14 bottles of all Champagne bought in UK supermarkets.”

Aldi’s wine expert Sam Caporn, The Mistress of Wine said: “The Veuve Monsigny Champagne Brut has done it again, winning another silver medal after scooping a silver last year. This latest accolade really highlights the excellent quality of this elegant fizz – the perfect pop for any occasion!”

Let’s celebrate Veuve Monsigny Champagne being so good by, oh I don’t know… drinking loads of Veuve Monsigny Champagne!
