Hell, why not? A bottle of bubbly on a Monday - decadent, crazy even, but certainly fun. Excessive maybe at just under twenty quid a bottle; cracking it open mid-afternoon might just be considered as such too!

Wine Tasting Note: Chapel Down Pinot Reserve Sparkling, 2001, England.
Direct from the English Wine Group for £11.99 per bottle.
The colour of later autumn straw and an aroma of biscuits. From soils rich in chalk, like those in Champagne, it's a traditional method wine verging on the complexity found in decent Champagne. Made from a mix of Pinot Noir and Pinot Blanc; it is fresh and crisp with flavours of baked apple crumble, just without the sweetness, and slips down a treat. Alcohol 12%. For food trying pairing with a seafood platter or as we had a creamy prawn risotto.
Scribblings Rating - 90/100
