Marks & Spencer's Oudinot champagne
This is an exciting new discovery for us. For some reason, we don't often buy wine from M & S, but this is a good reason to change our habits. We were given it last week by visitors from Hong Kong, and opened it in celebration at possibly never having to go to Ikea ever again. The surprise was how much we liked the style. It wasn't aiming at the toasty notes we usually prefer, but really impressed with its creaminess, balance, and to be honest, moreishness. One of those occasions when a bottle between two of you definitely isn't enough. And they're selling it for about 13 quid at the moment!
