It’s the ALDI champagne that’s already been voted ‘better than Moet’ by top experts around the world.
Well now it’s been revealed that the budget supermarket sells more than 3,400 bottles A DAY of their famous Veuve Monsigny Champagne Brut.
That’s right, new figures released by Aldi show that they sold 1.25 million bottles of the French champagne around the world last year - or 3,425 bottles a day.
And the best news? It’s available in Australia all year around for $21.99 - less than half the price of its more expensive rivals, including Bollinger and Moet.
What’s more, it was awarded the Top 100 Blue Gold at the Sydney International Wine Competition - and has taken out awards at four other prestigious shows.
Better still, in a British blind taste test by UK consumer group Which? - similar to Australia’s Choice - the Aldi bubbles were voted ABOVE Moet and many other top drops including Laurent-Perrier, which sells for well over $50.
Wine review site Glass of Bubbly describes the Aldi Veuve Monsigny as the perfect party champagne, saying ‘there is not much else in the market that can compete with it.’
Meanwhile, acclaimed reviewer Campbell Mattinson from The Wine Front awarded the Aldi champers a whopping 92 points - beating a lot more well-known French campaigns. ‘It's bright, fresh and flavoursome,’ he revealed. ‘It's easy to see the attraction, and the quality. Damn good buying, you'd have to say. It tastes of spiced apples, honeysuckle, fuzzy sweet peach and almonds. It rings refreshingly through the finish, with no lack of length. Excellent style, and value.’
No wonder they sell so many bottles!
