Cuperly Cuvee Prestige Brut Grand Cru, Champagne NV $60

A terrific mouthful of Champagne at a great price. Medium-full yellow colour; burnt-toast, cracked-yeast and roast hazelnut/nougat aromas; a hint of almond or marzipan. The palate is full and smooth, balanced and generous, with harmony and roundness, a tickle of sweetness adding richness to the middle before a clean, appetising finish. 12 per cent alcohol. 93/100 (Huon’s Wine 360)

Food: smoked salmon blinis

Stockist: Porter’s Liquor and Red Bottle outlets
