"Almond, nutty and walnut nose with croissant flavours. Good, even flavour. Massive amount of spiced and roasted nuts; more full than champagne. It displays white pepper herbal flavours that you would expect from a cool climate who have only just cropped the fruit. " Robert Geddes MW, Drink Trade (01/JAN/2011)
Since 1886, Grandin has produced an excellent sparkling from the Loire Valley in southern France. You'll find apples, floral and citrus characters with a touch of honey and yeast. Great French for a fraction of the price. John Lehman, Range News (28/OCT/2010)
Fruit for this classic Champagne is sourced from the Loire, Charentes and South West of France. The wine undergoes secondary fermentation in the bottle before being aged for a minimum of 12 months to create a Champagne that is well balanced with toasty notes.National Liquor News (01/OCT/2010)

"Clearly showing the benefits of some time in the bottle, this sparkling wine has some attractive toasty, yeasty notes backed by some crisp green apple and lemony fruit with a creamy and well balance finish. An easy drinking sparkler with a little French flair."The Imported Wine Handbook, Angus Hughson (AUG/2008)

Scents of flowers, yeast, light citrus and a hint of smoke.
It rolls happily into a fruity mouthful of juicy, flavours. Delicate almond characters with undertones of hazelnut, subtle touch of clove and limes. Crisp and elegant, a well rounded, easy to enjoy palate, with good fruit, fresh flavours and depth of flavour.
