(2021) There is no Nicolas Courtin (or at least not one who has anything to do with this Champagne) as it is a brand name, exclusive to Majestic, as far as I can see. The wine has a fairly deep rosé colour for Champagne, and there is a nice biscuity quality that pink Champagne doesn't always show, and small red berry fruitiness: think cranberry and redcurrant. In the mouth a creamy mousse and plenty more depth of red fruits. There's a hint of sweetness to this Brut wine that makes it soft and easy to drink, so a pretty good choice all round if your Valentine's day requirement is for a pink fizz suitable for sipping on its own or with poached or smoked salmon perhaps. £16.99 as part of a mixed six is the price to be on for this one. Watch the video for more information.
(2019) Based upon the 2014 vintage.  Aroma of slightly unripe pear on the nose with hints of white pepper.  The palate has a crunchy red fruit feel, interplaying with a tangerine grip.  A little bitter on the finish, perhaps a wine that needs to recover from its disgorgement? Leave in your cellar for around six months, and drink from 2019 until 2021.
(2018) Shop around for this wine, as it is widely available and at time of review prices ranged from a promotional £25.00 to well over £30.00 in different stores. It's a crisp, relatively straightforward rosé, just a touch of Chardonnay blended with the two Pinots. Small red berries- redcurrant and raspberry - notes, dry onto the palate, the mousse crisp and fine, and although forward and crowd-pleasing in its straightforward way, there is a good acid core and decent length. A good buy at the promotional price.
(2017) Produced for Morrison's by Champagne Lombard, this has a relatively deep colour and cherry pit fruity but dry character on the nose, a hint of earthiness and bracken. The palate shows lots of zesty orange. Clean and long - and dry.
(2016) Made by the Champagne house of Devaux, as recently featured here on wine-pages, 'Oeil de Perdrix' refers to the delicate 'partridge eye' colour of this wine, 100% Pinot Noir, with delicate aromas of redcurrant and raspberry, a touch of briar, and a delicate palate too which is light, fresh and easy to drink. With its crisp, dry, subtle red fruit flavours it is delicious aperitif stuff, and a perfect St Valentine's Day treat.
