Jean Plener Fils Brut NV champagne half bottle review - WineUncorked: Wine Reviews and Tips

Finally a champagne that isn't so acidic that it removes your teeth enamel and is so nice that you may want a full bottle (available for £26.50 from Moore Champagne). Made by a small independent grower producer, this predominantely Pinot Noir non-vintage brut is lightly fizzy but still packs a punch with its floral and fresh honeycomb aromas. The flavour is a complex mix of lime, sharp apple and hay that is enjoyable as an aperitif. A very nice old-fashioned style of champagne that you won't find in the supermarkets.
