Expert Reviews

87 Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - November 2007

($36; LADQJ on back label) Light straw. White flowers and peach on the nose, with a light orange quality adding verve. Gently spicy tangerine and pit fruit flavors are supple and round, finishing with an echo of spice. Seems less sweet than some recent releases under this label.

A beautiful, clean champagne
10/12/2013
by PinotNoir463797
I am typically an old world red wine drinker, big bold, chewy, dusty, cabs, grand cru's are my favorite. But when I choose champagne, I absolutely love Moet White Star. Among all champagnes I have tried, it is absolutely my favorite. Clean and crisp on the palate, White Star lacks the tartness of a brute or the candiness of a Spumante. I have tried Dom at $150 a bottle and find it tart, overpriced, and displeasing. For roughly $40, White Star is my favorite champagne amongst a host of other choices. I love the clean taste, and this is the one I come back to again and again.

I'm not a wine drinker, but I have found that I do like champagne. I found it very drinkable. I would purchase it again, however I have a question for the experienced winos out there: What would you recommend that is similar or better that costs less (<$30) that I can find at my local liquor store if not my local megamart? I'd drink champagne more, but $30 is a bit steep for regular drinking and I don't know what to look for at the store.
I like This One....

I like the taste and the bitterness of this champagne. The price is inexpensive and its Moet for goodness sakes!

About Champagne

Champagne-making is the highly refined art of blending base wines into a whole that is greater than the sum of its parts. These component wines come from different grape varieties (the white grape Chardonnay and the red varieties Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier) and from different villages and vineyards. And because only four or five harvests per decade...

Chardonnay

The best Chardonnays in the world continue to arrive from the region where the grape first emerged: the chalk, clay, and limestone vineyards of Burgundy and Chablis. While the origins of the grape were disputed for many years, with some speculating that the grape came all the way from the Middle East, DNA researchers at the University of California-Davis proved in 1999 that Chardonnay actually developed...
