How was your Christmas? Did you eat lots of delicious food? We had crab legs and lobster tails from Costco and those are DELICIOUS! With New Years Eve just a few days away I figured it was the perfect opportunity to review the Costco Kirkland Signature Champagne!
Costco Kirkland Signature Champagne is actually produced in France and is a combination of Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Pinor Meunier grapes. The champagne tastes refreshing, crisp, slightly critusy and has a long finish. Recently I learned while touring a vineyard in Italy that a "good" wine or champagne should have a 10 to 20 second finish, meaning you can taste it in your mouth for about 10-20 seconds after you swallow it. I found that pretty interesting. This champagne doesn't have that oak barrel taste and isn't overly sweet. I think it's definitely one of the more "bubbly" champagnes I've had so it has that sharp carbonated taste from the fermenting sugar/yeast when you drink it and swallow it.
Did you know that Brut Champagne has less added sugar? So if you're looking for a champagne with less sugar look for champagne branded as "Brut". I don't know the nutrition information for the Kirkland Signature Champagne but I can tell you there's not much nutritional value in champagne. However champagne is usually something that signifies celebration so that's a positive!
We don't really need to talk about convenience when it comes to champagne, but for someone like me who hasn't mastered the art of opening champagne it's not that convenient because I either would have to watch a Youtube video on how to open champagne without taking my eye out or wait until someone who knows how to open champagne without getting it everywhere is around.
The price of the Costco Kirkland Signature Champagne is why I recommend it. Compared to other champagne of similar quality you're saving a ton of money by buying the Costco Kirkland Signature Champagne while getting the same quality of champagne. The Costco Kirkland Signature Champagne Brut will run you about $30 dollars Canadian while the other brands of similar quality and production will cost you about $50 dollars Canadian at minimum.
Even if you don't drink champagne or alcohol at all but you're hosting others or attending a New Years Eve party and want to bring a bottle of champagne. I definitely recommend the Costco Kirkland Signature Champagne. It's crisp, refreshing and is a very high quality bottle of champagne for a reasonable cost. If you served this to guests I'm almost positive they would think it's a $50 dollar or more bottle of champagne.
I hope you have a wonderful New Years Eve!
Convenience: It's very convenient as long as you know how to open it!
How do you celebrate your New Years Eve? Do you have any special traditions?
