Sophie Baron Grande Reserve Brut Champagne

Sophie Baron Grande Reserve Brut Champagne

Here’s a solid Costco wine find for all you Champagne fans out there.  The discounted price until 11/21 is only $20.99, which is $6 off a regular price of $26.99.  That puts this right in the same territory as the $20 Kirkland Champagne that we love so much.

Online the retail price of this Sophie Baron bottle is around $34.99 so this is one you might want to stock up on at this very favorable discounted Costco price.

It is also a highly rated Champagne, pulling down ratings between 91-93 from most of the major wine critics. The blend is 30% Chardonnay, 60% Meunier and 10% Pinot Noir.

In the glass, the wine pours a medium gold with a hint of amber; gentle effervescence; flavors of citrus, green apple and pineapple with a little vanilla and almond; toasty finish, just pleasant all around.

This is a tasty Champagne and one that we will go 88 points on.  We still feel the Kirkland Champagne for $20 edges this one out a tad, but this is still a fun alternative to try. 

Plus, this is a great choice for holiday parties or gifts where you don’t want people to make judgements about bringing a Kirkland branded bottle.  Although if they knew wine they would know how good that Kirkland Champagne really is.

Overall, this Sophie Baron bottle is a nice value buy among French Champagne, which is something you don’t find all that often.

We picked up a bottle of Sophie Baron for $20 at our local Costco a couple of days ago and drank it last night. Very solid and tasted exactly as you described. Well worth it, especially at $20.

I'm a huge fan of the Costco champagne, this drinks a little different, so personal preferences may determine which one likes better.

Our go-to sparking for under $20 is Gruet Brut out of New Mexico, which we can get for $13 and which is a wonderful bubbly, especially for the price.
