Champagne



Champagne Laurent Perrier



Noel Coward reportedly said “Why do I drink Champagne for breakfast? Doesn’t everyone?”  We certainly do, and we think this is the best page on our website for the very reason that Champagne can be consumed morning, noon or night and it is always awesome...

Champagne is not only one of the most perfect drinks on the planet, but it is also probably one of the most perfect winemaking regions anywhere. We’re not talking about the weather, which can be a little bit too much like ours for our liking; we are talking about the symbiotic relationship of its producers.

The big brands have built up an incredible reputation and respect. This has made Champagne one of the most famous and emulated wines on Earth. With their enormous wealth, these big houses are able to protect and promote the Champagne brand overseas, support smaller producers by buying their grapes and innovate by playing with fermentation in oak, zero dosage (very dry) styles, organic viticulture and food matching. It has also allowed them to set up wineries around the world, for example Louis Roederer set up Roederer Estate in America and Jansz in Tasmania, although they are only involved in the former today.

The smaller producers, like Drappier, H Blin and Antoine Remy, supply grapes to the bigger houses, but also make incredible wines themselves. These smaller and lesser known outfits spend less on PR, advertising and celebrity endorsement, as a result their wines offer incredible value for money to those in the know.

There are many rumours about the future of Champagne, some of the most interesting that we’ve heard are that Demi-Sec is set for a comeback and some of the bigger houses are toying with ways of showing on the label how long a wine has been aged for in the bottle.

That’s all from us, all you have to do now is decide what’s for breakfast.

Mr Bond, the bubbles tickle my…Tchaikovsky!
