Buy Louis Roederer Brut Champagne




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.

  1. Antoine Remy Champagne Non Vintage AOC

    Antoine Remy NV Champagne

    £27.00

    £27.00

    This boutique and thoroughly modern Champagne is proof that it’s possible to invest in the future and still have fun now. Bernard Remy bought his first vineyard in 1968; it has gradually grown to about the size of ten football pitches and has been passed on to his son Rudy.

    Rudy makes this new zippy, limey and floral Champagne exclusively for Oddbins under his son’s name because he sees this wine as their future and Antoine as the heir to the throne. So with each sip you enjoy you will be investing in little Antoine’s future.

    Besserat de Bellefon Blanc de Blancs NV Champagne

    £42.00

    £42.00

    Rodent racing was an incredibly popular spectacle in Bellefontaine, Ohio. However, a sad day befell the town in 1843, when a Frenchman named Edmond rode into town.

    With a Gallic flourish he bet his life’s savings on a three-legged albino rat called Roger. Quite to the locals’ dismay, the rank outsider romped home and Edmond left the town bankrupt. Returning to France, he set up a Champagne house with his winnings, dedicated to the Best Rat of Bellefontaine.

    The exquisite Besserat de Bellefon Blanc de Blancs is a celebration of Roger’s snow white fur and finesse. Some of this is not true.

    £33.30

    The story goes that in 1930 the director of the then famous Paris restaurant 'la Samaritaine de Luxe' challenged Victor Besserat to produce a champagne that could be drunk throughout a meal. Victor created his Cuvée des Moines, and duly won the bet, and the contract.

    Crisp, delicate and fine bubbled but with real character, complexity and subtle depths of flavour, this is a champagne that not only stands up to food, but will step up to the mark for any fizz related challenge you care to throw at it. Bring it on!

    £35.00

    There's an intriguing golden, almost amber hue to the delicate pink of this rose fizz, reminiscent of an alpine sunset. Together with a hint of wild strawberries on the nose, it suggests a pink fizz that's just a little out of the ordinary, something more of the bold and reckless kind of romantic than the luv hearts and puppy dogs kind. Something a little bit wild, a little bit fresh, but kinda sweet at heart…

    "I drink it when I'm happy and when I'm sad. Sometimes I drink it when I'm alone. When I have company I consider it obligatory. I trifle with it if I'm not hungry and drink it when I am. Otherwise, I never touch it-unless I'm thirsty." So said Lilly Bollinger, the great granddaughter-in-law of House of Bollinger founder Jacques Joseph, and head of the (still now, as then) family firm from 1941-77.

    We haven't much to add to that, beyond saying that its toasty, rounded complex palate is beyond compare. Oh and we should probably issue a statutory reminder to enjoy your Bolly responsibly…

    Canard-Duchêne Authentic Brut NV - Half Bottle 375ml

    £15.00

    £15.00

    Our French is rudimentary, but we think that Canard-Duchêne roughly translates as “duck of oak”. And we believe this to be a reference to how this elegant Champagne conquered the UK.

    The people of Ludes, near Reims, deposited an enormous wooden Trojan-duck at customs in Folkestone. The duck was filled to the brim with Champagne bottles, and when local customs officers wheeled it in, the trap door sprung open and bottles flew out, making their way up the M20 towards London.

    The rest is history. However, our understanding may not be historically factual.

    £20.00

    Our French is simple, however we feel that Canard-Duchêne generally interprets as "duck of oak". Furthermore, we trust this to be a reference to how this exquisite Champagne vanquished the UK. The general population of Ludes, close Reims, kept a huge wooden Trojan-duck at traditions in Folkestone. The duck was filled to the overflow with Champagne bottles, and when neighborhood traditions officers wheeled it in, the trap entryway sprung open and jugs flew out, advancing up the M20 towards London. The rest is history. In any case, our comprehension may not be truly genuine.

    £31.50

    We say this with nothing short of affection, but the folk in Champagne don’t ‘alf over egg things sometimes. This Champagne’s name translates as “The Big Charles VII Blend, The Victorious” and comes from the modestly titled “Best Tasting Champagne”, Canard-Duchêne.

    But they have every right to be proud – it’s ridiculously tasty. Made with 20% ‘reserve’ – i.e. vintage wine, it has impressive depth, with stone fruit, minerals and toastier notes. Oh, and the finest looking bottle we've seen in a long time.

    Like Cole Porter, Ira Gershwin and Duke Ellington, Champagne Ayala isn’t such a household name these days but, dust off the family photo album and you’ll find that it was all the rage in 1920s England. In fact it’s questionable that the twenties would have roared at all without Ayala, as it was so popular it even became the official supplier to the royal courts of England. Us Brits adored its drier House style and it remains known today throughout the world for its fresh and elegant wines, like Brut Majeur, which combines delicate minerality with precision of fruit and a charmingly long finish.

    The warming cinnamon and nutmeg spice, coupled up with the vibrant energy of the red cherries, rose petals and wild strawberries make this rosé Champagne as close to a Moroccan rose garden at dusk, as it’s possible to get.

    Just add a few wisps of shisha smoke, drifting over from the corner, where some elderly gentlemen ponder over a leisurely of chess, and you’ve pretty much conjured the tastes going on in this mesmeric, gentle and perfumed Champagne.

    £52.00

    £52.00

    It is all we can do not to squeal with excitement and thump the desk as we write our thoughts on this totally unique Champagne.

    A family ‘grower’ House (i.e. they make wine from their own grapes), Drappier have decided to depart from the classic Champagne varieties of Pinot Noir, Pinot Meunier and Chardonnay and explore the forgotten, historic varieties of Arbanne, Petit Meslier and Blanc Vrai. Using 25% each of these varieties, with the last 25% being Chardonnay, Drappier have created a fine and rare Champagne.

    It is magically elegant, with fresh aromas of white grapes and lemon peel evolving into honeyed apples and figs. A chiselled, mineral finish really puts the feather in Quattuor’s cap. You need this Champagne in your life.

    Family is a good thing. If you need convincing, just tune into EastEnders – Phil Mitchell often reminds people of the importance of family. The Tarlants, in Champagne, also value family, but don’t have menacing undertones.

    What they do have, however, is huge respect for the 11 generations of winemakers before them and for the land tended by them since 1687.

    They run their vineyards sustainably and vinify plots separately, adding only a small dosage, which allows the expression of the grapes to shine through. We think Phil would approve.

    Oh, that Queen Victoria? Well, yes, she was a model of composition on the whole, helped perhaps by this wonderfully aromatic fizz which combines the fresh elegance of Chardonnay with the body and richness of Pinot Noir.

    Since 1921, Dom Pérignon has more or less defined the term ‘vintage Champagne’, not least because they only make vintage Champagne. It is also because DP is only produced in years where the grape harvest will deliver something outstanding, which means that only roughly half of the past 100 or so vintages have been declared.

    No wonder it’s been a favourite of Marilyn Monroe, James Bond and countless other figures of repute… real and fictional.

    Krug Rosé is gorgeously delicate with aromas of puff pastry and a complex palate of citrus and spice with a touch of honey, and it becomes an occasion in itself, like a surprise visit from a missed and much-loved friend.

    So bring the party to the Krug, celebrate thirteen weeks since your first date, or your 3.7th wedding anniversary, or the birth of somebody else's child, and maybe call that friend over. You won't regret it.

    However, what this Champagne lacks in basic First Aid knowledge, it more than makes up for in consistency, reputation and quality. Lanson with it's fresh 'non-malolactic' style, puts a smile on any face, but we don’t recommend administering it at the scene of an accident.

    A further three years ageing over lees develops further depth and adds toasty, yeasty notes before we get to pop the cork. Salmon-tinted, with very fine bubbles, this is a rich and rounded pink fizz, for the serious minded hedonists among us…

Pierre Gimonnet is the distant French cousin of Jiminy Cricket, twice removed on their mother’s side? True you say? Uh-oh, I’m afraid it’s back to work. But for those that said false, it’s high-fives all round. In fact, why not treat yourself to a bottle of said Frenchman’s Cuis Premier Cru NV. It’s an exquisitely pure, crisp Champagne from a ‘Grower Champagne’ (they grow the grapes and make the wine themselves) with a slight underlining minerality and a marvellous nutty finish. It would be a shame not to; after all, you deserve it.

  41. Pierre Gimonnet et Fils Fleuron Premier Cru Champagne 2009

    Often described as artisanal winemaking, Grower Champagnes are made by independent Champagne Houses from grapes that they grow in their own vineyards. This all-encompassing method of Champagne-making allows the winemaker to truly understand the relationship between the grape and the terroir.

    Pierre Gimonnet et Fils only grow Chardonnay in their three vineyards and in this vintage Champagne you can taste the character of all three of; a rich full palate gives way to flavours of peach and fresh green apples which finishes with a zip of bright acidity.

    To bring together all of these flavours in harmony takes real skill and, luckily, this is something that the Gimmonet team have in abundance.

  42. Pol Roger 2006 Vintage Champagne

    Pol Roger 2006 Vintage Champagne

    £63.00

    £63.00

    The sense of triumph and exhilaration that the fine folk at Pol Roger must have felt when they released their epically tasty 2004 must surely have been tainted by the thought of how on earth to follow it. But any worries, we imagine, would have been instantly allayed when they sampled the 2006: it is simply lovely.

    It is intense yet delicate, with balanced notes of stone fruit, acacia honey and citrus underpinned by a fine thread of acidity. It has excellent freshness and persistence and its tight structure is showing beautifully right now.

  45. Pol Roger Cuvé Sir Winston Churchill 2004
    ‘My tastes are simple. I am easily satisfied with the best!’ is one of the many erudite witticisms for Sir Winston Churchill is loved. It also sums up the spirit of the Cuvée created in his honour, as Pol Roger’s Cellar Master explains: ‘Making Churchill is relatively easy; one takes the best grapes from the best Grand Cru vineyards in the best years… then, only the best wine is used for the Churchill blend’. Unsurprisingly, the result is a Champagne of heroic stature: elegant, full-flavoured and intense, with pitch-perfect, citrus-y acidity that balances the whole, this is, arguably, the best.

    Although apparently back into vogue, white stilettos still have a dodgy reputation. Police cars are turning silver because the white ones have a lower resale value. White tuxedos smack of trying too hard and can transform red wine into a perilous danger. And in the Bavarian fairy tale, Snow White messes around seven unwitting short fellows before running off with the tall guy. White, just isn't that classy is it?

    Unless of course it's the Ruinart Blanc de Blancs: an illustrious Champagne made from only the finest white grapes, that spills over with citrus, honeysuckle, apricot and almond notes.

    Ruinart is not a call to write on a Rothko, paint over a Banksy or put a traffic cone on a statue; it’s the oldest Champagne house. Established in 1729, the first delivery of “wine with bubbles” left the house in January 1730. More than 280 years later, this squat little bottle, inspired by the 18th Century bottles, has become one of the most recognisable and sought after sparkling wines in the world. The Ruinart Rosé is a real accomplishment: smooth as silk and crisp as morning dew, with red berries, fresh flowers and gentle spices.

    The Taittinger house style is crisp and elegant, with a creamy richness that's emphasised in the 2008 vintage with its 50/50 blend of Chardonnay and Pinot Noir, and selective ageing. The 2008 is just coming into its own now - still young and fresh, with clean, bright fruit flavours balanced by the nutty, toasty notes coming through - and will continue to develop and mature for a good decade, and more.
