  1. Bollinger Special Cuvee NV Champagne

    Bollinger Special Cuvée NV Champagne

    Now £37.00

    Was £47.00

    £37.00

    "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...

  2. Bollinger Special Cuvee NV Champagne - Magnum

    Bollinger Special Cuvée NV Champagne - Magnum

    Now £92.00

    Was £95.00

    £92.00

    They say great things come in small packages. We beg to differ. This magnum sized bottle, for example, contains a liquid so toasty, rounded and complex a standard size simply wouldn't be enough!

    "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." Wise words said by Lilly Bollinger, the great granddaughter-in-law of House of Bollinger founder Jacques Joseph, and head of the family firm from 1941-77.*

  3. Canard-Duchêne Authentic Brut NV Champagne

    Canard-Duchêne Authentic Brut NV Champagne

    Now £20.00

    Was £29.00

    £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.

  4. Canard-Duchene Rose NV

    Canard-Duchêne Rosé NV Champagne

    Now £25.00

    Was £30.00

    £25.00

    As with many of the best things in life, Canard-Duchêne began with love. It was love that drew barrel maker Victor Canard, and wine grower Leonie Duchêne together, way back in the 1800s and it was their shared love of Champagne that inspired them to their own House in the Montagne de Reims National Park in 1868. With the elegance and finesse typical of the House, this rosé is charmingly fresh, bursting with vibrant pomegranate and strawberry flavours. Merci amour.

  5. Champagne Ayala Blanc de Blancs 2008 Vintage Chardonnay

    Champagne Ayala Blanc de Blancs 2008 Vintage Champagne

    Now £48.00

    Was £55.00

    £48.00

    2008 was a mixed year in Europe. The Bank of England was forced to bail out Northern Rock, marking the start of a few monetary 'issues'; Lily Allen introduced acerbic wit into an otherwise predictable pop chart; and the busy bees at Champagne Ayala produced the gorgeous Blanc de Blancs Champagne you see before you. With laser-precision fruit and low 'dosage' (added sugar solution), even after six years ageing in Ayala's cellars, it maintains the Chardonnay grape's lemon freshness, spring blossom and beautiful levity.

  6. Champagne Ayala Brut Majeur NV Champagne

    Champagne Ayala Brut Majeur NV

    Now £25.00

    Was £30.00

    £25.00

    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.

  7. Cremant Extra-Brut De Limoux Delafont Millesime 2013

    Crémant Extra-Brut De Limoux Delafont 2013

    Now £20.00

    Was £23.00

    £20.00

    It's well known the French were great pioneers of "human-carrying flight technology". However, it's less well known that the first hot air balloon, launched in 1783, carried a sheep, a duck and a rooster. And even less well known that while others experimented with hot air, Samuel Delafont investigated CO2 gas.

    He was convinced the way to reach the sky was to direct bubbles from fermented grape juice into a silk balloon, thereby inflating it enough to lift from the ground. He studied tirelessly, his workshop infused with scents of flowers and citrus, producing effervescing vats brimming with energy and finesse. But it just wouldn't quite work. Happily, taking a generous draught of the liquid had the surrogate effect of lifting the spirit and letting the mind soar. His work wasn't wasted after all!

  8. Laurent-Perrier Cuvée Rosé Brut NV with Box

    Laurent-Perrier Cuvée Rosé Brut NV Champagne

    Now £49.00

    Was £62.00

    £49.00

    ***Bronze at the International Wine Challenge 2015***

    Laurent-Perrier Rosé is not so much a Champagne as an adored institution. The delightfully squat, curvaceous bottle has something to do with its charm, admittedly, but it is, of course, the juice inside that has led to such acclaim.

    Made with 100% Pinot Noir, Laurent-Perrier Rosé has a soft, dreamy texture and a ripe, almost baked strawberry and a vanilla-laced cream that are make this libation quite, quite magical. It’s not sweet though – oh no – this is beautiful Brut is sweet enough…

  9. Laurent-Perrier La Cuvee NV Champagne

    Laurent-Perrier La Cuvée NV

    Now £28.00

    Was £43.00

    £28.00

    A casual glance down the list of prominent Champagne names will, before long, reveal Laurent-Perrier as one of the leading lights. With its impeccable credentials, Laurent-Perrier is an instantly recognisable byword for quality and its non-vintage expression is testament to that.

    La Cuvée is Laurent-Perrier's brand new signature Champagne, replacing the Brut NV. It is pale gold in colour with a steady stream of fine bubbles. The nose has delicate aromas of citrus fruits, underpinned by hints of white flowers. A perfect balance between freshness and finesse, the palate is full-bodied, complex and creamy, displaying great length on the finish.

  10. Louis Roederer Brut Premier NV

    Louis Roederer Brut Premier NV Champagne

    Now £33.00

    Was £43.00

    £33.00

    Could this Champagne house be the king of all Champagne? It's a good bet, and you won't get better odds on many other candidates. Roederer certainly have the pedigree and the reputation. After all, it is they who are responsible for making a certain something called Cristal, if you've heard of that one. The one we have here however, is their standard, and what a standard it is too. Dry, delicate with a yeasty depth to it, this is class in a glass!

  11. Möet & Chandon Brut Impérial NV - Magnum

    Möet & Chandon Brut Impérial NV - Magnum

    Now £77.00

    Was £82.00

    £77.00

    The ultimate groupies' Champagne, one can imagine this being enjoyed and passed around between members of a larger circle of friends, with lots of conversation of the slightly louder variety. Made for the close-at-hand ice bucket,...in the back of a limousine, would be perfect,...on the way to a nightclub, even better,...on a Saturday night, better still again,...Möet is likely to be on hand for many such scenarios as that's the Champagne it is. Fun, fresh, lively with good depth and a nice vanilla note to finish.

  12. Moet & Chandon Brut Imperial NV Champagne - 37.5CL

    Möet & Chandon Brut Impérial NV Champagne - Half Bottle - 375ml

  13. MM Cava Reserva de Familia 2012 Spanish Sparkling Wine

    MM Gran Reserva Vintage Brut Nature Cava 2012

    Now £13.50

    Was £15.00

    £13.50

    Bringing a descendant into the world is a great responsibility. Particularly when they'll have a name to live up to. The pressure was really on the Marqués then, when he announced he'd found a bride, and married shortly after. The court waited with baited breath.

    Not taking any chances, he asked one of his advisors how to ensure his offspring would be of the right calibre. The advice: to drink a wine with the character he'd want in his child, before retiring to bed each night. In the event he was blessed with a son, the Marqués commissioned a cava laced with dry humour and sharpness of wit. He was slightly concerned about the hint of nuts, but then it was compelling. Nobody wants to be boring, after all.

  14. MM Cava Rosé Reserva de la Famlia 2013

    MM Reserva Vintage Brut Rosé Cava 2013

    Now £11.00

    Was £12.50

    £11.00

    The Marqués was more than aware any child he sired would have to live up to his name. He also understood that was quite a burden. If there was something he could do to determine the character of a yet-to-be child, then he should do it.

    The advice was to drink a wine with the character he'd want in his child, before retiring to bed each night. In the event he was blessed with a daughter, the Marqués commissioned a rose cava. Delicate and light, but shot through with a persistent energy and fizz. A better balance he couldn't imagine.

  15. Pol Roger Brut Réserve NV Champagne - Magnum

    Pol Roger Brut Réserve NV Champagne - Magnum

    Now £85.00

    Was £89.00

    £85.00

    Good old Pol Roger! The noblest of the Champagne houses and one of the region's elder statesmen. The consistent class and finesse of this rich and complex standard bearer makes it very much the brand of choice for those in the know.

    Were you to present this bottle to discerning company: say a wine expert, an aristocrat, or the dear old Brigadier General, you're bound to be accepted as an esteemed guest. If not you should leave immediately, taking the bottle with you.

  16. Prosecco San Vito NV Sparkling Wine

    Prosecco San Vito NV

    Now £9.50

    Was £10.00

    £9.50

    Everybody needs good neighbours. Well, Prosecco San Vito has 2,300 across a swathe of the massive Prosecco DOC in North-Eastern Italy. The ViVo Co-operative hands an umbrella to over 2,300 growers in the vicinity, covering 3,600 hectares (think 25 Hyde Parks) and providing eight wineries in the area to cover members' grape drop-off, collection and winemaking requirements.

    It also offers a business structure to give all of these small winemakers access to the domestic and foreign markets. So much for the cup of sugar, then. Still, you can always pop round with a bottle of this delightful, floral, citrussy fizz and have a chinwag about that weird bloke from three hectares down the road!

  17. Prosecco Treviso Follador Extra Dry

    Prosecco Treviso Follador Extra Dry

    Now £12.50

    Was £15.00

    £12.50

    Old as the hills, the Follador winery. Giovanni Follador first blushingly received the Wine Quality Award from the 'Doge', or Duke, of Venice way back in 1769 and started a rather big, and rather tasty ball rolling.

    His great, great, (great?) grandson, Gianfranco, is the one keeping the ball rolling today and boy does he know how to handle this ball.

    Alright we'll drop the ball metaphor... this Prosecco has a charmingly fine, delicate mousse, with pure, subtle and fresh flavours of acacia, green apple and jasmine.

  18. Taittinger Rosé Non Vintage Champagne

    Taittinger Rosé NV Champagne

    Now £39.00

    Was £49.00

    £39.00

    Taittinger's Rosé is a deep, ruby tinted pink. It's almost exactly the colour of quince jelly - and in the same way the quince jelly perfectly balances sweet, sharp and savoury, this Champagne, with its fine bubbles and persistent mousse, its aromas of raspberry and blackcurrant, is a perfect blend of mature gravity and youthful joie de vivre. It's a pink fizz for grown ups who've not forgotten how to play.
