£35.00There'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…Pinot Menuier (40%), Chardonnay (30%), Pinot Noir (30%)3Light Full bodied2Dry Sweet
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.Pinot Noir (62%), Chardonnay (14%), Pinot Meunier (14%)Oak:5Light Full bodied2Dry Sweet
There's something inherently hedonistic about pink champagne, something inescapably self indulgent. And why not? What's wrong with a celebration of life for life itself? It only becomes vulgar when the only people who can afford it are bankers, oligarchs and Premier league footballers…
So three cheers for Philippe Guidon - with this beautifully crisp and fresh, fruity but elegant fizz, you can live for the moment without breaking the bank.Pinot Noir, Pinot Meunier, Chardonnay3Light Full bodied2Dry Sweet
Since 1921, Dom Pérignon has more or less defined the term ‘vintage Champagne’, mainly due to them only producing vintage Champagne. It is also because it is produced only in exceptional years where the grape harvest will provide something exceptional, which means that only approximately half of the previous 100 or so vintages have been declared.
No wonder it’s been a favourite of Marilyn Monroe, Claudia Schiffer and countless other figures of repute… real and fictitious. Bold, rich and beautifully resonant flavours of seductive red fruits, hints of citrus and lavish spicy notes, that go on and on, you, like Dom Pérignon, may just exclaim ‘come quickly – I am tasting the stars’!Pinot Noir (60%), Chardonnay (40%)Oak:5Light Full bodied2Dry Sweet
Appledore sounds like a realm from Lord of the Rings, populated by wizards, hobbits and dragons. But it’s not; it’s the sleepy home to Gusbourne Estate in rural Kent. However, this fizz tastes so good that you may be forgiven for thinking that sorcery has been involved in its production.
The vines were pinched from Champagne, but the result is very British. With a hue as delicate as an English rose, this is packed with gently spiced biscuits, shortcake, strawberries, cream, red apples and charm. Watch out for Gollum, this is exceedingly precious.Pinot Noir (40%), Chardonnay (30%), Pinot Meunier (30%)1Light Full bodied1Dry Sweet

A fiftieth birthday, a twentieth wedding anniversary, the birth of a child - all of these are landmark occasions which may beg the company of something extraordinary. Krug Champagnes will undoubtedly bring the requisite opulence to the occasion, but you don't have to wait until you're exhaustedly feeding a new born at 4am.
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.Pinot Noir (50%), Chardonnay (30%), Pinot Meunier (20%)Oak:3Light Full bodied2Dry Sweet
Pink Champagne? That's all a bit frivolous, isn't it? Well, yes - that's the point of it - but also, no, not necessarily. Lanson's Rose is a blend of 50-60 components including aged reserve stocks of wine, lending richness and complexity to the blend.
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…Chardonnay (32%), Pinot Noir, Pinot Meunier (15%)3Light Full bodied2Dry Sweet

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, LP 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…Pinot Noir (100%)5Light Full bodied2Dry Sweet
Like a ballerina spinning across the stage of a great theatre, at night, with the spotlight highlighting her pirouettes, plies and jumps, this really comes to life when its presented to a waiting audience, so is surely a good bet if you’re planning on doing some entertaining.
Just keep an eye on it, lest its vibrant red cherry, wild strawberry and elegant structure pirouette clean out of the glass.
£59.00Ruinart 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.Pinot Noir (55%), Chardonnay (45%)Oak:3Light Full bodied2Dry Sweet
£49.00Taittinger's Rose 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.Chardonnay (30%), Pinot Noir, Pinot Meunier3Light Full bodied2Dry Sweet
