Sparkling Wine

Champagne Lifestyle on a Lemonade Budget




There is clearly one big boy on the block when it comes to fizz and that’s Champagne. Now, although he is a nice big boy, producing some of the most memorable, awe-inspiring sparkling wine on the planet, there is a whole world of fizz out there, waiting to be explored. Whether it’s for celebrating getting engaged, getting a 1:1, or just getting through Monday, there is a fizz for you here at Oddbins.

Sparkling wine comes in many different guises - it can range from semi-seco (sweet) to Brut Nature (bone-dry) - and is made in an almighty array of countries. Italy has Prosecco which is light and fruity, while Spain has Cava which is their answer to Champagne and is super food-friendly. Even Tasmania boasts a delicious fizz that we think could only have been made with divine help – Jansz.

Another of our favourites is Portuguese sparkling. The Pato family – Luis and his daughter Filipa – each hold their own when it comes to still winemaking, but my oh my do they produce some cracking fizz too. Luis’ mousse-y, lemony, chalky Metodo Antigo should have a licence to thrill, IMHO. One, two three… go!

  1. Anna De Codorníu Brut Nature NV Cava

    Anna De Codorníu Brut Nature NV Cava

    £11.00

    £11.00

    Codorníu has an impressive 500 year history and is still, amazingly, a family-run enterprise. The Codornius were the first Spaniards to use Champagne’s ‘traditional’ method of production, which ensures extraordinary quality, and also lobbied DO Cava to allow the use of Chardonnay and Pinot Noir.

    As such “Anna” was the first cava to be made using Chardonnay and there is something very Champagne-like about this premium cava. You’ll find bright aromas of tropical fruit and a soft well-balanced and refreshing palate, with elegant citrus notes and fine, persistent bubbles.

    If this is what history tastes like, then we’ll be, er, eating more history.

  3. Ca Rosa 'Pink' Spumante NV Rose Sparkling Wine

    Ca Rosa 'Pink' Spumante NV

    £11.00

    £11.00

    Pink isn’t just for girls, whoever started that idea clearly didn’t know what they were talking about. Take this deliciously light ‘Pink’ spumante from Ca Rosa for example. With floral and strawberry aromas on the nose and red berry flavours on the soft palate, the colour of this sparkling wine is the last thing you’ll be thinking about! Not to mention, it looks great in anybody's glass.

    Pink and sparkly never tasted so good.

    £8.50

    £8.50

    This bargain Cava offers proof that Spanish fizz at this price isn't just a cheap alternative to Champagne, but can be a fine, elegant and joyous wine in its own right.

    With crisp fresh apple and pear fruit flavours, backed up by toasty, nutty notes, and bubbles that go on, and on, and on some more, if you're catering an event with interminable toasts, and you want to be sure that your fizz isn't flat by the end of the speeches, then Condesa Blanca is the fizz for you. It's the Cava that keeps on giving…

  5. Château de l'Aulée Crémant de Loire 'Cuvée Jeanne d'Arc' Sparkling Wine

    Cuvée Jeanne d'Arc is named after the vineyard where the Chenin Blanc grapes are grown and where Ms Arc is said to have rested, en route to meet the King-to-be, Charles VII, at nearby Chinon.

    It is also made by the former winemaker of Champagne Houses including Bollinger. With a pedigree like that you’d be expecting something special and, by gum, you’ve got it.

    Jeanne d’Arc tastes like the freshly pressed juice of russet apples, with an exhilarating sherbet streak. Bet she never thought she’d hear that.

  6. Crémant de Bourgogne 'Blanc de Blancs' Cave de Lugny NV

    If you're one of those for whom the presentation value and the a-la-Francaise element of a Champagne are essential but like many of us can't dispense with the extra price premium, then this affordable Champagne-a-like might just get your favour. (This is far and away more amiable and drinkable on a Wednesday afternoon anyway).

    With the looks, both in bottle and out, once the party's in full swing, you really will be holding a glass of the real thing!

    Cremant Extra-Brut De Limoux Delafont 2013

    £23.00

    We are firm believers that it is good to treat yourself to a little spot of luxury from time to time. We also believe there's no better way to do it than with a glass (or two) of sumptuous bubbles!

    This dry, sparkling white wine from Maison S. Delafont is the perfect example of finesse, offering a complex and mineral palate with floral notes, citrus fruits and almonds. Luxurious might be an understatement...

  8. Filipa Pato '3B' Blanc de Blancs' 2013

    Filipa Pato '3B' Blanc de Blancs' 2013

    £15.00

    £15.00

    We feel a strong kinship with Filipa Pato. We imagine ourselves as having a kind of Bonnie and Clyde-type relationship, only without the outlaw element. Or the robberies. Or the shooting. Basically like a friendly, law-abiding Bonnie and Clyde. Why? Because she represents all that is fantastic about tiny-production and is a champion of the obscure and that is right up our street. This Blanc de Blancs (meaning that it’s a sparkler made from all white grape varieties) uses indigenous varieties Maria Gomes, Bical and Arinto and is bone dry, with a fragrant lemon fresh zing. With wines this good, there’s just no need for bank robberies.

    £17.00

    £17.00

    You have to be careful when you describe just how good this new Prosecco is. People will assume you're exaggerating. First, there's its alluring colour - in the glass a silvery-grey glint of precious stone.

    Then there's the taste: a hard-to-describe magical balance between dryness and the subtle fruit of late-picked Bramley apples. You'll see what we mean when you try it; not just Prosecco, this is super-charged-Prosecco.

    Gusbourne Estate Brut Reserve 2012

    £32.00

    £32.00

    The vines responsible for this distinguished, heavenly sparkling wine hail from across the water in Champagne but, boy, are they thriving in Kent.

    Yes the ‘Garden of England’, with its warm summers, tempered by the cooling North Sea breeze seems to agree very well indeed with these Pinot Noir, Chardonnay and Pinot Meunier cultivars, resulting in wines like this incredibly popular, lemony, nutty, toffee apple-esque corker. Channel hopping never tasted so good.

  11. Gusbourne Rosé Sparkling Wine

    Gusbourne Sparkling Rosé 2012

    £35.00

    £35.00

    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.

    If you turn up at most people’s houses with a bottle Grüner Veltliner, they’ll probably look excited and will say ‘Ooh, sounds exotic!!’ to which you’ll smoothly say ‘It’s Austrian darling. Not a very well-known grape variety. Oodles of zingy orchard fruit,’ and they will be suitably impressed.

    If you turn up with a limited-supply, sparkling Grüner Veltliner, they’ll look really excited and say ‘Oh, you shouldn’t have!’ to which you’ll say ‘Yah. It’s a limited supply sparkling Grüner Veltliner. Pretty rare. Delicious.’ You may want to tone down the nonchalance a little if you actually want to be let through the door.

    Jansz is like a Champagne house in a parallel universe, which enjoys the same cool, temperate weather, but where everyone is laid back in that idiosyncratically Australian way.

    They don't call their winemaking method champenoise, but Tasmanoise. And the best bit? The wine is out of this world, with flavours of lemon, honeysuckle and toasted hazelnuts, at a very real-worldly price.

    Jansz vineyard hand harvests seperately, keeping the fruit in individual batches. Each batch is then handled gently and fermented in select barrels.

    This vintage cuvee is a pale gold in colour, boasting scents of lemon curd, white flowers and fresh cream. Flavours of rose petals and candied lemon peel shine through on the palate, alongside roasted hazelnut and cashews showcasing its power and elegance.

    Loimer Sparkling Extra Brut NV

    £21.00

    £21.00

    When you think of sparkling wine grapes, you might automatically gravitate to Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier, the classic Champagne varietals. Grüner Veltliner and Zweigelt might not be the first grapes you'd think of, even though they make up 75% of this delicious fizz grown in Gumpoldskirchen in Austria. Which might not be the first place you'd think of either.

    Cultivated biodynamically - as you might not expect - it has apple and citrus flavours from the Grüner and rich, creamy brioche touches from the red grapes. And the other 25%? Pinot Noir, of course. What are we, weird or something?

    Luis Pato Maria Gomes Metodo Antigo NV

    £17.00

    £17.00

    This sparkler is a curious and wonderful thing. It is made using an ancient ‘Rural’ Method in which, unusually, the wine only undergoes fermentation once, using only naturally occurring sugars.

    If you are slightly bored and confused by this and care not for the methods used, let us tell you that it is made by Luis Pato, the Baron of the Bairrada and one of the most renowned producers in Portugal, who calls it his 'take on Prosecco'.

    If you’re now muttering ‘meh’ at your screen because you don’t give a monkeys about famous producers, let us simply say that it is an elegant and focused wine with generous mousse and aromas of white flowers and citrus. Does that do it?

    The rose has long stood as a significant symbol throughout English history. Dating back to the now named Wars of the Roses, the Tudor Rose represents a unity of the Houses of Lancaster and York, combining their red and white rose symbols. Today it continues to be the national flower of England, it is used as an emblem on many armed forces uniforms and also featured on the 20p coin from 1982 to 2008.

    Lyme Bay have encapsulated the truly English symbol within this Sparkling Brut Rosé wine. At their Devon based winery they bring together a small portion of red wine, combining it with their white cuvée base to create a harmonious and delicious Sparkling Rosé wine. It's strawberry and redcurrant flavours with rich honey and hints of brioche and almond are enough to get you on your feet belting out a rendition of the National Anthem with pride...

  20. MM Cava Reserva de Familia 2012 Spanish Sparkling Wine

    You might be mistaken to think that the ‘MM’ in the name of this Cava stands for ‘Marqués de Monistrol’ after the winery that crafts the superb sparkling. It refers instead to the words uttered upon the first tasting of the wine (or lack thereof!)

    A simple ‘mmmmm’.

    It is rare that a wine leaves its makers so incredibly speechless, but they’ve since managed to muster up a few words to describe just how delicious it is; small, persistent bubbles carry ripe apricot and vine peach aromas. Intense and fresh. On the palate, dried nuts, toasted bread and citrus...MM MM MMMMM

    Polloni Spumante

    £8.25

    £8.25

    Whilst James Bond drinks Dom Perignon 1946, Inspector Clouseau probably drinks Polloni Spumante. If we compare James Bond and Inspector Clouseau, it is true that we would trust James Bond way more than Inspector Clouseau when it comes to saving the world.

    Bond is classy, he gets all the girls and Bond is ""Bond, James Bond"". Clouseau tears his costume when he needs to unlock a door with a simple key, his wife cheats on him and Clouseau is just ""Inspector Clouseau"". But in the end, Clouseau manages to solve affairs and becomes the pet peeve of all criminals.

    The Polloni Spumante might not be as prestigious as Dom Perignon 1946, but in the end the result is the same and provides us with a different kind of pleasure.

    Carlo decided that for their anniversary this year he would buy his sweetheart something truly special. Having heard that age-old saying 'diamonds are a girls best friend' he set about finding the greatest, most sparkling diamond Italy had to offer; no price was too high nor effort too great. He searched far and wide but, try as he might, he simply could not find a jewel that would be good enough to present to his leading lady. He would have to think of something else.

    "If I cannot find a diamond for my love," he thought, "I will make one instead." And so began his journey in crafting a wine so sparkling and dazzling that it would seem as though it were glinting with a thousand of the precious stones. Not only did the wine look spectacular but it's crisp, refreshing palate of peach, apricot and pear flavours not only made it an instant success for his gift, but soon became the star of his range.

    And you'll never guess what he called it... "Quadri" (Diamonds!)

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!

    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.

    It was once believed the World was flat. Sail too far, and you'd fall off the side. But intrepid individuals have long been prepared to risk everything in the name of exploration. Particularly the Portuguese, during the Age of Discovery. What many don't know is they had a secret. And this made them more confident, striking into the unknown.

    In case the World was actually flat, the Portuguese developed a method of sending extra air into the sky, convinced this would create a bubble that would envelop the Earth and 'catch' them if they did sail too far. This air was delivered in the form of tiny bubbles, arising from fermented Alvarinho. They didn't need the back up, as it turned out. The only thing out of this world was the wine itself...

    Said with a rolled ‘r’, the ‘Ren’ is like this Cava’s gently playful fizz; the ‘ai’ is like the subtly creamy notes; the ‘xenҫa’ (pronounced ‘shensa’) is like the cool, clean rush of green fruit that whooshes over the palate like a cooling breeze in a Spanish orchard. Boom!

What a pleasing twist in this particular Hollywood tale to discover that not only does the quality of this sparkling blend of Chardonnay and Pinot Noir match the very best of champagne, but it’s a blockbuster fizz at a B-movie price.
