  1. Anna De Codorniu Brut Nature NV Cava

    Anna De Codorniu Brut Nature NV Cava

    £11.00

    £11.00

    Codorniu has an impressive 500 year history and is still, amazingly, a family-run enterprise. The Codorníus 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.

  2. 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.

  3. Besserat de Bellefon Blanc de Blancs NV Champagne Chardonnay

    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.

  4. Besserat de Bellefon Cuvée NV Champagne France

    Besserat de Bellefon Cuvée NV Champagne

    Now £33.30

    Was £37.00

    £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!

  5. Bichot Pure Cremant de Bourgogne NV

    Bichot Pure Cremant de Bourgogne NV

    £19.00

    £19.00

    This Cremant Bourgogne is one of the best-bang-for-buck-badly-kept secrets in Britain. A Blanc de Blanc to imbibe when bewildered by bulked up bills or besotted by beautiful brilliance.

    Made by grand master wine makering booze boffins Bichot. Delicate blossom, bursting with minerality and bountiful mousse. Believe in bright bubbles without having to be bank rolled by the Bahamas.

  6. 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...

  7. 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.*

    *We should probably issue a statutory reminder to enjoy your bottle of Bolly responsibly...

  8. Canard-Duchêne Authentic Brut NV Champagne - 37.5CL - HALF BOTTLE

    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.

  9. 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.

  10. Canard-Duchêne Authentic Brut NV Champagne

    Canard-Duchêne Authentic Brut NV Champagne - Magnum

    £55.00

    £55.00

    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.

  11. Cava Condesa Blanca Brut NV Sparkling Wine

    Cava Condesa Blanca Brut NV

    £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...

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

    Château de l'Aulée Crémant de Loire 'Cuvée Jeanne d'Arc' NV

    £13.50

    £13.50

    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.

  13. Champagne Drappier Millésimé Exception France

    Champagne Drappier Millésimé Exception 2012

    £35.00

    £35.00

    You know when you find something in the sale that fits you like a glove, is marvellously flattering and a total bargain? Well, this is the Champagne equivalent: marvellously scrumptious, unexpectedly striking and at a totally brilliant price.

    Like biting into a freshly baked cinnamon and raisin bun, but with more savoury, spicy notes and a clean acidity that makes it refreshing as well as warmly comforting. Needless to say, it's been a firm staff favourite for quite a wee while.

  14. Champagne Drappier Quattuor Non Vintage

    Champagne Drappier Quattuor NV 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.

  15. Champagne Tarlant Brut Nature Zero NV

    Champagne Tarlant Brut Nature Zero NV

    £37.00

    £37.00

    This is the Champagne that delivers 0% sugar and 100% flavour, baby! Made in the same way as Tarlant's Reserve Brut but without the sweet 'dosage' added after fermentation, what you experience here is pure, candid (but not candied...) fruit. Mandarin, lemon rind and beeswax are served up in exhilarating simplicity that leaves you wondering what all the fuss is about sugar anyway...

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

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

    £14.75

    £14.75

    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!

  17. 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!

  18. 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.

  19. Gusbourne Estate Brut Reserve

    Gusbourne Estate Brut Reserve 2013

    £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.

  20. H Blin 2006 Vintage Champagne

    H. Blin 2006 Millesime Vintage Champagne

    £37.00

    £37.00

    ***Silver at the IWC 2015***

    When Champagne gets this good, it's time to ask not what your Champagne can do for you, but what you can do for your Champagne. How best can you set off its hazelnut, lemon and fig charms? How might you complement its subtle, diffuse mousse?

    What canapés might you serve with it and to whom should you serve it to? These are big questions, and this is a big Champagne. In fact, the only thing that isn't big about it is the price.

  21. H.Blin Brut

    H. Blin Brut NV Champagne

    £28.00

    £28.00

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

    This Champagne could not be more popular if it was a genius on a University Challenge team in need of a point-boost to see them through the final furlong. Our staff love it, you love it, we love it… oh, wait, have we said that?

    Mellow, rounded, sumptuous, biscuity, balanced, lemony and complex style of Champagne, this one just doesn’t have any down sides, and that includes the price. It exemplifies the reason Oddbins champions small Champagne houses and, basically, makes us smile.

  22. Heidsieck Monopole Gold Top 2005 Vintage Champagne

    Heidsieck Monopole Gold Top 2005 Vintage Champagne

    £35.00

    £35.00

    We'll get onto the stuff inside the bottle in a minute but, first, how cool is the bottle? If you are having a dinner party with some fancy pants people or, alternatively, someone whom you fancy the pants off, you can't deny the ridiculous glamour of having a Champagne on the table in shiny gold packaging.

    Anyway, once you've opened it, you can expect a rollicking good ride of toasted hazelnuts, brioche and Braeburn apples. Yum.

  23. Heidsieck Monopole Silver Top Brut NV Champagne

    Heidsieck Monopole Silver Top Brut NV Champagne

    £35.00

    £35.00

    Silver. One of the human race's most cherished precious metals. There's something entrancing about its cool colour and subdued glamour that makes us want to adorn ourselves with it, eat from it and tell the time by it.

    In this case, marvelously, you can also drink it. And instead of being noxious and metallic, it's actually a supremely well balanced, fresh Champagne, laden with flavours of orchard fruits and freshly sliced vanilla pods.

  24. Jansz Sparkling Wine

    Jansz Brut NV Sparkling Wine

    £17.50

    £17.50

    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.

  25. Lanson Black Label Champagne NV

    Lanson Black Label NV Champagne

    £35.00

    £35.00

    Do not be fooled by the Maltese Cross and the black uniform that Lanson wears, it is not a member of the St John Ambulance. It can't patch up minor cuts and grazes, it doesn't know what the acronym DRAB stands for and it's ineffective at employing the recovery position.

    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.

  26. Laurent-Perrier Demi-Sec

    Laurent-Perrier Demi-Sec NV Champagne

    £43.00

    £43.00

    Nicknames are funny things. They generally have some kernel of truth that inspired them, such as Alex "Hurricane" Higgins, Richard "Tricky Dick" Nixon and, of course, David "Golden Balls" Beckham.

    So the fact that Laurent-Perrier's Demi-Sec was fondly called "Excellent" in the 19th century is nothing short of a glowing review of this curiously sweet, delicately toasty, expressively fruity little number.

    We wonder what the kernel of truth was behind Tim Henman's nickname, 'Tiger Tim'... The mind boggles.

  27. 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!

  28. Luis Pato Maria Gomes Metodo Antigo NV White Wine

    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?

  29. Möet & Chandon Brut Impérial NV

    Möet & Chandon Brut Impérial NV Champagne

    £39.00

    £39.00

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

    Moët & Chandon: probably the most famous and instantly recognisable name in the wine world. Freddie Mercury told us that the Killer Queen was “well versed in etiquette” and “extraordinarily nice” and she kept her Moët & Chandon in a pretty cabinet.

    With its deep peach, apple, brioche, toasted nut and vanilla flavours, we prefer to keep ours in the fridge at all times so that we can open some at the drop a hat for even the tiniest of celebrations. Where do you keep yours?

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

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

    Now £22.00

    Was £24.00

    £22.00

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

    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,...Moet 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.

  31. 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.

  32. Philippe Guidon Brut NV Champagne

    Philippe Guidon Brut NV Champagne

    £22.00

    £22.00

    ***Commended at the International Wine Challenge 2015***

    Of all the lesser-known, under-heralded Champagnes this is the one that stands out by a mile for value for money - receiving a steady stream of compliments. Such unanimous approval has got to mean something, and that something is a standard of winemaking that would not disgrace one of the big names in Champagne.

    This is most certainly on the dry end; understated, crisp and classic. When the occasion calls for Champagne but you've already spent all your cash on the tickets, turn to Guidon!

  33. Pierre Gimonnet et Fils Cuis Premier Cru Brut NV Champagne - Magnum

    Pierre Gimonnet et Fils Cuis Premier Cru Brut NV Champagne - Magnum

    £70.00

    £70.00

    Need a quick break from the office/hovering/choosing your shoes? How about a quick game of true or false? 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.

  34. Pol Roger Blanc de Blancs 2009 vintage champagne

    Pol Roger Blanc de Blancs 2009 Vintage Champagne

    £89.00

    £89.00

    The Blanc de Blancs is a speciality of the house, made from 100% Chardonnay sourced from Grand Cru vineyards, solely in the Côte des Blancs. The Blanc de Blancs, as with all the other Pol Roger wines, undergoes the traditional hand remuage (the turning of the bottles).

  35. Pol Roger Brut Réserve NV

    Pol Roger Brut Réserve NV Champagne

    £43.00

    £43.00

    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.

  36. Pol Roger Brut Réserve NV Champagne - Magnum

    Pol Roger Brut Réserve NV Champagne - Magnum

    Now £85.00

    £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.

  37. Polloni Spumante Prosecco Wine

    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.

  38. Prosecco Ca'Rosa Sparkling Wine

    Prosecco Ca'Rosa

    £11.00

    £11.00

    A fabulously fun and fruity off-dry number, this classic Italian fizz has become adored by Latin lovers for its soft mousse, or bubbles. It offers a delightfully fruity nose, followed by flavours of apricot and soft peach, with a refreshing yet gloriously flavourful finish.

    Less 'flinty' than cava or many Champagnes, this makes for a gorgeous celebratory tipple or aperitif in its own right.

  39. 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.

  40. Renaixença Cava Brut NV

    Renaixença Cava Brut NV

    £12.00

    £12.00

    We love onomatopoeic words. Zip. Shuffle. Whoosh! They do more than convey meaning, they bring words to life. So saying, we reckon 'Renaixença' is pretty onomatopoeic, which is handy when writing a tasting note...

    Said with a rolled 'r', the 'Ren' is like this Cava's gently playful fizz; the 'ai' is like the subtly creamy notes; the 'xença' (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!

  41. Roederer Estate Quartet NV

    Roederer Estate Quartet NV

    £26.00

    £26.00

    To wine geeks, Roederer is best known for the sheer quality of their fizz, but to the world at large, they're probably better known for the sheer (uninvited) bling of their top of the range Cristal. So when they head for California, we might expect their vineyards to be in Beverley Hills and their price tags to be strictly A list. 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.

  42. Saint Clair Vicar's Choice Sauvignon Blanc Bubbles 2016

    Saint Clair Vicar's Choice Sauvignon Blanc Bubbles 2016

    £15.00

    £15.00

    Only rare souls reach such states of grace they are canonized as saints, displaying sacrifice and patience inconceivable to normal folk. Imagine, for example, sitting before a perfectly chilled Kiwi Sauvignon Blanc. Condensation beading the glass. You can taste it, right? Your mouth is watering...

    Now! Imagine that was sparkling. Tiny beads hustling through bright liquid...

    Clair apparently lasted the better end of twenty (yes, two zero) minutes at the Vicar's tea party before she succumbed and downed a glass in a oner. For that barely credible act of restraint, she is eternally beatified.

  43. Settecento33 Spumante Brut NV

    Settecento33 Spumante Brut NV

    £10.00

    Ah! The 70s. When men were men, and moustaches were moustaches. Or faces were properly shaved. None of this modern, faddish pognophilia. Poncey trimmed face mats everywhere you look. No wonder women couldn't resist, back then. Even if the sheer manliness wasn't enough to bowl them over, there was also Brut 33.

    Henry Cooper, Kevin Keegan, Barry Sheen... the list goes on. Princes among men, who splashed themselves with the famous fragrance. It's in homage to those times this wine is made. You're welcome to douse yourself in it, of course, but we recommend sipping it from a flute. We promise it won't make you look any less manly. A seductive, long-lingering bubbly that's as irresistible as you will be.

    £40.00

    The Taittinger house style is crisp and elegant, with a creamy richness that's emphasised in the 2009 vintage with its 50/50 blend of Chardonnay and Pinot Noir, and selective ageing. The 2009 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.

  45. Taittinger Brut NV Champagne

    £39.00

    £39.00

    Classic Champagne. And a no-risk, fail-safe guarantee of good order. Taittinger is one of the thoroughbreds and might as well carry the torch for the impeccably high standards of the region's winemaking.

    This is a celebratory Champagne par-excellence, it would equally make the most acceptable of offerings to mark just about any occasion. This, as you'd expect is dry, elegant, fresh with an insistently lively effervescence.

  46. Torre Oria Cava Reserva NV

    Torre Oria Cava Reserva NV

    £10.50

    £10.50

    This top selling fizz is the more rounded of our Cavas and, is not quite as dry-seeming as the others in the range. This will work well in your favour if you're needing an effervescent tipple for any gathering, get-together or soiree.

    The Reserva is a more mellow and rounded sparkler but its insistent fizz and accomplished mousse will have your guests queuing for second helpings and ensure nothing goes to waste at the end of the evening.

    Cher wins the hearts of people everywhere and manages to make it look effortless whilst doing it. Iconic, stylish.

    No, we're not talking about THE Cher. Although, technically we are. Cher, a department in Centre-Val de Loire, is named after 'Le Cher', a river that runs off the River Loire. And it happens to be the home of Vignoble Dinocheau, the makers of this delicate sparkling white wine. With fine bubbles running throughout and a fresh and fruity palate, you'll find yourself in A Different Kind of Love with this cuvee.

    Veuve Clicquot Brut Yellow Label NV Champagne

    Now £35.00

    In the same way that, in the natural world, many animals are drawn to the mate with the most colourful foliage/colouring/nail varnish, as it is a sign of healthiness and virility, people are drawn to Veuve Cliquot and its distinctive orange label.

    Now, whilst we're not saying Veuve makes you virile (though that is a catchy line), we are saying that the label correctly signifies the brilliance within: rich yet dry, mousse-y yet elegant, yeasty yet citrusy, it's one healthy animal.
