Champagne Ayala



Noël Coward reportedly asked “Why do I drink Champagne for breakfast? Doesn’t everyone?” Well, maybe not every morning, Noël, but we certainly like it very much indeed. Who wouldn’t? Champagne is not only one of the most perfect drinks on the planet, but it is also probably one of the most perfect wine-making 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.


With their consistent style, availability and prestige, big Champagne Houses such as Laurent-Perrier and Pol Roger (who are family-owned), have built up Champagne’s incredible reputation and this has made it one of the most famous and emulated wines on Earth. These larger producers are able to promote the Champagne brand overseas, support smaller producers by buying their grapes and innovate by playing with fermentation in oak, dosage (very dry) styles and organic viticulture. The smaller producers, therefore are very fond of their big brothers… But what about the little brothers? Well, we wuv them, big time.

We especially wuv ‘Grower Houses’, such as Pierre Gimonnet, Drappier and Antoine Remy, who grow the grapes and make the wine themselves, rather than buying in the grapes or the wine to create a blend. H Blin is a co-op of growers that works on a similar principle. These Growers also sell their grapes on, but are doing this less and less as demand for Grower Champagne grows. Happy days. The other great thing about smaller and lesser known outfits is that they invest all their efforts and finances on making the best wine they can from their vineyards, which results in very good value wine with a strong sense of place. So what about the stuff in the bottle? Well, it is composed of one, two or all of the following grapes: Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier and, traditionally, Houses would create a blend of these, without being steered by which grapes grew locally. However, the past 10 years or so has seen producers making the most of the grapes that thrive in their vicinity. Pierre Gimmonet, for example, are situated on the Côtes des Blancs and so exclusively use Chardonnay, which thrives there. H Blin use a lot of Pinot Meunier, which does well in the Vallée de la Marne and Drappier, based in Urville, which predominantly uses Pinot Noir. Drappier also use historic grape varieties such as Arbane, Petit Meslier, Fromenteau and Blanc Vrai, which have lower yields but exceptional character – and look set to make a comeback (hooray!) That’s all from us, all you have to do now is decide what’s for breakfast.

  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.

    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.

    What’s in a name? This Champagne does not have a famous name, which means that you aren’t paying for PR, advertising and celebrity endorsement, just a great fizz. But the name that this Oddbins exclusive Champagne bears is Antoine, meaning "highly praise-worthy". And it is. If it were possible to bottle elegance this is what it would taste like: raspberry sorbet, sakura and fresh cream. So watch this one because we think its fame will grow exponentially and soon everyone will know the name Antoine Remy.

    £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.

    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!

    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…

    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.

    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.

    We have teamed up with one of the longest established champagne houses, Champagne Ayala, to offer a lucky customer the chance to win a meal at the iconic Soho restaurant, Bob Bob Ricard.

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.

    And, when you do seek it out, you know why: toasty and buttery, bold and assertive, yet balanced, citrusy and complex, this Pinot Noir-driven fizz is one worth hunting down. OK, maybe it is a coincidence…

  38. 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.

  39. 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.

  40. Grüner Veltliner Sekt Sparkling Wine

    Huber Grüner Veltliner Sekt 2014

    £18.50

    £18.50

    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 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.

    You know when you should buy Jansz rosé? Any time you’re feeling romantic, any time you’re feeling whimsical, any time you feel like doing a cartwheel for the sheer joy of it, or any time you feel like jumping like a springbok into the nearest river.

    Why? Because this is such a joyful wine. It is deliciously soft and gentle, full of wild strawberries and clotted cream, with a poised acidity that will make you go and jump in the river all over again.

    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.

    Let's be honest, when we invest in a bottle of luxury champagne, it's not only the booze we're buying. We're making a statement. And nothing wrong with that. We're saying 'this is a special moment (or maybe just 'we are special people…'), and we need something special to mark it'.

    But what to choose to avoid the clichéd and eschew the bling? How about Krug Grande Cuvee, with its blend of up to 120 vintage wines making it not only utterly fabulous, but taking it 'beyond the concept of vintage'? Special enough for you? Special enough for us, for any (grand) occasion.

    Krug Rosé NV Champagne

    £235.00

    £235.00

    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.

  46. 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.

    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…

  48. Laurent-Perrier Champagne 2006 Vintage

    Laurent Perrier 2006 Vintage Champagne

    £52.00

    £52.00

    Of all the Champagne houses, Laurent-Perrier has a certain knack of getting a distinctly different voice across on all its incarnations. Laurent-Perrier boasts an enviable extended family (its Ultra Brut, for example is best in its class) and this vintage version follows in that long line of enviables. Every drop of this one comes from Grand Cru vineyards: honeyed notes ride upon an elegant and dry body; while richness and complexity are never lost in the shuffle.
