Champagne & Sparkling Wines


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.

    Anna De Codorniu Brut Nature NV Cava

    Now £10.00

    Was £11.00

    £10.00

    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.

  3. 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.

  4. Antoine Remy Rosé Champagne Non Vintage AOC

    Antoine Remy Rosé NV Champagne

    £30.00

    £30.00

    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.

  5. Besserat de Bellefon Blanc de Blancs NV Vegetarian Champagne

    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.

  6. Besserat de Bellefon Rosé NV Pink Champagne

    Besserat de Bellefon Rosé NV Champagne

    £41.00

    £41.00

    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...

    £95.00

    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.*

    Ca Rosa 'Pink' Spumante NV

    Now £10.50

    £10.50

    Zamboni grew the most beautiful roses in Veneto. Young suitors (and sometimes even bashful husbands) came from miles around to purchase blooms to woo their paramour (or apologise for some misdemeanour). So often did Zamboni's flowers turn unrequited love into a blossoming relationship that customers came from farther and farther afield. And thereby lay the problem. Nature has its limits. And some came so far the blooms wilted by the time they got them home.

    Inevitably, people began to question the quality of Zamboni's roses, and he quickly recognised something had to be done. He set about making a sparkling 'pink' wine, as elegant as the flowers themselves, and with a finish as lingering and soft as adoration. We suggest you drink it from a vase.

  11. 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.

  12. Canard-Duchêne Authentic Brut NV Champagne

    Canard-Duchêne Authentic Brut NV Champagne - Magnum

    Now £49.00

    Was £55.00

    £49.00

    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.

    The history of humanity is defined by great love affairs; Romeo & Juliet (okay it's fictional), Richard & Judy (they've been a mainstay of British telly for 78 years!) and the greatest romance of all; wine & barrels. That's what makes the story of Canard-Duchêne so beautiful; the marriage of Victor Canard a cooper and Léonie Duchêne a winemaker is like a pastiche of the relationship between oak and grape juice. Victor and Léonie may have long left this mortal plane but their love affair lives on through this expressive Champagne house that brings sparkling wine and oak together.

    If this Champagne is anything to go by, the relationship is working. This organic Champagne is partially vinified in oak barrels and blended from 12 hectares of organically certified and cultivated vineyards, followed by bottle aging on the lees. The resultant wine has an elegant freshness with a rounded fruit character, balanced brilliantly with a biscuity backbone.

    "When a wine loves a barrel, can't keep its mind on nothing else!" We don't know about you but were getting a bit teary-eyed...

  14. Canard-Duchene Rose NV

    Canard-Duchêne Rosé NV Champagne

    £30.00

    £30.00

    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.

    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...

  16. Château de l'Aulée Crémant de Loire 'Cuvée Jeanne d'Arc' NV Vegetarian Sparkling White 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.

  18. Champagne Ayala Blanc de Blancs 2008 Vintage Chardonnay

    Champagne Ayala Blanc de Blancs 2008 Vintage Champagne

    £55.00

    £55.00

    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.

    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.

    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.

  22. 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.

    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.

  24. Tarlant Brut Nature Zero NV Vegan and Vegetarian Champagne

    Champagne Tarlant Brut Nature Zero NV

    £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...

    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!

    Since 1921 Dom Pérignon has more or less defined the term 'vintage champagne', not least because Dom Pérignon only makes vintage champagne. Even more so because DP is only produced in years where the grape harvest will deliver something outstanding. A grand total of 38 years in the last 91. No wonder it’s been the favourite champagne of Marilyn Monroe, James Bond and countless other figures of renown, real and fictional. Glamour, tradition and elegance all wrapped up in that fabulously stylish bottle. Not to mention the definitively wonderful champagne.

    Since 1921, Dom Pérignon has more or less defined the term ‘vintage champagne’, not least because they only make vintage champagne. It is also because DP is only produced in years where the grape harvest will deliver something outstanding, which means that only roughly half of the past 100 or so vintages have been declared.

    No wonder it’s been a favourite of Marilyn Monroe, James Bond and countless other figures of repute… real and fictional. With its flavours of delicate marzipan and cocoa, finessed peach and white apricot and, finally, decadent, spicy notes that go on and on, you, like Dom Pérignon, may just exclaim ‘come quickly – I am tasting the stars’!

    Dom Thierry Ruinart was a visionary Benedictine monk who lived from 1657-1709 and was instrumental in the development of sparkling wine. That's got to be one of the greatest contributions a monk has made to the secular world. He certainly did more than that Friar Huberd in The Canterbury Tales, didn't he live in a cupboard or something? O wait, no, that's a salty sailor's limerick that shouldn't be shared in polite company. Throughout his life, Dom Thierry Ruinart would visit his brother at his home in Champagne and relayed his conviction that 'vin de mousse' had a promising future.

    In 1729, twenty years after the death of Dom Ruinart, Nicolas Ruinart, Dom Ruinart's nephew, founded the first Champagne House, Maison Ruinart, and forever ingrained his uncle's name and the house in the history books. With an elegant toasted aroma, balanced with fresh floral notes and succulent stone fruit flavours, Dom Ruinart vintage champagne is a monument to the great man's prestigious legacy.

  30. Drappier Cuvée Saint-Georges NV Champagne

    Drappier Cuvée Saint-Georges NV Champagne

    £25.00

    £25.00

    When you think Pinot Noir you picture deliciously soft, silky and smooth red wines with juicy red berry flavours and earthy aromas, right? Not necessarily...

    Luckily, the brainboxes at Drappier know that when you remove the skin, Pinot Noir grapes help to create ludicrously rich, aromatic and elegant champagnes. The Cuvée Saint-Georges, for example, uses a high proportion of it to offer fine yet rich aromas of stone fruits and white peaches. A lending hand from Chardonnay and Pinot Meunier gives this bubbling beauty a deliciously complex palate with hints of spice and notes of quince jelly.

    Forget what you think you know about that little red grape and open your taste buds to this exclusive and sensational champagne. Cheers!

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    You might think you're familiar with the story of John the Baptist, but you probably don't know the truth. When Herod's daughter demanded John's head on a salver after dancing for her father - he being pleased enough to offer anything she wanted in return - Herod was horrified. 'Why on a plate?' he thought.

    Fearing his little girl wanted to consume the bonce, he had his chefs build a fake head. Pork and chicken skin. Quails eggs for eyes... surely the ruse would be obvious. However, the 'head' was served with a mesmerising champagne, the sheer distraction of which took the girl's attention from what was really on the plate. Interestingly, the bubbles went beautifully with the nibbles too.

    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.

    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.

    With consistency of production that would impress even the Germans, Lanson Black Label is a flipping reliable Champagne. But reliable is not to be confused with boring, oh no no no. Aged for three years and blended with grapes from 40-50 different crus, it has flirtatious aromas of honey-topped toast and spring flowers, followed by flavours of ripe citrus, crisp apple and lemony brioche.. And with some dainty flutes to boot, your gift recipient can certainly RELY on this…

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

    Laurent-Perrier Rosé is the benchmark for rosé Champagne, you can now purchase it presented in an exquisite, limited edition gold "robe" cage. An ideal gift for the Champagne enthusiasts in your life.

    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...

    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?

    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!

    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?

    A heavily fruit driven sparkling wine unveiling refreshing notes of apple and lemon, with vibrance and creamy mousse. A delicate pale lemon in colour, contrasted by excellent depth of flavour and tantalising acidity and depth. Well balanced sparkling wine giving way to red fruit and toast flavours.

    Given finding them usually involves whacking a rock with a hammer, it's a miracle any fossils remain intact. Especially delicate ones, like the echinoderms and crinoids. Then they have to be carefully cleaned, too.

    With this in mind, a group of paleontologists based near Devon's Jurassic coast developed a preparation that would help. It took years, but finally they had it. A liquid with just enough acidity to break down excess rock, and a playful little fizz to lift the particles, leaving the specimen perfectly exposed. Needless to say, a celebration ensued. Actually, with such aplomb things got a little fuzzy. It was only after the toast was offered and glasses drained they realised they'd drunk the special mixture. Happily, being grape-based, no ill effects were suffered. On the contrary, they use it less and less for cleaning fossils now...

    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.
