Bollinger is made from first-run juice only, and the majority of vineyards used have Premier and Grand Cru status, resulting in a full-bodied Champagne of great class. Delightful pale gold in colour.
Unusually made by the saignée method, with plenty of stylish strawberry fruit, full of vivacity and easy-drinking charm. A wonderfully refreshing apéritif, it also works well with a variety of dishes.
Pol Roger's historic underground cellars are 33m deep. They thus provide an environment uniquely suited to slow fermentation, and are responsible for this Champagne's famously super-fine mousse.
One of the few remaining, family owned Champagne houses, De Telmont produces this excellent non-vintage in a medium bodied, soft and fruity, classically yeasty style. Fabulous value.
A brilliant straw colour, with hints of amber, Lanson has a fine stream of persistent bubbles. The nose is vibrant with hints of toast and flowers leading onto a palate of citrus and ripe fruits.
