CHAMPAGNE

It is said that a champagne bottle is popped open every second of the day somewhere in the world.

The last 20 years has seen unprecedented growth in export sales, led by the UK along with mergers and acquisitions of brands and estates by the big Champagne houses. Whilst auspicious brands as Dom Pérignon, Krug, Pol Roger and Louis Roederer's Cristal rightly command attention and respect, the very essence and spirit still remains with the growers and the quality of the vineyards.

TASTING NOTES

From one of the very finest vintages of the past three decades this is already oozing with class and sensuous appeal. It is marvellously complex with ripe aromas of ripe orchard fruit and zesty citrus. The palate just continues the seduction with an array of flavours that reminds you why Champagne is one of the noblest wines of...

TASTING NOTES

Absolutely outstanding. This low dosage cuvée captures the brilliance of 2008. Classic Gimonnet: racy, driving and mineral with real delicacy. This blossoms in the glass to reveal an underlying seriousness which will unravel with age. Spectacular today but with a big future.

Firm and lightly toasty, with smoky almond and pure black cherry notes riding the fine, satiny mousse, while well-knit acidity and a chalky, mineral-tinged underpinning lends this structure and density. Disgorged June 2013. Drink now through 2029.

TASTING NOTES

The nose of this Champagne is a spring bouquet: rose, wild strawberry, raspberry and later blackberry, combine perfectly to offer the taster aromas, which would be unexpected in a normal rosé Champagne. The mouth follows on from the nose, with the structure of the Pinot Noir leaving at a convincing vinosity at the finish. By virtue of its freshness, this...

Very attractive, bright and fragrant red fruits on the nose here. This has a wealth of fresh yeasty characters, fresh pastry and bread dough, plus red fruits, pink grapefruit, and some floral notes too. The palate has a strong nectarine and light cherry flavor thread. Chardonnay has a lot to say here; the texture is creamy and the balance right...

Vilmart's 2009 Brut Premier Cru Grand Cellier Rubis is fabulous. A rich, deep rosé, the 2009 is all about texture. Layers of fruit open up in the glass in a silky, aromatically expressive Champagne loaded with class. The radiant, resonant style, so typical of the year, is on full display. The Grand Cellier Rubis remains one of the most polished,...
