    Veuve Clicquot Ponsardin Brut

    An absolute benchmark of non-vintage Champagne. The predominance of Pinot Noir provides the structure, a touch of Pinot Meunier rounds out the blend, & Chardonnay adds the elegance and finesse. The perfect Champagne for every situation. Rated 90/100 from Wine Spectator, Wine Enthusiast, & Wine & Spirits magazine.

    Pommery Brut Rosé

    Champagne Pommery was founded in 1858 by Alexandre Louis Pommery and they are based in the famous town of Reims in Champagne. This Rosé Champagne oozes charm, displaying vibrant aromas that are awakened by notes of red berries, red currants, fresh pomegranates and kiwifruit. Flavours of almond cakes are discovered on the palate, alongside lovely fruit characters which work in harmony with the presence of a delicious purity and freshness. 91/100 from Wine Spectator.

    Ernest Rapeneau Brut

    This non-vintage Champagne is the true expression of the Rapeneau’s family origins and tradition. Delightfully, rich and lively balanced with generous sophisticated aromas. Delicate flavours of flower and subtle touches of butter and brioches. 70% Pinot Noir 35% Pinot Meunier 20% Chardonnay. 90/100 from Wine Spectator.

    Variety Description

    Champagne

    Champagne is a sparkling wine produced from grapes grown in the Champagne region of France following rules that demand secondary fermentation of the wine in the bottle to create carbonation. The primary grapes used in the production of Champagne are Pinot noir, Pinot Meunier and Chardonnay.

    Country Description

    France

    Practically all the most famous grape varieties used in the world's wines are French varieties, and wine is produced all throughout France. France is the second largest wine producer in the world after Italy. The wines produced range from expensive high-end wines sold internationally to more modest wines usually only seen within France. In many respects, French wines have more of a regional than a national identity, as evidenced by different grape varieties, production methods and different classification systems in the various regions. Some of the more famous wine regions in France include Bordeaux, Burgundy, Champagne, Loire, Chablis and the Rhône valley.

    Region Description

    Champagne

    The Champagne wine region is a historic province in the northeast of France. The area is best known for the production of the sparkling white wine that bears the region's name. The principal grapes grown in the region include Chardonnay, Pinot noir, and Pinot Meunier. Ancient oceans left behind chalk subsoil deposits when they receded 70 million years ago. Earthquakes that rocked the region over 10 million years ago pushed the marine sediments of belemnite fossils up to the surface to create the belemnite chalk terrain. The belemnite in the soil allows it to absorb heat from the sun and gradually release it during the night as well as providing good drainage. This soil contributes to the lightness and finesse that is characteristic of Champagne wine.
