The British have had a love affair with Bubbly since the 19th century and it has become an irreplaceable part of our celebrations and festive get togethers. So why not put a little sparkle into Christmas with some of our festive fizz? We have 4 stunning sparkling wines for you to choose from and what’s more we have reduced the prices until Christmas.
Our sparkling wines have been specially chosen to pair well with food as well as stand alone as the perfect welcoming aperitif. They accompany most foods from canapés and seafood as well as rich dishes such as duck, venison and beef – even desserts!
This is an elegant and delicate sparkling wine fizzing with fine, long lasting bubbles which is produced from grapes grown in the South West of France and the vineyards of the Loire Valley. Made by the Charmat Method (Méthode Charmat, developed in 1907) from a blend of Chardonnay, Folle Blanche, Ugni Blanc and Chenin Blanc, Come de Laube has subtle notes of lemon, toasted almonds, greengage, apple and broom blossom. On the palate, it reveals slight floral touches of quite surprising finesse. The finish is pleasantly and very slightly fruity.
Crémant d’Alsace is ‘the’ top selling sparkling wine in France and we are very pleased to be able to offer it here in the UK. The House of Jean Baptiste Adam is one of the best producers: founded in 1614, the House has no less than 14 generations of winemakers behind it and today follows bio dynamic principles. Their Crémants are made in the Alsace village of Ammerschwihr which lies in the Kaefferkopf Grand Cru vineyard.
