Ruinart Blanc de Blancs : Ruinart Blanc de Blancs NV is made primarily from grapes sourced in the Premier Cru villages of the Côte des Blancs and Montagne de Reims. This approachable, pure and creamy non-vintage contains 20-25% reserve wines from the previous two years.

Taittinger Prelude Grand Crus NV: The blend is made from 50% Chardonnay grapes from the Côte des Blancs primarily from Avize and Le Mesnil sur Oger and 50% Pinot Noir from the Montagne de Reims area including Mailly, Ambonnay. It is the speciality of the Grands Crus that bring precise characters to the wine such as its minerality. There are 17 Grand Cru Villages, the top rated locations which is about 14% of champagnes total vineyard area.

Pol Roger Rose 2012: A salmon pink colour that has a stream of glittering fine bubbles. The nose is enticing with aromas of red berries and citrus. A sweet buttery brioche taste with abundance of blackcurrants and quince. A very fresh and elegant vintage with a powerful finish.

Pierre Gimmonet Special Club Blanc de Blancs 2012: With 87% of the Special Club rapes sourced from two of Gimonnet?s Grand Cru vineyards, this is a beautifully balanced cuvee with great depth, structure and minerality. Delicate floral aromatics and nutty notes on the palate, a fine mousse and with the classic Gimonnet freshness on the finish achieved by the final portion of grapes from the 1er Cru Cuis vineyard. Extremely elegant and with great longevity.
