We hand pick our Champagnes and Sparkling Wines for their superb quality and excellent value for money. Our selection includes Grower Champagnes and Cremants from ancient, small family owned vineyards that make artisan wines which reflect their terroir; and our Sparkling Wines (Vins Mousseux) are sourced from some of the best specialist producers in the business.
Champagne & Sparkling
Champagnes are made by independent producers who own the vineyards and
grow their own grapes (large Champagne Houses, owned by conglomerates,
use grapes sourced from as many as 80 different vineyards). The reason
that Grower Champagnes have become all the rage over the past few years
is that there are some great discoveries to be made. What’s more if you
find a good Grower Champagne you are bagging a bargain as these
producers simply don’t have the huge marketing budgets that the grand
marques do, therefore their Champagne is often less expensive – and in
our opinion often much better.
