Charles Heidsieck Brut Reserve

Charles Heidsieck Brut Reserve is radiant pale gold with fine, persistent bubbles. Complex pastry aromas, with an opulent combination of ripe apricot, mango and greengages, dried fruits, pistachio and almond. The palate begins with a silky smooth sensation, developing into ripe fleshy apricot, melon and enticing plum pastry notes and delicate spice. A perfect balance of freshness and generosity.

Charles Heidsieck is one of the most admired Champagne houses thanks to the unrivalled and consistently high quality of its wines. The current range is one of the most awarded collections of wines in the world. The intricacies of the champagnes’ complex make-up have been perfected over the years by one of the most celebrated winemaking teams in Champagne – between three winemakers they have been awarded ‘Sparkling Winemaker of the Year’ at the International Wine Challenge fifteen times. This winemaking legacy, paired with the house’s flamboyant history since its foundation in 1851 by the man who would become known as ‘Champagne Charlie’, makes it a unique offering from Champagne: a house with great, hand-crafted wines, heritage and proven quality.

Charles Heidsieck have built exceptional relationships with the most experienced growers across the Champagne region, and can draw on a rich palette of crus. Precise selection of grapes takes place from 60 specific sites. Vineyards which are integral to producing grapes which build the house style are Oger for Chardonnay for its texture, floral notes and ageing ability, Ambonnay for Pinot Noir for its power, vinosity and fruit, and Verneuil for Pinot Meunier for its acidity, body and aromatics.

After the first fermentation, the wine is racked to separate the lees and then undergoes malolactic fermentation to soften the natural acidity. After blending, using 40% reserve wines which have an average age of 10 years, the cuvée is bottled and selected yeast added to begin the second fermentation. The bottles are placed in the cellars at a temperature of 10°C. In order to achieve the depth and complexity required by the house style, Charles Heidsieck age their Non-Vintage champagne for 5 years before disgorging, much longer than the legal requirement of 15 months.

Bollinger Special Reserve

Special Cuvee is made from a majority of reserve wines fermented either in mature oak casks or small stainless steel tanks depending on the characteristics and fundamental potential of the base wines. A significant part of the reserve wines have been fermented in mature oak barrels before being transferred into magnums, which are then stored under cork in Bollinger’s cellars for as long as 12 to 15 years, with a minimum of 5. Blended some years later with the other base wines, coming from the two latest harvests in proportions which can change from one year to another, they impart the final blend with an inimitable and unrivalled consistency and majesty.

Charles Heidsieck Rose Reserve

Charles Heidsieck Rose Reserve is a deliciously fresh wine which perfectly expresses the complexity of the Charles Heidsieck spirit.

Freshly picked strawberry aromas gradually become more intense, with home-made strawberry jam and blood peach alongside rich, warm notes of gingerbread and cinnamon. A vivacious palate full of red fruit, with some generous floral notes. Following a silky-rich texture, the finish is long and balanced.

Pol Roger Brut

Pol Roger Brut Reserve is synonymous with classic, brilliant Champagne. The Champagne has its devout disciples within the trade - almost a trade secret! When you get to taste it you will understand why the trade want to keep it for themselves. The small, classic bubbles, perfumed spice, vanilla and coffee leading to a fruit filled bundle of vibrant tastes finishing with elegant spices and a hint of butter. On the nose, white flowers, green apple, brioche and a trace of minerality dominate the champagne. On the palate there are notes of stone fruits, certain nuttiness and a hint of honey supporting the freshness of the acidity. UK stock receives an additional 6 months post-disgorgement ageing so it is ready to drink upon release but cellaring for a few years will reveal greater depths. The aperitif champagne par excellence but one, which has sufficient backbone to be drunk with a variety of foods.

Col del Sas Prosecco DOCG Extra Dry 2019

Bright straw yellow colour. Fruity bouquet with strong notes of apple and pear. Hints of bread crusts due to the particular vinification process. Smooth and harmonious to the palate, with a unique tactile sensation. The grapes used to make this Valdobbiadene DOCG Prosecco Superiore come from some of the most prestigious vineyards in this appellation. PROSECCO BUYING GUIDE This is a: Extra Dry Prosecco (12-17 g/l of sugar) The most traditional type of Prosecco. The mellow yet crisp taste is a result of its very well-balanced acidity. It is best served at 7-9⁰C and makes an excellent aperitif. Other styles: Brut Prosecco (less than 12 g/l of sugar) The most modern type of Prosecco. Fresh, mineral and extremely elegant taste. Best served at 8-10⁰C, it works perfectly as an accompaniment to seafood and vegetable-based dishes. Dry Prosecco (17-32 g/l of sugar) The less common type of Prosecco. The natural sweetness highlights the wine’s fruitiness and creates a refreshingly tangy yet soft flavour. Best served at 7-9⁰C, try it with dry pastries and spicy dishes.

Spagnol Prosecco DOC Treviso Extra Dry 2019

Classic straw yellow colour. Fine, persistent and delicate bubbles. The bouquet has perfumes and aromas ranging from fruit (pear, apple) to flowers (acacia, elderflower). The sugars in the wine are perfectly balanced with clean acidity and a typical minerality that comes from the fact that the grapes are grown in some of the region's best vineyards. This all gives the impression of a drier wine, but incredibly smooth and well balanced on the palate. From Spagnols family vineyards, low sulphite and suitable for vegans, an excellent value for money. A real artisan Prosecco, for a real Prosecco lover!

Spagnol Colfondo Prosecco Frizzante Il Fondo 2018

A traditional Colfondo Prosecco, made with re-fermentation in the bottle according to the Classic Italian Method, without disgorging or dosing the finished wine. This is a light wine but with good body; bone-dry with residual sugars between 1-4 g/l. The perlage is very fine, given the aging on its own yeasts. There are distinctive notes of bread crusts and ripe yellow fruit. The lees deposit on the bottom is usually compact but, if shaken, it can be quite hazy and cloudy.
