A very special, and frankly amazing, gift package complete with two bespoke flutes, produced by designer Martin Baas to celebrate the 50th Anniversary of the Ruinart champagne house's prestige cuvée, Dom Ruinart.
Re-released after extra maturing on its lees in the Moet cellars, this Oenotheque is a recently-disgorged version of a classic Dom Perignon vintage - many experts have suggested that 1996 may be better than the famed 1990 vintage. Sensational stuff.
Bollinger's 2002 Blanc de Noirs is the top champagne that this famous house produces. It has been made in small quantities since 1969 using low density vineyards which produce a very rich base wine. A very rare and much sought after champagne.
From a tiny walled vineyard at Le Mesnil-sur-Oger, planted with exclusively Chardonnay grapes (making this a Blanc de Blanc), Krug Clos du Mesnil was the zenith of Krug's cuvees until the arrival of the even more limited and expensive Clos D'Ambonnay Blanc de Noirs.
A huge methusaleh (6 litres) of Louis Roederer's top of the range Cristal champagne. 2002 was an excellent year for champagne, with Berry Brothers claiming it to be the greatest vintage since 1990, and this bottle is big enough for everyone to have a taste.
