Louis Roederer's Cristal champagne is a blend of 55% Pinot Noir and 45% Chardonnay. The vintage saw an excellent mixture of hot, cold and wet weather throughout the year, which helped to produce a distinctive, rich and complex champagne.
A magnum bottle of the 2006 vintage of Perrier Jouët's Belle Epoque prestige cuvee, always excellent and with beautiful presentation. A blend of 50% Chardonnay, 45% Pinot Noir and 5% Pinot Meunier, this is an aromatic and rich champagne.
Fromn the exceptional 1995 vintage, rated 9/10 by posh London wine merchants Berry Bros & Rudd, comes this very special Dom Perignon Oenotheque, which has been given extra ageing on its lees and in bottle prior to release. This should be spectacular.
A magnum of Bollinger's acclaimed R.D. champagne from the much vaunted 1996 vintage. 'R.D.' indicates it is recently disgorged, that is it's spent more time ageing on lees for a nuttier, yeastier taste.
A bottle of Bollinger R.D. 1995. R.D. indicates the bottle was recently disgorged (the process where all the yeast sediment produced during fermentation is removed from the bottle), with the wine having spent 8 years on its lees rather than the normal 5 used for Bollinger vintage. An extra yeasty style of champagne that rewards the patient.
A magnum of Dom Perignon's 2004 vintage Champagne, Moët et Chandon's prestige cuvée. An excellent growing season has resulted in an elegant yet dense champagne with a delightful spicy note on the mid-palate.
A jeroboam of Bollinger's 2004 vintage La Grande Année. A blend of 66% Pinot Noir and 34% Chardonnay. This can either be drunk now, or if you're patient can be cellared for years to come. For the best experience, enjoy at between 10 and 12 degrees Celcius with roast lamb or foie gras.
Bollinger's 2004 Blanc de Noirs is the top champagne that this famous house produces. It has been made in small quantities since 1969 using low density pre-phylloxera vineyards which produce a very rich base wine. A very rare and much sought after champagne.
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.
In an unusual move, Bollinger have released their 2000 vintage R.D. in jeroboam size only. With a cépage of 63% Pinot Nor and 37% Chardonnay, this R.D. (or récemment dégorgé), this sat on its lees for almost 12 years before being disgorged on 7/7/2012, as a hommage to James Bond. Rich and yeasty, this should be served at no less than 12 degrees Celcius.
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.
To celebrate the exceptional 2002 champagne vintage, Louis Roederer have commissioned Philippe Di Méo to dress 400 of their jeroboams in a protective 24 carat gold cover, named 'Flacon Médaillon'. Created by hand, each bottle took 14 people 4 days to produce, including 2 master goldsmiths, and uses 70 metres of brass ribbon dipped in gold. A stunning look for a sensational champagne.
