It can be hard to know what to choose when you aren't familiar with a brand of champagne. If you are keen to try something new, why not try our latest Discovery case, a selection of three small-producer champagnes, each very unique and distinctive. Changing every quarter, you can find the characteristics you like to ensure you never have a bad bottle of bubbly again!
This Brut Nature has no added sugar, which means it is even less calorific than other champagnes! When the sediment is disgorged, most champagnes have a small amount of sugared liqueur added to the bottle. However, this exquisite 100% Pinot Noir champagne is the drink in its purest form with only the natural sugar from the grapes, amounting to 2g per bottle. Earned 2 stars in the Guide Hachette 2011.
One of our best selling champagnes and top award-winners, blending all three of the main Champagne grape varieties from different years, this champagne is fresh, fruity, mellow and great for entertaining guests. Flavours of red and black berries to begin, a kick of freshness in the middle, with a finish of dried apricots and honey. This champagne has just picked up another Gold medal in the Concours Général Agricole 2013.
An unusual rosé blending the three main champagne grapes. Whilst being a Brut, this blend does make for a sweeter tasting pink champagne. A deep colour champagne exhibiting the richness of Pinot Noir and a nice kick of Chardonnay freshness. Like Lamoureux's other champagnes, this rosé can be paired with richer foods.
An innovative creation from the Jean-Jacques Lamoureux house, combining a third of each grape variety taken from three different valleys. Then, aged for one year on oak to create an extremely interesting flavour for a champagne! With three distinct parts to the palate, the richness of aged Pinot Noir, a kick of freshness from the Chardonnay and then a wonderful floral finish rounded off with wonderful honey notes from the oak.
An extremely rare gem from the heart of Champagne. 100% Pinot Blanc, this is a Blanc de Blancs like no other. Pinot Blanc is a speciality of the area around Buxeuil in Côte des Bar; a champagne pale in colour with green tints, a marriage of flavours between the body of Pinot Noir and the finesse of Chardonnay. Gained two stars (“Outstanding”) in the Guide Hachette 2011.
A typical entrepreneurial Champenois family, the lady of the house manages their modern tourist accommodation whilst two of the 3 sons work the champagne business. From the quaint little village of Meurville, Perron-Beauvineau delight with this Extra Dry champagne, which is sweeter than Brut. With all champagnes aged for a minimum of five years, this champagne boasts candied fruit flavours and a great length.
