Champagne & Sparkling
CHAMPAGNEBILLECART-SALMONStill family run, the small house of Billecart-Salmon offers a range of black-grape-dominated Champagnes with bright, complex fruit flavours resulting from a long, slow, cool fermentation process. Particularly well known for its elegant Rosé, Billecart-Salmon is a Champagne house for wine lovers: many who discover it drink few other Champagnes thereafter.

BOLLINGERBollinger La Grande Année 2008 €99.00Food pairing suggestion Great paired with truffled popcorn, Parma ham or rich seafood such as lobster or seared scallops, especially with a sauce.
DOM PERIGNONDom Pérignon, owned by Moët & Chandon, is an exclusively vintage prestige cuvée Champagne. It is made from roughly equal quantities (varying slightly according to the vintage) of Chardonnay and Pinot Noir, grown only in the best vineyard sites in Champagne. During production, the wine sees no oak and is protected from oxidation as much as possible making it one of Champagne's most reductive, minerally styles with an overarching elegance, harmony and completeness. It is one of the most classic, famous, and eye-catching of all wines and consistently tastes as good as its reputation suggests it will.

One of the most northern wine producing regions in the world, Champagne is located 90 miles north-east of Paris with 34,000 hectares of vines. Surrounding the Champagne hubs of Epernay and Reims,
the region produces around a million bottles of Champagne a day.
A technique said to have been invented by Dom Pérignon in 1688, Champagne is made using the traditional
method whereby a second fermentation is induced in the bottle, producing CO2 which becomes trapped,
resulting in a sparkling wine. Champagne style wines are now replicated all over the world.
These premium wines are usually made from a blend of grapes: Chardonnay to add fruit and elegance; the
red grapes, Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier, for body and backbone.
93ptsThe Wine Advocate
“Pale yet intense pink in color, the Billecart-Salmon NV Brut Rosé is pure,
fresh and intense on the nose, with lovely raspberry aromas, refreshing
citrus zest flavors and great definition. On the palate this is a pure, light and
vinous rosé with great finesse and a long, well-structured and even juicy
“Lemon peel, white flowers, mint and white pepper give the 2008 its
chiseled, bright profile. Several recent bottles have all been magnificent.
What I admire most about the 2008 is the way it shows all the focus,
translucence and energy that is such a signature of the year, and yet it is also
remarkably deep and vertical. In other words, the 2008 is a Champagne that
plays in three dimensions.”

LAURENT-PERRIERChardonnay forms the core of most of Laurent-Perrier's cuvées giving the wines a fresh, elegant style. The exception to this is their Cuvée Rosé, for which the house is best known. Made from 100% Pinot Noir, it is unusual in that it is made by the tricky ‘saignée’ method. This is the technique by which the pink colour is obtained through maceration of the skins rather than the addition of red wine (the way most rosé Champagnes are made) and gives Laurent-Perrier Rosé its remarkable flavour.

LOUIS ROEDERERMost famous for their prestige cuvée Cristal which was first created in 1876 for the Tsar of Russia, Alexander II, the house of Louis Roederer is known for the sheer quality and style of their wines across the range. Roederer is the largest owner of organically-farmed (and increasingly, biodynamically-farmed) vineyards in Champagne. The wines are distinguished by their superb balance, finesse and elegance and their fine, creamy mousse.

RUINARTRuinart is Champagne's oldest house, with a history dating back to 1729. The Chardonnay grape is at the heart of all Ruinart's wines giving them freshness and bright fruit aromas. The wines, vinified non-oxidatively in stainless steel, have a minerally character in youth, developing toasty, smoky characteristics with bottle age.

SPAINCAVAAGUSTI TORELLO MATA“Although Agusti Torello was founded in 1950, this estate sold its Cava to other producers for twenty or thirty years before taking the plunge and bottling themselves. Their philosophy and tagline is: “Cava with soul,” something sceptics might smirk at, at least until they taste them. All fruit is sourced from Penedes from organically cultivated vines and they concentrate upon Reserva and Gran Reserva only.”

ALTA ALELLAOrganic grapes produce a dry base wine which is then fermented according to the traditional method, as used in Champagne. Aged a minimum of 15 months on its yeast lees to impart a delicate bready flavour and released without any dosage making it the refreshing ultra-brut style. Unusually, no sulphites or other products are added in the whole process.

Sparkling wine is arguably the most technical style of wine in the world. Not only do these wines have to undergo a first fermentation in order to make alcohol, but also a second
fermentation to produce the carbon dioxide giving the wine its fizz. This is done either in the same way as Champagne, where the second fermentation takes place in the bottle, or by using
the tank method where it takes place inside a sealed tank.
Produced all around the world, sparkling wine comes in a huge range of styles, from bone dry to
perfumed and floral.

absolutely fascinating nose with its fine, complex and elegant bouquet

Rosé is produced in a variety of styles around the world, although perhaps the best known are those from Provence. Not only is this France’s oldest wine region, having been making wine for
over 2,600 years, but it is also the only one to focus on rosé.
It even has a research institute dedicated to the style. Dry, crisp and refreshing, these wines are a blend
of regional varieties such as Grenache, Carignan and Syrah.
GRAMONAGramona is one of the very finest Cava producers of all. The Xarel-lo-dominant wines are given considerable bottle aging, leading to a rich, autolytic style. A special dosage wine which has been matured in a solera fashion for over 100 years also adds complexity.

JOSE LUIS FERRERJosé Luis Ferrer started his winery in 1931 when viticulture on the island was in serious decline and practically all gone. Soon thereafter, the Spanish Civil War and the ensuing reign of Franco made commerce more challenging and tested Ferrer’s resolve. He refused to give in and continued to produce wine despite the odds. His hard work was rewarded in 1990 when the region was givenDO status. Mallorca is now righty regarded as one of the greatest places in Spain to make wine.

France produces 7-8 billion bottles of wine every year, second only to Italy in terms of volume. A key part of French culture, with 27 billion hectolitres being drunk in France
annually, wine is produced throughout the country in every style.
France’s long-standing wine heritage gave birth to the appellation system, designed to preserve regional wine styles, which has been emulated all over Europe.
France is also the source of many international grape varieties such as Cabernet Sauvignon, Pinot Noir, Syrah, Sauvignon Blanc and Chardonnay.

FRANCE WHITE ALSACELocated between the centre and north of France, the Loire valley stretches 600 miles east to
west and accounts for 8% of the country’s vineyards including the famous appellations of Sancerre, Pouilly-Fumé, Muscadet and Vouvray. Sancerre and Pouilly-Fumé are situated at
the far eastern end of the Loire valley and arguably produce the world’s greatest expressions of Sauvignon Blanc. Sancerre also produces high quality reds and rosés from Pinot Noir.
The Loire is considered to be France’s most diverse wine region given the different climates and soil
types such a large region offers, and as such, produces wines in every style.

Protected by the Vosges Mountains, Alsace is one of the driest regions in France and due to its northern latitude has very long hours of sunshine during the growing season. This helps to ripen the grapes and produce some of the world’s finest white wines.
The wines from Alsace are produced from noble varieties such as Riesling, Pinot Gris and
Gewurztraminer and unlike elsewhere in France, here, the name of the grape must appear on the
label. The best vineyard sites have been given Grand Cru status.

COTES DE BEAUNE
COTES DE NUITS
COTE DE NUITSThe Côte de Nuits is a 20km stretch forming the northern part of the Côte d’Or, Burgundy’s
‘golden slope’, and it is here that most of the world’s finest examples of Pinot Noir
are produced. Named after the region’s largest village, Nuits-Saint-Georges, 22 out of
Burgundy’s 23 red Grands Crus are located here, expressing a variety of styles. They tend
to be weightier and deeper coloured than the Pinots produced on the Côte de Beaune.
Gevrey-Chambertin, Vougeot and Nuits-Saints-Georges are known for their robust style of
wine, whilst Chambolle-Musigny and Vosne-Romanée display finesse and elegance.
COTE DE BEAUNEDespite the Côte de Beaune being well-known for its white wines, there is actually more red
wine produced in the region. The Pinot Noirs from this southern half of the Côte d’Or show
softness and finesse with the best examples coming from Beaune, Pommard and Volnay as
well as the exceptionally powerful Grand Cru of Corton.

The better examples come from the Beaujolais Villages which are on granite hills and offer a more complex flavour profile. Fleurie and Morgon are two of the best known of these crus and can improve over 10 years or so, evolving to taste like Pinot Noir.

With 57 different appellations and 10,000 producers, Bordeaux is home to some of the world’s finest Châteaux, producing long-lasting wines of exceptional quality. 88% of the production of Bordeaux is red wine, or Claret as it is known in the UK,
made from Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc and Merlot. Bordeaux is also the source of dry whites made from Sauvignon Blanc and Sémillon, and some of the
world’s longest-lived sweet wines from Sauternes.
The wines of the Bordeaux left bank were classified in 1855 and only five have attained First Growth status - Château Lafite, Château Mouton Rothschild,
Château Latour, Château Margaux and Château Haut Brion. Those Châteaux that made it into any of the five tiers of this classification will have Grand Cru Classé
on the label.

MEDOCHome to many of the biggest names in Bordeaux, the Médoc is the most famous red wine region in the world and includes the renowned appellations of St Estèphe, Pauillac, St Julien and Margaux. Situated on the left bank of the Gironde estuary, the best vineyard sites are located on gravelly outcrops close to the river. The left bank is well suited to the production of Cabernet Sauvignon and the wines produced here will generally have this as the dominant grape in the blend.
ST ESTEPHEThis is the most northerly of the important communes of the Médoc. The wines here take on a rustic style due to the high proportion of clay in the soil. As a result they can seem austere in their youth, however they display good acidity and colour and are exceptionally long-lived.
PAUILLACConsidering that Pauillac is a small region of only 23km², three of the five First Growth Châteaux are located here – Château Latour, Château Lafite and Château Mouton Rothschild – with Grands Crus Classés representing 84% of the rest of the production. Fine, deep and gravelly soils mean that the vine roots reach a greater depth here than anywhere else in the Médoc. The resulting wines are intense and display great complexity.
ST JULIENSt Julien is the smallest of the well-known Médoc communes at only 700ha with a uniform style thanks to the gravelly soils. Despite having no First Growth properties, St Julien is considered to offer the most consistent wines across the board, with impressive offerings year after year.
MARGAUXThe largest commune in the Médoc, and home to First Growth Château Margaux, Margaux is famous for producing the most elegant and alluring wines of the Left Bank. With the lightest and most gravelly soils in the Médoc, the finest examples of Margaux are intensely perfumed whilst also subtle and refined.
PESSAC-LEOGNAN/GRAVESPessac-Léognan is a district within Graves that was created in 1986 due to pressure from the vignerons who wanted to disassociate themselves from growers further south in the commune where the soils are much sandier. Pessac-Léognan is home to Château Haut Brion, the only First Growth property outside of the Médoc.
RIGHT BANKPOMEROLPomerol is the smallest of the prestigious Bordeaux appellations with around only 150 producers and 740 hectares of vineyards. Demand and prices for these wines are high given that many of these are boutique growers making circa 1,000 cases a year. Pomerol is dominated by Merlot, producing rich and smooth wines, and features some iconic properties such as Château Pétrus.
ST EMILIONLocated on the right bank of the Dordogne, St Emilion is one of the most important Bordeaux appellations in terms of both quality and quantities produced. Merlot is the predominant grape variety and is perfectly suited to the clay and chalk-rich soils here. Cabernet Franc and Cabernet Sauvignon are also grown. Given the high proportion of Merlot, these wines are much more approachable in youth than the more tannic examples produced on the left bank.

CHATEAU MOUTON ROTHSCHILDChâteau Mouton Rothschild is the only Château to achieve reclassification since 1855 when the wines from Bordeaux were sorted into five tiers according to the prices they were fetching on the market at the time. This unique recategorisation took place in 1973 when Mouton Rothschild entered into the realm of the top five Châteaux (Premiers Grands Crus Classés). The bottles from this vineyard are famous not only for the powerful yet deceptively smooth wine inside, but also for the colourful labels brought out each year which are designed by a different artist for each vintage.

The northern Rhône contains some of the oldest vineyards in France producing elegant wines made from Syrah which are both powerful
and have the capacity to age. Hermitage and Côte-Rôtie are the stars of the north, needing at least a decade to show at their best. St
Joseph and Cornas produce more accessible examples whilst Crozes-Hermitage offers great value for money.
The valley floor opens out in the southern Rhône, with vines planted low to the ground in goblet formation to protect them from the strong
mistral winds. The soils here are made up of round stones from the ancient river bed and these retain the warmth of the day, helping
to fully ripen the grapes of the heat-loving Grenache. The best wine villages of the Côtes du Rhône have been given their own appellation
such as Gigondas and the well-known Châteauneuf-du-Pape.
Following the Rhône River from north to south, this southern French wine region is 250 km in length with 200 communes producing wine
in a wide range of styles.

“Smoked meats, incense, cigar box and dusty earth notions over a core of baked cherries, dried mulberries,
preserved plums and dried roses with wafts of lavender, menthol and
new leather. The palate is medium to full-bodied, rich, intense and packed
with black fruit preserves accented by complex savory and earth-inspired
flavors, supported by wonderful freshness, textured by plush tannins and finishing with fantastic tension.”
99ptsThe Wine Advocate
“A sweet nose of menthol, melted licorice, boysenberry, blueberry, and cassis. A broad wine with compelling
purity, a layered texture, and sweet tannin, with hints of coffee and earth in
the background, this is by far the best Cheval Blanc since 1990 and before
2009. It is a legend in the making and can actually be drunk now, as the
tannins have nearly melted away.”
“Serious wine. Loads of chocolate, raspberry and cherry character.
Full-bodied, with lots of vanilla and reduced raspberry flavors. Long and caressing. Modern and exciting. Best
Couspaude I have ever tasted.”

Home to more than 2000 grape varieties and some of the oldest wine regions in the world, Italy produces more wine than any other country with the 2018 harvest reaching 48.5 million hectolitres. Italy has over 1 million vineyards under cultivation,
producing wines from almost every region, renowned worldwide for their broad variety.
Each region has its own style with the most significant in terms of both quantity and quality being Piedmont, Tuscany and Veneto.
Italy’s best-known grapes are Sangiovese, Nebbiolo, Pinot Grigio, Barbera and Montepulciano alongside international varieties, in particular Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot.
Alto AdigeFriuli-Venezia Giulia
PIEDMONTLocated in the north west of Italy, Piedmont has a continental climate influenced by its proximity to both the Alps and the Ligurian Apennines. Since Roman times,
Piedmont has been considered the fine wine capital of Italy and has the country’s highest proportion of DOC and DOCG wines even though it only accounts for
7% of its production.
Gavi DOCG is Piedmont’s best-known dry white wine made from the Cortese grape grown around the town of Gavi itself. Whites are also made from the indigenous Roero near the town of Arneis. Nebbiolo is the king of red wine grapes in Piedmont and is planted on all
of the best sites. Nebbiolo, the variety behind Barbaresco and Barolo, produces wines with pronounced aromas of tar, roses and truffles which age fantastically,
often needing at least ten years before they really come into their own.
Barbera and Dolcetto are grown around the towns of Asti and Alba producing easier drinking styles that are more accessible from a younger age.
BARBARESCOA third of the size of neighbouring Barolo, and 50 years
younger, Barbaresco is renowned for producing some of Italy’s finest wines. Thanks largely to the efforts of
Angelo Gaja, the region has been recognised for its real potential and it was granted DOCG
status is 1980.
BAROLOBarolo DOC was founded in 1966 and
upgraded to DOCG status in 1980, which seems appropriate given that this is not only Italy’s most
famous wine region, but is also widely regarded to be its best. Reds are made from 100% Nebbiolo which
capitalises on the long, warm summers and the unique terroir, with each village sitting upon its own hill
surrounded by vineyards.
TUSCANYItaly’s oldest wine region, Tuscany is also its fifth largest, producing
the third highest amount of DOCG quality wines despite only producing around 6% of the country’s volume of wine. This is largely due to the region’s poor soils which
encourage producers to grow small yields of high quality grapes.
Tuscany has a unique terrain with more than two thirds of it being hilly which benefits the predominant grape variety, Sangiovese, as it needs direct sunlight to ripen fully. Two of Italy’s most famous wines are found in
Tuscany – Chianti and Brunello di Montalcino.
SUPER TUSCANThe term ‘Super Tuscan’ first emerged in the 1970s to describe a new wave of wine being made outside of DOC/DOCG regulations
to a very high standard, and commanding high prices to match. Many of these wines achieved a cult following and as a result, the Italian classification system was changed to give these DOC or DOCG status. Some producers still prefer to use IGP Toscana.

“This pure expression of Chardonnay is made in a more reductive style in order to highlight that nervous and
bright vein at the back. The wine opens to aromas of Golden Delicious apple, white peach, wild sage, ginger

aromatic development and intensity.”

“Alois Lageder is one of the ultimate Alto Adige artisans. The organic and
biodynamic 2016 Alto Adige Pinot Grigio Porer is a fresh and zesty white
with preserved lemon, honeydew melon and white peach. There is a
zesty, almost spicy note on the close that recalls dried basil or garden mint.
Flint and crushed mineral give the wine dry focus and delineation.”
“This is a gorgeous showing from the 1999 Darmagi. When it was young, the 1999 was compact, but today the 1999
possesses exceptional balance, while retaining an essentially mid-weight expression of Cabernet Sauvignon.”
“Invigorating aromas of red berry, wild mint, camphor and a whiff of rose lead
the nose on this radiant red. Focused and elegant, the savory palate doles
out juicy red cherry, strawberry compote, orange zest and star anise
alongside fine-grained tannins and fresh acidity.”
