Synonymous with celebration, the legendary Champagne region produces the world’s favourite sparkling wines from varying blends of Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier. In wine terms the Champagne region is very far north and its cool climate means it is hard to get grapes to ripen fully. The resulting high acidity is one of the reasons that it is so well suited to sparkling wine production.

The palate displays soft peach characters and complex toasty undertones which lead on to a long and crisp finish. Remarkable value, at just half the price of a full-sized 750ml bottle.
