Much of the trick in buying Champagne liess in finding a good one without being taken for a ride pricewise, often by the draw of the big names. This Baron de Marck has a beautiful and pure fruit character as well as a hint of brioche, giving it a soft rounded flavour. This is a Champagne which is perfect as an aperitif or with canapés and nibbles or with lighter dishes. Great Champagne, great price.
Tiny gentle bubbles and a vibrant salmon colour distinguish this blend of Chardonnay and Pinot Noir. Lovely blackcurrant and strawberry aromas intermingle with hints of spice and brioche to add layers of complexity and interest. The supple texture of the wine is coaxed out by these ripe, sweet red fruit flavours together with its frothy character. A bright currant flavour balances the fullness and leaves the palate refreshed.
Beautifully deep in colour with a persistent fine bead. The bouquet shows hints of satsuma, plum and black cherry leading to an explosion of dark exotic fruits on the palate. A very special sparkling red for times of celebration.
Intense gold with persistent fine mousse. The nose opens with floral rose notes and warms to toasted brioche. The mouth is full and fresh with spicy floral notes (wallflower or nasturtium), underpinned with candied yellow fruit. The finish is long and dry. This is a classy mid-term vintage from Pol Roger that will continue to improve for at least 5 years in bottle and in magnum for 10-12 years. Typically this has the power to match fine dining and would work well with lobster or other crustaceans as well as rich or pungent or spicy dishes
Pale gold in colour with a fine mousse the wine is aromatic on the nose. On the palate it is well balanced and shows great finesse and complexity. It is the Pinot Noir that gives the wine richness and a long finish while the Chardonnay from the finest soils of the Côte des Blancs adds delicacy liveliness and freshness. Pinot Meunier mainly from the Marne Valley gives the wine an appealing fruitiness and roundness. Ideal as an aperitif Brut Majeur is also the perfect wine to serve throughout a meal. It will pair perfectly with seafood or grilled fish as well as soft cheeses such as Coulommiers Chaource and Brieterrines and fruit-based desserts.

A delicate cherry colour with a hint of copper. The mousse is fine and persistent. On the nose, there are aromas of red fruits (strawberries, raspberries, morello cherries) together with nuances of spice. On the palate, this wine is powerful, vinous and is well balanced with a rich and fresh long lasting finish.
