Whether enjoyed over canapés or to pop a cork in celebration raise your sprits during the colder weather with these five champagne suggestions.


Pol Roger champagnePol Roger Pure Brut Nature NV

With a crisp and bone-dry champagne with a gorgeous lemony-minerality - the Pol Roger cellars are the deepest and coolest in Épernay, so fermentation takes longer adding to the soft approachable style.







Laurent-Perrier champagneLaurent-Perrier Grand Siècle NV

The Grand Siècle has subtle hints of honey, hazelnuts, grilled almonds and fresh pastry on the nose. On the palate this wine is powerful, well rounded and has incredible length. Available at Waitrose Cellar only.







Fleury Blanc champagneChampagne Fleury Blanc de Noirs Brut NV

It its fully organic in the vineyard; Fleury was also Champagne’s first biodynamic producer. This mature wine – a blend of several vintages – is made from 100% Pinot Noir, with reserve, oak-matured wines used to add richness to the final blend.






Bollinger champagneBollinger La Grande Année Brut

With a fresh yet full-flavoured and opulent champagne and a fine long toasty finish, Bollinger ferments the still wine in small oak barrels to increase the complexity and ageing potential.







Taittinger chamapagneTaittinger Comtes de Champagne Blanc de Blancs Brut

The Taittinger has a complex, spicy nose with a beautifully creamy and elegant mousse. The palate is elegant, filled with apple, toasted hazelnut and cherry undertones that pave the way to a generous finale. A prestige cuvée Blanc de Blancs.
