Bubble bar: Christmas with a pop
It’s Time to Make the Party Pop! Nothing says Party Time quite like the sound of popping corks! This month, we’re going to present two of our favourite sparkling wines, both literally sparkling with energy! Light, fun and refreshing, choose the bubbles to accompany you through the holiday season wisely. Now’s the time to stock up before the madness of Christmas begins. Not least, we’ll take you through the differences between the sparkling wines of the world; all Champagne is sparkling, but not all sparkling wines are Champagne. Grab a glass and raise it high; Cheers to you all!
La sélection Retro Reds - Crisp
Château Laride 2008
Classic and traditional; it has to be a Chateau from Domaines Fabres! We found this beauty in the world famous Haut-Medoc, dominated by Cabernet Sauvignon and softened by Merlot, with a touch of spicy Petit Verdot to round out the blend. It's now at its peak and a wonderful example of why Bordeaux is so sought after around the world. A surprise is in store, if you've never tasted a wine like this before!Retro Reds
This beautiful Champagne is the combined effort of 5 vignerons in the region, utilising all three of Champagne's major grape varieties. A wonderful wine of finesse and freshness thanks to the Chardonnay, with the structure of Pinot Noir and the delicious, fruity flavours of Pinot Meunier combining wonderfully. There're lots of reasons we like this wine so much, and its versatility, ideal with aperitifs to dessert, is just one of them!Crisp
