The UK and Champagne have long had a love affair…

The world’s first sparkling wine was said to have been created in the region back in the 17th century. Today, historically celebrated Champagne producers are met with emerging boutique houses and individual growers. With an abundance of new talent, Champagne is in its golden age.

The UK and Champagne have long had a love affair…

Overall UK Champagne sales are still dominated by the ubiquitous Grand Marques but our own customers are displaying a step change in their approach to the world’s original sparkling wine. For collectors and drinkers alike, Champagne is throwing off the shackles of the big, predictable brands and rekindling some emotion of days gone by.

In the grower camp, top names like Pascal Doquet, Egly Ourriet and Ulysse Collin are proving that through careful viticulture and precise, low intervention wine making, it's possible to create balanced wines that are faithful to their origins yet strikingly individual. Last but not least, our own label Champagnes Sarcey and 250th Anniversary, continue to provide some of the best value bubbles in town, each with an army of devoted drinkers up and down the country.

For all the talk of falling Champagne sales in supermarkets, our own feeling is that Champagne as a fine wine is in the middle of a golden age. Long may it continue…
