   This Champagne exhibits a creamy white Burgundy-like nose of pineapples and tropical
   fruits. Concentrated, light to medium-bodied, dry, pure and fresh. Excellent as an aperitif or
   with light foods such as shellfish, fish or even cold desserts.

02 Perrier-Jouët Grand Brut NV                                                                           £38.00
   The reputation of any Champagne House is inextricably linked with the quality and
   consistency of its non-vintage wine. Perrier-Jouet's reputation as one of the top houses
   comes from the sheer quality of its Grand Brut and they are justifiably proud of its long track
   record, as they were the very first house to make a "Brut" champagne back in 1854.
   It has a pale but luminous golden yellow colour with lively, gracious bubbles. Fleeting floral
   aromas with warmer notes, dominated by green apples, pineapple and white peaches. On the
   palate it is impetuous with cheerful vitality that floods the palate and is sustained by a
   persistent stream of sprightly bubbles, rich flavours of fresh butter, brioche and shortbread
   reach a natural balance.

03 Perrier-Jouët Blason Rosé NV                                                                          £59.00
   The intense, luminous colour is salmon-pink with coppery highlights. The abundant
   effervescence forms a fine, steady stream of bubbles. Elegant aromas of raspberries, wild
   strawberries and rose petals, the aromatic richness is reflected in a full, powerful, melting
   flavour which creates an impression of silk. Finally, hints of red fruits and tender flavours of
   citrus provide a pleasant freshness.

04 Perrier-Jouët 'Belle Epoque' 1998                                                                    £110.00
   This bottle holds Perrier-Jouet's most remarkable Champagne and one of the world's best
   known prestige cuvees. The success story began with the discovery of a bottle designed by
   Emile Galle in 1902. The bottle was so strikingly beautiful that Perrier-Jouet resolved to fill it
   with a prestige champagne. The best grands crus from the Cote des Blancs, were blended to
   make a subtle, elegant, refined Champagne.

05 Perrier-Jouët 'Belle Epoque' Rosé 2002                                                               £120.00
   Cuvee Belle Epoque Rosé is Perrier-Jouet's emblem which has become one of the most
   esteemed prestige cuvees in the world. The transparency of the magnificent bottle, with its
   Emile Galle floral decor, reveals its attractive pink tints.
   This is a delightful, gentle wine, with all the qualities of a great pink Champagne that offers
   both roundness and vinosity: elegance, finesse, delicacy and subtle fruity aromas. An
   attractive, salmon-pink colour and fine, persistent bubbles. Very elegant aromas of red fruits:
   wild strawberries and redcurrants, with notes of honey and baked bread in the finish. On the
   palate it well-balanced and sustained and its great complexity reveals excellent length and
   power, while retaining a certain delicacy and freshness.

38 Salon Les Mesnil Cuvée S1 1996                                                                       £210.00
   Wouldn't it be lovely if we could drink Salon Le Mesnil every day? This is an incredibly
   beautiful, sophisticated, lavishly appointed bubbly with an exquisite blend of aged yeast notes
   smelling of lightly toasted brioche layered atop scents of vanilla, Meyer lemon, chalk and
   minerals all in the most seamless and creamy of fashions. Its mousse is smooth but energetic
   and comes with appropriately pinpoint-sized bubbles. Sporting all the finesse that Blanc de
   Blancs can manage yet rewardingly deep and rich in flavor, this wine is easily the most
   impressive bottling in this go-round of world-class bubblies.

49 Mumm Brut Cordon Rosé NV                                                                              £49.00
   Made from 60% Pinot Noir 22% Chardonnay 18% Pinot Meunier this is a complex, fresh, yet
   powerful blend in which the Pinot Noir provides not only colour, but also strength and
   personality. Pinot Meunier, 18%, contributes all its liveliness and fruitiness to this cuvée,
   whilst the finesse and elegance of 22% Chardonnay gives this Champagne its final balance.
   The nose has rich, intense aromas in which red fruit characteristics stand out - the slight
   presence of caramel and vanilla are a reminder of the Cordon Rouge influence. On the palate
   the attack is lively and perfectly balanced, reflecting the strong personality of the Pinot Noir;
   flavours of strawberry, redcurrants and toast come to the fore, whilst the finish is dry and

66 Louis Roederer 'Cristal' 2000                                                                        £220.00
   The Ultimate Champagne for Toasting successes, this luxurious elixir is highly sought after.
   Cristal’s signature bottle clearly shows off the lustrous pale gold appearance of this wine. An
   intensely floral bouquet fragrant with almonds, hazelnuts and wild flowers is complemented
   by a touch of acidity to mark a finish of elegant persistence. Light and fresh, this is
   undoubtedly a Champagne of admirable magnitude with time.

68 Moët & Chandon 'Cuvée Dom Perignon' 1998/99                                                          £149.00
   The best Dom P since at least 1990 and probably long before...this cuvée is extraordinarily
   open and ripe - it hits the palate with such force it is easy to confuse its ripeness with
   sweetness but then, in Dom P style, it tightens up immensely and finishes with great race and
   refreshing dryness.
