Four Golds for this superb artisan Champagne that held its own in competition against big names Bollinger and Veuve. Pure Pinot Noir, vinified white and aged three years on lees, it is rich and creamy with toasty ripe fruit and complexity.

Dubbed as the “Princess of Champagne” by the press, Virginie Tattinger worked alongside her father in the world-famous Tattinger Champagne empire for 21 years. But she left in 2006, now makes excellent Champagne in her own right.
The Chopin Brut rosé is a classic, fuller bodied Champagne of fine quality from artisan growers Didier and Karine Chopin. A fruity, toasty Blanc de Noirs style, it has ripe peach and apple, brioche and floral aromas with the tiniest of bubbles.

The Champagne region grows three grapes, two red – Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier – and one white – Chardonnay. Blanc de Blancs is made only from Chardonnay and, as Hugh Johnson says, it therefore has “great grace and less weight than traditional Champagne”. Laithwaite’s is a tip-top example which has been expertly created for us by a superb cellar in Vertus, one of Champagne’s finest villages. This particular cuvée is 100% Premier Cru vineyard fruit and was matured for 30 months before release – double the required minimum – to ensure a luxurious, toasty biscuit character. It’s ideal for special occasions, on its own or with smoked salmon canapés.
