Champagne is the No.1 celebration wine and there are few better than Laithwaite’s Brut Premier Cru Blanc de Blancs. Made exclusively from Chardonnay, it’s all about elegance and finesse, with just the right amount of background toasty complexity.
Beyond the Label

Complex white blossom, citrus and toasted brioche notes
Customers invariably ask: “What’s Blanc de Blancs Champagne and what makes it special?” 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 – a wonderful fizz made by one of the region’s leading independent Champagne houses, awarded numerous Golds. Using the reserve wines of 2007, 2008 and 2009, carefully blended, this Champagne was aged on its lees for four years, so has real toasty richness, complexity and length. Ideal for special occasions, on its own or served with a range of delicious canapés.
"Best Champagne I’ve ever tasted in this price range. First class! You won’t be disappointed!"
