This was rated in the top 10 Champagnes for Christmas by The Independent: “A refreshingly crisp Blanc de Noirs – both fruity and toasty, with light floral aromas, a fine mousse, ripe stone fruit and toasty complexity – generously priced too.”

There’s been a phenomenal rise in the number of artisan Champagne makers in recent decades as more and more grape growers have risen to the challenge of crafting their own wines. Anthony Rose writes: “Champagnes made by local growers are not just affordable, but in many instances superior to the better known big brands.” Didier and Karine Chopin are based in the Marne Valley. They bottled their first Champagne in 1989, made from grapes grown on Karine’s family’s estate. Today they have an estate of their own. This Brut is made from the two black grapes of Champagne, Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier. Five years on lees have lent it considerable richness and complexity. As excellent with seafood dishes as it is on its own. Here in half size.
"Beautiful Champagne far superior to the better known big brands and great value for money!"
