Von Buhl is one of Germany’s oldest, most historic and exciting wine estates. Since 2013 they’ve had a new team in place, headed by former Bollinger winemaker Mathieu Kauffmann. Hence the gorgeous creamy complexity of this fine Champagne method fizz.
"Our tasting of Rieslings showed that the new regime is nailing it: these are truly brilliant wines"
Mathieu Kauffmann was the first non Champenois to be appointed head winemaker at Bollinger. He was also the first to resign, rather than retire, from this position. The reason: the remarkable quality of the Von Buhl vineyards – 8 Grands Crus and 6 Premiers Crus. Also, he was rather fond of Riesling! He knew he could make amazing wines there, including a Champagne method fizz. He started with a new team in 2013 and the results speak for themselves. Founded in 1849, the Von Buhl estate itself has an illustrious history, with its wines enjoyed in the most aristocratic circles. Since Mathieu’s arrival, the estate has become biodynamic and quality is phenomenal. The world said you couldn’t use Riesling in fine fizz – he has proved them wrong!

Laithwaite's began in 1969, when geography student Tony Laithwaite took a job washing bottles in Bordeaux ...

friends and neighbours at home, things went so well that hundreds of little wineries all around the world were soon
queuing to take part. Today we're the UK's No.1 home-delivery wine merchant, with over 1,500 wines to choose from
including red, white, rosé, Champagne, Prosecco, spirits ... you name it. Tony's still at it - and now really good
at washing bottles. Read more
