Hungary

Made from the two great grapes of champagne, this dry sparkling wine with attractive melon
fruit and good balancing acidity comes from vineyards on the shores of Lake Balaton.
Excellent value – outside the Eurozone!

France

The stunning Crémant de Bourgogne from the Caves de Bailly comes from vineyards just outside the
champagne region,and I would defy anyone to spot the difference – except that it is a better drink
than many cheap champagnes – and the Crémant Rosé is every bit as good if not better –
my wife and I had it for our Silver Wedding party.

Italy

Prosecco has rapidly become Italy’s most popular sparkling wine: the Frizzante has a screw cap and is only
lightly sparkling while the Spumante is sealed with a champagne cork and is fully sparkling.  A very decent
cheaper alternative is the new Polloni Spumante which tastes far better than many Proseccos.

Spain

Our excellent Cava Castillo Perelada comes from a top producer. Clean, refreshing, but with balancing fruit, it
is astonishingly good value for money, and bears little if any resemblance to the soapy flavoured apologies for Cavas
in many of the multiples. The Castillo Perelada Rosado is an attractive rosé with good fruit flavour and was chosen out
of a cast of hundreds as the official reception drink for the Spanish royal wedding – quite an accolade. Gran Claustro Vintage
2011 is their flagship; mainly Pinot Noir and Chardonnay it has a rich biscuity depth of flavour.

Australia

For the Krug of sparkling wines you need look no further than bubbly from Taltarni. Their Brut Taché is a delicate
salmon-pink rosé that has the acidity and fruit balance that so many cheap Australian fizz patently lack.

England

The ‘Classic Cuvée’ beat Dom Pérignon in a blind tasting and was served by the Queen at her mother’s 100th birthday celebrations.
Made from a blend of the great champagne grapes of Chardonnay, Pinot Meunier and Pinot Noir, it is arguably the greatest sparkling  
wine from outside the champagne region. And don’t miss the supremely elegant ‘Non-Vintage Rosé’: - wonderful value.  
The ‘Blanc de Blancs’ the wine that famously was mistaken for Billecart-Salmon Grand Cru by 13 out of 14 French wine judges in Paris in April 2016.
