Greatly enjoyed by us on previous occasions, purchased as a gift on this occasion and enjoyed just as much by the recipient. A sparkling wine that always pleases.

The service has always been first rate. However, on the odd occasion when my delivery was slow in coming, Sebastien has always acted immediately to remedy the situation!

I like Yapp for their more unusual wines. I appreciate their comments on what food would match the wine best. I look for food matching before I buy.

I've been a regular customer for more years than I care to count and have always liked Yapp's range of wines which are individual, sometimes quirky, generally interestingly full of terroir and a wonderful contrast to blandly commercial supermarket lines.

What others think of this wine...

Reviewed in The Independent says:

Yapp has uncovered a gem that sparkles in its Domaine Collin, Crémant de Limoux Selection NV, richly yeasty and as teasingly frothy as a young champagne.

Anthony Rose, The Indepedent says:

This excellent southern French sparkling wine is one of the best sub-£10 fizzes on the market. It’s a bottle-fermented blend of four-fifths pinot noir and a fifth chardonnay and is rich in champagne-like biscuity personality with a suitably creamy mousse and lively tang that will grace any festive occasion.
