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.

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.
