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 always find the customer service friendly and efficient.
good quality wines at a price you'd expect.
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.

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.
