A champagne that really shines for the price, it's a classic blend of chardonnay, pinot meunieur and pinot noir, it's lively and bright with a toasty, fruity freshness from start to finish.

One to perk up the palate before the countdown begins, there's apple pie and vanilla on the nose with nice rounded body and a long, clean finish.
