Annual Champagne Offer 2017

Welcome to our Annual Champagne offer for 2017. This offer remains the most comprehensive and best way to buy Champagne in Australia with over 100 wines available at the best prices in the country.

This offer contains wines from the ‘big houses’ alongside the superb quality grower Champagnes! The offer for 2017 includes: Billecart-Salmon, Duval Leroy, Louis Roederer, Moet & Chandon, Pol Roger, Jacquesson, Ruinart, Taittinger, Charles Heidsieck, and Veuve Clicquot. This year we have some new additions to the collection including, Collet, Andre Jacquart, Bruno Paillard, Pierre Gimmonet not to mention some of Champagne’s finest grower producers including Andre Clouet, Lahert Freres, Larmandier Bernier, Veuve Fourney and Pierre Peters

The shift away from larger houses in champagne is now in full swing. The excitement in the champagne market is now focused on smaller, quality conscious producers who control production from vineyard through to bottled wine. The market enthusiasm for Grower Champagne is exciting and reflects consumers growing interest and appreciation of quality wine in general. This has also driven the larger houses to focus on improving the quality of their wines. There has never been a better time to drink Champagne from any house large or small.

For many of us Champagne is no longer ‘just a celebratory drink’, but a wine to be enjoyed on any occasion. Some producers are adopting a Burgundian attitude, believing their vineyards express site-specific terroir, and are bottling their wines accordingly. Indeed, the terroir in Champagne is like no other, and the wines of Champagne are like no other sparkling wine. This is an exciting time for Champagne as a region and for Champagne lovers alike!

As consumers have become more aware of the unique nature of Champagne they have also become more aware of the importance of shipping and storage. Lot numbers listed on champagne bottles indicate the date of disgorgement for NV Champagnes. The older the date the less fresh the wine. Similarly, storage and shipping are essential in guaranteeing quality. If stored or shipped incorrectly champagne loses its freshness and bead. Ultra-discounted champagnes are often the result of poor storage and shipping conditions, or old, out of condition stock purchased from overseas markets then on shipped again to Australia. All the wines shown here are shipped in climate controlled containers direct from the wineries themselves and purchased through their official Australian importers.

All the wines were tasted on the night and I have listed some of our personal favourites from both the large houses and growers below. Without doubt the “Big House” producer of the night was Pol Roger, all the wines from the Pol stable are brilliant with Pol Roger Vintage 2008 and Sir Winston Churchill 2004 being the top picks. The Best Newcomer was Lassalle: the wines are excellent and well priced with the Lassalle Cuvee Angeline 2009 and Lassalle Rose RGA NV being our favourites.

A special mention on vintages: many of the current vintage releases are from 2008 – one of Champagnes greatest vintages in recent memory. If you love Champagne and your favourite house has a 2008 release I would strongly advise you to buy up as the overall quality of 2008 vintage wines is exceptional.

As always we have done our best to ensure the most competitive pricing possible. Our prices are, we believe, some of the sharpest in the country. All wines from this offer are purchased directly through their Australian distributors and we do not sell grey market stock.

This is the largest and (we believe) the most nuanced champagne offer in the country – it has grown and been made possible with your support.
