Non Vintage Champagne

Non vintage Champagne is made by blending together wines from several different years. This combination of older and younger wines, as well as wines from better and lesser years, allows the blender to produce a constant house style year after year.

  • “Cuvée Léonie” Brut N.V., Canard-Duchêne, 12% vol, 37.5cl

    “Cuvée Léonie” Brut N.V., Canard-Duchêne, 12% vol, 37.5cl

    CH24

    Named after Léonie Duchêne, one of the founders of the company, “Cuvée Léonie” is reserved for independent wine merchants and the world’s finest restaurants – we have listed it for several years and it has been our House Champagne since 2011.

     

    The blend is 50% Pinot Noir, 25% Pinot Meunier and 25% Chardonnay with reserve wine accounting for a significant proportion of the total (25%). Extended ageing in the cellar (3 years) adds depth and complexity.

     

    “All the elements are there: the buttery brioche aromas with top floral notes, the depth of flavours and the finish. It’s the way that it’s all presented that sets it apart. ‘There’s a driving blast of fine mousse, a powerfully zesty mid-palate, and it all develops into a long dry finish”

    Thiénot Brut N.V., 12.5% vol, 37.5cl

    CH20

    “Founded in 1985, Champagne Thiénot is the new kid on the champagne block and something of a trade secret. I came across the Brut NV the other day and was immediately smitten. A blend of 45% Chardonnay, 35% Pinot Noir and 20% Pinot Meunier, it is light, delicate and fresh with hints of apple and quince – the perfect apéritif.”

  • Louis Roederer “Brut Premier” N.V., 12.5% vol, 75cl

    Louis Roederer “Brut Premier” N.V., 12.5% vol, 75cl

    CH12

    A blend of 40% Pinot Noir, 40% Chardonnay, and 20% Pinot Meunier, Brut Premier comprises wine matured in oak tuns produced from fruit from various crus selected by Louis Roederer. Aged for 3 years in Louis Roederer’s cellars and then left for a minimum of 6 months after dégorgement (disgorging).

     

    The freshness, finesse, and brightness of Brut Premier make it the perfect wine for festive occasions. Its structured texture, richness, and length are distinctly winey. It is a full, complex wine that is both rich and powerful, whilst remaining a great classic”

  • Pol Roger “Brut Réserve” NV, 12.5% vol, 75cl

    Pol Roger “Brut Réserve” NV, 12.5% vol, 75cl

    CH07

    Pol Roger Brut Réserve is a blend in equal parts of the three champenois grape varieties: Pinot Noir, Pinot Meunier and Chardonnay, from 30 different crus (vineyard sites) from at least 2 vintages with an additional 25% older reserve wine added.

     

    The different varieties come from distinct areas within the Champagne region.

     

    The Pinot Noir brings structure, body and power and is mainly produced from some of the best crus of the Montagne de Reims to the north of the region whilst the Pinot Meunier (ensuring freshness, roundness and fruitiness) is from several crus from the more central Vallée de la Marne and from the Epernay area.  Finally, the Chardonnay, (providing aromatic complexity, finesse, elegance and lightness) comes from Epernay and some of the best crus of the southern Côte des Blancs.

     

    After four years ageing in Pol Roger’s cellars in Epernay, its style combines complexity, balance and distinction. A delightful balance of power and elegance. Maybe the wine trade’s favourite NV, certainly mine!

  • Pol Roger “Rich” NV, 12.5% vol, 75cl

    Pol Roger “Rich” NV, 12.5% vol, 75cl

    CH11

    Rich” NV from Pol Roger is a precise replica of their Brut Réserve NV being blended from 30 still base wines from different vineyards, different vintages and the three main grape varieties which dominate the champagne region: Pinot Noir, Pinot Meunier and Chardonnay, in equal proportions.

     

    What makes Rich NV different from Brut Réserve is the increased dosage of 34 g/l of sugar which makes it the perfect drink for  occasions when something a little less dry is called for.

    “Founded in 1985, Champagne Thiénot is the new kid on the champagne block and something of a trade secret. I came across the Brut NV the other day and was immediately smitten.

    Champagne Thiénot have teamed up with Oliver Rizzo, the internationally renowned street artist who works under the name ‘Speedy Graphito’, to design a striking, limited edition magnum of Thiénot Brut. This is the second edition of this limited production, special bottling.

     

    This somewhat unusual partnership came about when Oliver met Garance Thiénot who, with her brother Stanislas, runs Maison Thiénot. Garance was brought up in a strong artistic tradition and has developed an intense interest in street art. She had been following the work of Speedy Graphito for several years and noted that there were parallels between the development of his work and that of Champagne Thiénot. The urban art movement took root in France in the 1980s and was growing just as Champagne Thiénot, created in 1985, began its expansion.
