Vilarnau Cava Brut N.V.
If you wanted a superb example of excellent value for money when it comes to bubbles, this is it! This, believe it or not, will give many Champagnes at $60-$70 a run for their money! Made from a blend of Macabeo, Parellada and Chardonnay which are fermented separately before blending, and then bottled and aged on its lees for 2 years which is longer than most Champagnes nowadays. The palate is smooth, silky and beautifully textured, with outstanding depth, power and beautiful refined bubbles. If you are unfamiliar with Cava, we strongly recommend that you try some. You will be impressed!

A. Chauvet N.V. Rosé
This majestic house situated just across Laurent Perrier, has been our exclusive import for many years, they produce a range of Champagnes from exclusively they own vineyards which is not always the case in Champagne. Their Cuvee Rose is made from Pinot Noir, light pink in colour with a bouquet of great freshness and wild strawberry. On the palate it is full flavoured yet showing lightness and delicate, wonderful refined bubbles, clean acidity and very refreshing.
A. Chauvet Brut N.V.
Most of you will know that in terms of value for money, this is as good as it gets! A Champagne of this quality doesn't always come at this price. Basically it delivers the quality of many other Champagnes at double the price, made from a Pinot Noir and Chardonnay blend from the Tour-sur-Marne (very close to Laurent Perrier) that has been aged on its lees, giving it a nutty, yeasty, and light citrus flavour. The delicate finish is crisp and dry with a lingering acidity. A wonderful wine that is best served well chilled. You could even add a dash of Cassis or Frambois to make a refreshing apéritif.
A. Chauvet N.V. Blanc de Blancs
Blanc de Blancs means that a Champagne or sparkling wine is made from 100% Chardonnay. This Champagne is also made from 100% Chardonnay sourced from some of the oldest and finest Grand Cru vineyards in the Champagne region. This particular style of Champagne results in a very powerful, full and dry wine. Flavours are more pronounced and robust with the classical "yeasty" tang that comes from the Chardonnay giving this bubbly a wonderful complexity. The bubbles are tiny and highly refined and the flavours will linger and last on your mouth well after each sip, all of which alludes to the quality of this wine. You will find much "branded" Champagne on the market that is of a similar quality to this wine retailing around $100 a bottle.
A. Chauvet Vintage 2008
2008 was an outstanding vintage by Champagne standards made from a blend of Chardonnay and Pinot Noir, it displays superb depth, concentration but all together refined and elegant with outstanding persistent bubbles. This is the sort of Champagne that does not spend a quarter of its budget on advertising and marketing. They are straight Champagne growers that have been making Champagne for the last 2 centuries. If you want a magnificent Champagne equal to any other vintage, try this! It’s as good, if not better, at a fraction of the price.
G.F. Cavalier Blanc de Blancs Brut N.V.
After being without it for almost 2 years, we welcome back this magnificent bubbly that has been with us for over 10 years. We get more requests for this than any other bubbly that we’ve ever stocked. And of course, once you try it, it’s quite understandable. It is an unpretentious, light, dry, very refreshing and crisp bubbly with lovely acidity, refined bubbles and ideal for big functions or just for the weekend! You can drink it on its own, you can mix it with orange juice, cassis etc. At the price it is unequal value for money.
Paul Louis Blanc de Blancs Brut N.V.
We also welcome back our beloved Paul Louis after being out of it for a long time. This is made from Chenin Blanc from the Loire Valley and in the Traditional Method of Champagne, first fermentation and second fermentation in bottle, yeasty, rich and full bodied, with lovely refined and tiny bubbles, long bead and lovely balance. A great substitute for Champagne at a fraction of the cost. Something to be enjoyed on its own or also with fish, anti-pasta etc.
