Fizz for parties

12th November 2015

Duval-Leroy Fleur de Champagne NV Premier Cru SAVE 1/3 at £19.99/75cl (was £29.99, offer ends 6 Jan 2016)
This is a cheese straw with bells and whistles, so it deserves something special to accompany it. The Duval- Leroy has the elegance you'd expect from a fine Champagne, with lemony, oaty notes and a very fine hazelnut ping.

Drink it with...Cheese & chive pastry straws
Goodbye to bland cheese pastries, hello to homemade straws with a difference.

1. Nicolas Feuillatte Vintage 2006 SAVE 1/3 at £21.99/ 75cl (was £32.99, offer ends 8 Dec)
With Champagne, the smaller the bubbles the better, and the ones in this are tiny and busy. If it was a racehorse, it would have `fine lines': it's sleek, elegant, and adds decorum to a crazy cheese straw.

2. Cuvée Royale Brut NV Crémant de Limoux £11.99/75cl
Sparkling wines from Limoux are said to predate Champagne. This one is rich, dry and biscuity, with a citrus character.

3. Codorníu Rosado Brut NV Cava 25% OFF at £6.99/75cl (was £9.49, offer ends 30 Dec)
Pink fizz makes any party sparkle, and this one is a beautifully vibrant example, made from the traditional Catalan grape varieties, Monastrell, Garnacha and Trepat.

4. Pol Roger Brut Réserve NV £40.99/75cl
Beautifully balanced, with great depth of flavour, Pol Roger is a favourite with those who like a full, rich style of Champagne. Phillip's choice.
