Fizz. Henners 2011 Brut Vintage, England £34
I have yet to be properly convinced by our ability to produce great still wine but we do make some jolly nice sparklies and this is right up there with the best. Poised and elegant with delicate little bubbles and a fine mousse this is world class stuff.
