Wine Bar Wine List Sparkling & Champagne

Fizz is fun! So put some bubbles in to your life with a glass or a bottle of the good stuff.

  1. Salazar Cremant de Limoux, NV, 12% 4.50 21.00
    Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, Chenin Blanc
    Limoux is home to the original sparkling wines long before Champagne got in on the act so we had to have one on here and when it tastes this lovely why the heck not. Made in the same method as Champagne this is a deliciously dry yet fruity wine with all that southern French sunshine bursting through. Classy stuff.
  2. Lunetta Prosecco Italy, NV, 11%, Vg 20.00
    I was almost tempted not to put this wine on here and not because it’s no good, because it is terrific at being what it should be, but rather because everybody does Prosecco and we’re trying not to be everybody. It’s not wine snobbery, it’s just that with the whole world of wine at our fingertips then shouldn’t we do something different? Well yes, and we do, so if you really, really want Prosecco then this is a bloody good drop, but what you really should be drinking is the Cremant above. At least we’re brave enough to say it.
  3. Lallier Grand Rose Brut Champagne NV, 11%, Vg 48.00
    Pinot Noir, Chardonnay
    I’m not saying that Lallier is one of the smaller Champagne houses but their marketing budget was spent on a road bike, built by a hotelier, from Scarborough. A far cry from the red carpet world of the bigger houses, but in part this is down to the fact that at Lallier their efforts are focused fairly and squarely on the wine. Only ever using Grand Cru fruit the wines are always built on strong foundations such as this rose. A pretty pale pink with exhilarating freshness and elegance it is aged for at least 36 months and this just intensifies the wow factor. Wild strawberries and raspberries on the palate lead to a very appealing softness. The bike is beautiful too, by the way.
  4. Taittinger Brut Reserve Champagne, France, NV, 12.5%, Vg 47.00
    Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, Pinot Meunier
    I once stood on the steps of Taittinger’s Chateau de la Marquetterie watching a solar eclipse with Monsieur Taittinger himself because that’s how life works as a Huddersfield shopkeeper. Now my affections for wine cannot be bought that easily and so my liking for this wine is based purely on the fact that it is downright decadent loveliness. Yes it’s a big name but it is also still a family owned business, just like we are, except we don’t own a chateau.
