Bubbles anyone?

Calling all true lovers of champagne... and I mean proper champagne. The Wine Guide is presenting the ever popular ‘Bubbles Darling’ session at the Good Food & Wine Show in Adelaide.

I was lucky enough to try the Taittinger Brut Rosé, NV which was absolutely beautiful. Has anyone tried this champagne? It’s a beautiful pinkish colour and yes... very nice to enjoy with a little food!

Below are some of the wines that are on tasting at the Show:

Perrier Jouet Grand Brut, NV
Apart from the pretty label, this Non Vintage is a great example of consistent, refreshing and an all round approachable champagne.

Larmandier Bernier Blanc de Blancs, NV
Larmandier Bernier is what's called a 'grower producer' (or Récoltant-manipulant if you want to sound posh). 100% chardonnay, this is super fresh, crisp with a whole lot of personality

Taittinger Brut Rosé, NV
The original champagne house of choice for Mr James Bond, this is a more savoury style of Rose that is more suited to food ... though not essential (ahem)

Perrier Jouet Grand Brut, 1998
Expect a bit more richness and sophistication with this vintage version of PJ. Still, for a wine over 10 years old, its remarkably fresh.

G.H. Mumm Cuvee 'R Lalou', 1998
Yes, 'bling' is indeed the word for this champagne. Named after Mumm legend Rene Lalou, this special bottling comes from all grand cru fruit. Mind 'bottlingly' good!
