What we're pouring this Christmas ...

Meet a trio of exceptional Fortnum's bubbles all waiting to be popped this festive season

Of the many simple pleasures in life, enjoying a glass of Champagne must be one of the finest – the pop of the cork and the rush of bubbles always feels like a celebration.

Fortnum’s wine cellar contains some of the finest examples of Champagne and sparkling wine that anyone could want, from the modestly priced to the frankly extravagant. Well, it is Christmas after all.

Fortnum & Mason Brut Reserve

Our Brut Réserve is a blend of the three classic grape varieties - Pinot Noir, Pinot Meunier, and Chardonnay - and the dominance of black grape varieties offers roundness and complexity, while the Chardonnay provides elegance, with a wonderful note of toasty brioche on the finish. Full of freshness and beautifully crisp, it is a truly exceptional Champagne for open-air sipping.

Fortnum & Mason Rosé N.V

This unique Rosé cuvée is a blend of Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, and Pinot Meunier grapes, and is created using the Rosé d'assemblage' method, a patient process that gives the wine its distinctive blush colour, and creates real elegance and finesse on the palate.

Fortnum & Mason Blanc de Blancs Champagne

Estemeed winemaker Laurent Hostomme produces our Blanc de Blancs Champagne from his own vineyards, all located within the Grand Cru region of Chouilly. The blend is always 100% Chardonnay grapes and the taste is extremely elegant, with light floral notes and a refreshing acidity. A beautifully crisp tipple.
