NWTW #53 – B is for Blanc De Blancs!!!

France, New Wine This Week, New Zealand, South Africa, Spain, Sparkling, Whites

week 51 english and champagne

What a week of swings in the polls! At first it looked as though Barolo was running away with it, but a late surge from Blanc De Blancs takes it with just shy of 25% of the vote! So get the deep fryer ready, it’s time for some bubbles to take us out of January 🙂

Over the week we’ll have a chat about what it means for a wine to be labeled Blanc De Blancs, how it’s made, and where. There’s also that all important food pairing post to come later in the week too.

For now though, here’s the picks:

Majestic Wine
Lindauer Special Reserve Blanc de Blancs, NV @ £11.99

Marks and Spencer
Single Estate Chardonnay Cava, 2010 @ £14.00

Sainsbury’s Blanc De Blancs Brut Champagne, NV @ £20.00

Spirited Wines
Champagne Henriot Blanc De Blancs NV @ £39.62

Graham Beck Brut, Blanc De Blancs NV @ £15.00
