Langton's Champagne Celebration Non-Vintage Six-Pack
This is the perfect Champagne collection for the party season.
The great house Champagnes are for those pomp and circumstance moments. Gosset, founded in Aÿ in 1584, remains a relatively small Maison even though oldest wine house in Champagne. Pol Roger has echoes of the imperial, the favourite Champagne of Sir Winston Churchill and one of the select houses to sport a Royal Warrant.
The growers are for those moments more intimate gatherings. These wines are made by those who grow them so we don’t see a house style rather the bottled expression of their approach in the vineyard. LeClerc Briant, Jacques Picard, Robert Moncuit (Grand Cru) and Vazart-Coquart & Fils (Grand Cru).

Located 150 km east of Paris, Champagne is the French wine region renowned for producing the finest, most rich and complex sparkling wines in the world. The elegance, longevity and racy acidity of these wines are attributed to the influence of the chalky soils of the region and the cool, marginal continental climate. The region spans an area of 35,000 ha and has 4 main growing areas, each favouring one of the three noble Champagne varieties; Pinot Noir, Chardonnay and Pinot Meunier. Champagne has a vineyard quality hierarchy based on the soils, aspect and overall quality of the grapes. Like Burgundy, these quality designations are allocated to the vineyards of the village. Of the 319 villages of Champagne, 17 have Grand Cru status and 44 villages are designated Premier Cru. All Champagne is produced by Traditional Method. The vast majority of Champagne is a blend of the three varieties and may also be a blend of several vintages producing the popular Non Vintage (NV) house styles. Top quality blends from exceptional years are sold as Vintage (Millésime) Champagne.
