Scottish Daily Mail - - EDEN CONFIDENTI­AL -

one of the (very) many lovely things about cham­pagne is that it comes in so many styles. This is a Blanc de noirs, mean­ing it’s made only from black cham­pagne grapes — in this case 100 per cent pinot noir — so it’s more ripe and round than lean and serene. And it’s the juici­ness that makes it more a lip-smacker than a cheek-sucker, and a great crowd pleaser.

Made ex­clu­sively for waitrose by Alexan­dre Bon­net, a bril­liant pro­ducer down in the south of the Cham­pagne re­gion.

Waitrose Blanc de Noirs Brut NV, £17.99 un­til De­cem­ber 3 (nor­mally £23.99)
