"Hold the front page! We’ve taken on a Champagne. Yes, Champagne, from France. Yes, France. Once you’ve picked yourself off the floor, have a taste of it. Maurice Vessselle is a grower from Bouzy (a village name much beloved by British consumers) who makes artisanal wines from his own Grand Cru vineyards. The wines have character. Grand Cru Cuvée Réservée Brut is a powerful, fresh wine full of crunchy confit fruit, very bright and full flavoured, with plenty of rich Pinot notes. The Rosé is succulent and fresh and would be terrific with food – imagine a glass of this with a first course." Michael Palij MW
