Pierson Whitaker Premier Cru Millesime Reserve Brut Champagne, NV
Fresh, lively mid-palate citrus and notes of ginger and riper fruits, with a well-integrated mousse and plenty of biscuit depth. The extra-lees ageing really shows, giving the wine a complexity, balance and softness.Really super stuff.

What's the difference between Prosecco and Champagne?
Champagne is a sparkling wine made in the region of Champagne of France. These are made with Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier grapes using a method called the 'Traditional Method' and they are usually around £30+ for a good entry-level.
Prosecco is a sparkling wine made in the Veneto region of Italy around the city of Treviso about 15 miles North of Venice. It's made with Prosecco (Glera) grapes. The method that the winemakers use is called the 'Tank Method' and you'd expect to pay as little as £9 for a entry-level Prosecco.
