I have worked at the Wine Society for around five years and in this time I have been lucky enough to try a number of sparkling wines. The pick of the bunch, in my opinion, is our own Saumur. The blend is chenin blanc with a little cabernet franc, and the result is an approachable, fruity, dry (but not too dry) fun fizz.
It is at home both as an aperitif and with perhaps more foods than you would think (personal favourite: fish and chips!). When asked for a recommendation for a family wedding in August, there was no competition!
