What a fabulous line up with Rangitoto in the background! Celebrating their son’s baptism with delicious Champagne De Sousa 3A Cuvée. What a perfect day! Cheers!
Looks like someone has had a whole lot of fun here! Something about corks, the colour, the smooth texture and the fragrance of the champagne. I know people always become animated when they hear that certain “pop” that only a champagne bottle can make. I think it makes people happy and excited. If we were strict purists we wouldn’t really want that “pop” but I think sometimes it sets the mood and besides it’s fun. Nothing beats firing a cork from a bottle off the balcony grand prix style!
Earlier this year this Premier Cru NV champagne won Gold at the Sakura Woman’s Wine Awards in Japan. Congratulations Monmarthe!
This is certainly well deserved as this is a superbly sophisticated champagne oozing with style. Ok, if you haven’t guessed it, I confess to this being one of my favorites. It’s dry and delicious!
Congratulations to Rohan and Matt who were recently married. On their special day they served Champagne Secret de Famille and this is what they have to say about Three French Vines.
“We’re really glad to have enjoyed some Grower Champagne at our wedding earlier this year – we had a great experience dealing with Marie and Three French Vines and the Champagne Monmarthe went down deliciously! Marie was helpful and friendly and it was obvious she shares our love of bubbles! We knew we would enjoy each style in their range, but Marie made it easy to narrow down our selection, giving pointers on the grape blends and taste profiles as well as some interesting points on the growers and locations of each house. When we mentioned a particular champagne we had loved she looked into it and suggested one with a similar blend – which was the one we settled on for our big day! Delivery was quick and hassle free also. We’re pleased to have a few bottles left over…although we wouldn’t hesitate to try more from Three French Vines!”
Check out this article on this very topic, that non-fizzy champagne has such a long, if largely forgotten, history is part of the reason the region of Champagne is returning to its roots. Our super star Mother and Daughter team, Bernadette and Elodie at Marion-Bosser feature. http://www.travelandleisure.com/food-drink/wine/bubble-free-champagne
The ultimate fantasy! Even more delightful if you’re a Rosè fan.
We are thrilled to introduce Champagne Marion-Bosser to you. This Mother and Daughter champagne house produce award winning champagnes. Situated in Hautvillers which is renown for growing Premier Cru and also with the father of champagne, Dom Perignon, who resided at the Hautvillers Abbey.
Kathy and Trevor, champagne connisseurs from Mt Eden, recommended that we stock Marion-Bosser and they were so right. Thanks to Kathy and Trevor we are able to bring you this champagne. It’s a standout recommendation!
I am not exaggerating when I say these champagnes are exceptional and really worthwhile trying. The Extra Brut Blanc de Blanc is top-notch luxury! In 2015 this won the Chairman’s Trophy of “The Ultimate Wine Challenge” in New York and British Airways serve it in First Class.
The gorgeous Brut Tradition is my favorite. Tradition is the perfect name for the classic marriage of the Chardonnay and Pinot Noir. It’s full, harmonious and just delicious.
Obviously one bottle is not going to cut it with these two. Whether it’s Brut or Extra Brut I guarantee that you will be wowed with these two beauties!

Served at the Ritz Paris and several Michelin Star restaurants throughout France, New York and now New Zealand. Put on your smoking jacket, Edith Piaf and you’ll be at the Ritz too!
