£3 off Jonathan Ray's 'all-time favourite "grower" champagne' - just £26.95 a bottle

In November, Spectator drinks editor Jonathan Ray ran an offer on hisall-time favourite “grower” champagne’, Henri Chauvet Blanc de Noirs Brut NV, with Private Cellar. Stocks ran out almost immediately, but we have splendid news – a new shipment has just landed so we can all fill our boots once again.  

Jonathan says: ‘One of the merriest stopson our inaugural Spectator Wine Club tour of Champagne last June was at Champagne Henri Chauvet in Rilly-la-Montagne, some 20 minutes or so outside Reims. Here, the proprietor/winemaker Damien Chauvet was bonhomie incarnate,happily opening every bottle in his range for us to enjoy. The unanimous favourite was the Henri Chauvet Blanc de Noirs Brut NV. A hand-picked, hand-riddled, long lees-aged blend of Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier, it’s full of toast, brioche and honey, and I genuinely can’t think of any other champagne I enjoy so much at such a good price. Indeed, I bought a double magnum on the spot. Photographic evidence on request.’

Private Cellar is honouring its November offer this month, with bottles priced at £26.95, down from £29.95. Delivery on 12 bottles or more is free to UK mainland addresses.
