Olly’s best pink fizz for Mother’s Day—
With Mother’s Day next Sunday, there’s a week to plan a treat of pink fizz. Happily, there’s a bottle for every budget. I raise my glass to Laurent-Perrier and Taittinger whose non-vintage sparklers are first rate. Or choose the lesser-known Delamotte Rosé Brut (12%) for £54 from corneyandbarrow.com – sublime from the top Grand Cru level. And while pink Prosecco is fun, the elegance of British bubbly is hard to beat.
OLLY’S PICK OF THE BUNCH
Prestige Cava Rosado Brut (12%), £10, Marks and Spencer (also via Ocado). Gorgeous fizz that feels like a fiesta in your face.
Bouvet Saumur Rosé Brut (12.5%), £13.99, Majestic. Soaring zing, full of fruit, this crémant is a steal at the price.
Bollinger NV Rosé (12%), £40, Morrisons. Grab this offer price! Made with over 85 per cent Grand and Premier Crus, it’s world class.
Charles Heidsieck Rosé Réserve (12%), £58, thefinestbubble.com. Next-day delivery for this splendidly silky pink fizz. Worth every penny – go for it!
WINE OF THE WEEK
Hoffmann & Rathbone Rosé Réserve 2011, (12%), £43, hoffmannandrathbonestore.co.uk. Rose gold, elegant finesse: this is sheer British brilliance. Cheers, Mum!
