Oz Clarke, Christelle Guibert and Andy Howard MW tasted and rated the wines, and their full tasting notes and scores on the best 75 wines were initially published for Decanter Premium members and magazine subscribers.

Below, we’ve unlocked the top sparkling wines from the tasting so that notes and scores are freely available. Look out for more articles from this tasting this in the next fortnight.
