Charles Heidsieck, Rosé Réserve, Champagne, France NV

Best in Show, 97 points
The pink wave sweeping the wine world at present hasn’t left Champagne behind — but Champagne’s way with pink wine is as distinctive as the rest of its wine offer. You cannot make wines here which are vanishingly pale, petal-pretty and evanescent: there is just too much character, strike and drive on offer in Champagne’s raw materials. There are many great Champagne ripostes to the pink festival of restraint elsewhere, but this salmon-copper rose, with its cavalier autumn fruits and its sheer breadth and audacity of flavour, struck our judges as one of the most memorable. Long, bold flavours subside slowly, vinously and lingeringly in this great gastronomic rose wine.

Charles Heidsieck, Blanc de Blancs Brut, Champagne, France NV

Platinum, 97 points
£22.50 (half bottle) / £69.95 (gift box)
A seductive toasty, ginger and Seville orange nose; plenty of character, plenty of weight and so much elegance, lift and eloquence too; fruit singing here. Lovely balance and weight; pleasing in many different ways. Stunner!

Gusbourne, Blanc de Blancs Brut, Kent, United Kingdom 2016

Platinum, 97 points
Taut and elegant with a fine mousse. Hawthorn and elderflower give way to crisp green apple and quince characters. The palate explodes with buttered brown toast and thickly spread lemon curd. Super crisp and long.

Ambriel, Rosé Brut, West Sussex, United Kingdom 2015

Silver, 91 points
Bright ripe strawberry and rhubarb aromas. Full and long with tangy, maturing flavours and a refreshing finish.

Charles Heidsieck, Blanc des Millénaires Brut, Champagne, France 2006

Silver, 94 points
White toast and sourdough opens the show; flowers behind. This hums along with quite a spritzy motor. Long and luxuriant.

Charles Heidsieck, Réserve Brut, Champagne, France NV

Silver, 91 points
Nose of hazelnut, Macadamia and lemongrass. Pretty lemon-driven autolysis; fennel, ginger stem and a touch of slate. Very complete.

Piper-Heidsieck, Cuvée Brut, Champagne, France NV

Bronze, 89 points
£22.50 (half bottle)
A green smoky nettle note with some enamouring sweetness coming in behind. Light palate of apples and minerals with a zippy finish.


Château-Fuissé, Tête de Cuvée, Pouilly-Fuissé, Burgundy, France 2019

Silver, 92 points
Rich, intense peach and apricot aromas. Powerful, complex and textured, with sharp acidity and roasted nut character. Long spicy finish.

Oenops, Vidiano, Greece 2019

Silver, 92 points
Ripe quince with toasted almonds and mineral freshness. Creamy texture with mouthwatering freshness leads to a long length. Very well made.

Cantina Terlano, Vorberg Pinot Bianco, Alto-Adige Terlano Riserva, Trentino-Alto Adige/Südtirol, Italy 2018

Silver, 91 points
Enticing aromatics of dried apricot, bay leaf and spiced pineapple lead to a palate laced with exotic mango and spice.

Soalheiro, Alvarinho, Monção e Melgaço, Vinho Verde, Portugal 2020

Silver, 91 points
Sweet citrus on the nose and palate with ripe yellow peach and nectarine flavors, juicy acidity and succulent greengage on the finish.

Estate Argyros, Cuvée Evdemon, Santorini, Aegean Islands, Greece 2017

Silver, 91 points
A very driven lemony Assyrtiko on the nose, showing a hint of beeswax and toasted cashew texture evolution on the palate. Linear and composed, this is an excellent Santorini.

Dandelion Vineyards, Enchanted Garden Riesling, Eden Valley, Australia 2020

Silver, 91 points
Racy, delicate and long, loaded with mouth-watering lime zest, bath salts, toasted brioche and a nod of ginger.


Oenops, Limniona, Greece 2019

Gold, 96 points
Sweet red fruit on the nose, dried flowers, sweet spices and stony minerals, raspberry and cherry. Vibrant and vivacious on the palate with gorgeous lavender, wild blueberry and strawberry fruit. Compact, taut and really well put together.

Henschke, Johann’s Garden, Barossa Valley, South Australia, Australia 2018

Silver, 94 points
Smooth and effortless, comprising a seamless combination of wild, brambly berries, red earth, thyme and subtle spices. Generous but focused.

Henschke, Keyneton Euphonium, Barossa, Australia 2016

Silver, 94 points
Boasts an appealingly sapid texture, with silky blueberry, cassis, star anise and syrupy glace cherry. A joyous wine which goes on and on.

Henschke, Henry’s Seven, Barossa, Australia 2019

Silver, 91 points
Black cherry and plum nose, with a violet edge and lifted bramble notes. Interesting blend which shows off the fruit and delivers an attractive balanced wine with a soft finish.


Donnafugata, Ben Ryé, Passito di Pantelleria, Sicily, Italy 2018

Platinum, 98 points
Rich and waxy notes of dried orange, crème caramel, dried banana, marmalade and mango. Enticing with an explosion of ripe fruit on the palate, luscious with a vibrant balanced acidity.
