Top 10 Chilling Halloween Champagnes

Halloween or ‘All Hallow’s Eve’ originated many years ago from ancient traditions but in more recent years Halloween has gained, lost and completely changed many of its connotations but we now have a cause for celebration in a month full of sudden dark mornings and grey skies so, who’s complaining?

Whether you’re attending or hosting this year’s costume party, spending the evening carving ghoulish faces into pumpkins or enjoying a cosy night wrapped up watching horror films, it is always our aim to ensure that any kind of occasion is filled to the brim with plenty of Champagne. For this reason exactly, we have created a list of our Top 10 Halloween Champagnes that will add a little chill to any kind of plans you may have for this 31st October.

  • Ayala Brut Majeur Champagne 75cl – This Champagne is beautifully elegant with a firm, chalky edge and mineral, mouth-watering flavours on the palate. The honeyed and biscuit notes make this a delicious wine to curl up with this Halloween.
  • Moet & Chandon Grand Vintage 2012 Champagne 75cl – An enticingly fragrant, autumnal nose of fresh walnuts, hazelnuts and biscuits lead to ripened fruits such as pear, white peach and nectarine. One to really enjoy and savour in your favourite company.
  • Veuve Clicquot Extra Brut Extra Old Champagne 75cl – This unique Champagne is made entirely with reserve wines from six vintages from 1988 to 2010. Fine bubbles flow continuously in this very dry style of Champagne creating an outstanding wine to really impress your fellow party-goers with this Halloween.
  • Beau Joie Demi-Sec Champagne Bertrand Senecourt 75cl – Presented in a black limited edition bottle inspired by the armour that the knights of France once wore to defend their kingdom, this Champagne is a real crowd-pleaser. The black suit keeps the Champagne at the correct temperature for up to 2 hours so no need for melting ice buckets all night long! This is a sweet Champagne tinged with pink highlights and an elegant, youthful palate.
  • Armand de Brignac Ace of Spades Blanc de Blanc 75cl – Not only does this Champagne really look the part for Halloween celebrations but its incredible bouquet, structure and lingering finish will send shivers down your spine! A genuine expression of Chardonnay grapes and a true experience of luxury.
  • Salon Blanc de Blanc le Mensil Champagne 2002 Vintage 75cl – The 38th Vintage ever released from this very small Champagne House. Pure, precise and extremely rare creating the perfect Champagne to open at a smaller gathering in order to truly savour its complex nature and mesmerising qualities.
  • Krug Clos D’Ambonnay 2000 Vintage Champagne 75cl – Last, but certainly far from least is this expression of a unique walled plot of Pinot Noir harvested in 2000. Rich flavours of tarte tatin, pastry and cream make for a Champagne experience like no other, especially when paired with seafood or shellfish at a Halloween dinner party.
