Top 10 sparkling wines of 2018

7 Quartet, Roederer Estate, Anderson Valley, USA, NV, blanc and rosé 

It is a little-known fact among consumers in the UK at least that Champagne Louis Roederer – the maison that makes famous prestige cuvée Cristal – has a sparkling wine operation in California.

Based in the Anderson Valley, the producer brings its sparkling wine savoire-faire to this relatively cool-climate US region, and the results are brilliant. Indeed, this sparkling wine consistently outperforms fizz from all corners of the world, including Champagne, within its price band.

Expect something creamy and fresh like Champagne, but with a core of riper fruit than you’d find from Roederer’s Brut from France.

And their Pinot dominant rosé is a benchmark for great New World fizz too.

Approximate retail price, blanc: £25 and £26 for the rosé
