Whether it’s drinks before dinner, an evening buffet or a birthday toast, the fine, delicate bubbles of a Crémant de Loire or a Saumur really are a must. From the slightly tangy notes of a rosé to the silky feel of a white brut, there’s a perfect variation for every occasion.

Treat your guests’ taste buds, with a rich, sweet wine like Coteaux du Layon Premier Cru Chaume

Or dare to opt for something simple, like a Cabernet d’Anjou – a delightfully congenial wine to drink with friends
