Distinguished by legend, loved as the elixir of joy – Champagne is hard to surpass. A magic drop which needs no translation, Champagne’s longstanding allure stems from a historic synonymy with royalty, elegance and sophistication.
Today, Fontayne Selections is focused on broadening the vision of Champagne beyond the age-old lust for luxury. Instead, we’re showcasing the true beauty of Champagne – the fact it really is suitable for any (and all!) occasions. Champagne can be complex and rich, or simple and fresh. It may be dry, or it can be sweet. With such an abundance of flavour, why wait to enjoy life’s simple pleasures? Join us as we bring some of France’s most iconic drops to Australian tables!
Fontayne is incredibly proud to bring new, exclusive offerings to the Australian table from benchmark producers in the world's most iconic regions. Julien Craeye, Director
