However, it’s always a good idea to check the label or contact the producer to ensure that there are no additional ingredients or processes that might introduce gluten.

Additionally, if you have gluten sensitivity or Coeliac disease, it’s advisable to consult with a healthcare professional for personalised advice.

We are big fans of champagne!

My husband Joe and I are big fans of champagne, so it was a huge relief to find that champagne is indeed gluten free. We have tried many champagnes together over the years, but my favourite has remained the Bollinger Special Curvée.

Perhaps this isn’t just because it has a delicate and lovely taste, but also because I was a big fan of Absolutely Fabulous, and Edina Monsoon (Jennifer Saunders) always kept her fridge well stocked with Bollinger Special Cuvée champagne!

I will leave you with a quote from Edina herself on the topic of champagne:

I don’t want more choice, I just want nicer things!
