Champagne in Club Lounges

Hello

What are the current champagne offerings in club lounges? I couldn't find an answer on the champagne thread

I'm assuming nothing special, since they keep the bottles elsewhere and only produce it by the glassful on request, if you manage to flag down a random member of staff...

The self-pour wine seems a better bet in my experience.

Pretty sure it's Castelnau in LHR T5 Galleries.

Depends what lounge you're talking about! The offering is different in lounges throughout the network.

Gatwick - I have no idea about the Club lounge since as has been remarked, it is only produced in glasses. It used to be Tattinger in North Terminal but I have a suspicion that those days are gone. On my last visit I had to turn it into a Buck's Fizz. Its Henriot in F, which is another downgrade IMO.

In which case the Club lounges are offering a far superior NV Champagne to the mediocre F lounge vintage offer. I would be incredibly (and very pleasantly) surprised, if it were one of my favourite Champagnes that was being served.

Sadly I suspect not.

The lounge at IAD (Washginton Dulles) does not offer champagne at all, either on request or in the Club World sleeper service pre-flight dinner.
Last week they had a german sparkling wine - very disappointing indeed.

Its not champagne

Was in BA lounge at Manchester last week.
Asked for a glass of champagne from one of the lounge staff and waited by their kitchen door for it as had not taken a seat yet.
As the door swung open and closed with other staff members entering and exiting it was clear that they were serving M&S Cava.
Its quite an easy bottle to spot!
