English Sparkling Wine
Blend: The blend of Chardonnay (58%), Pinot Meunier (18%) & Pinot Noir (24%) was carefully developed under the guidance of our leading Champenois chef de caves, Hervé Jestin.
Tasting note: Nose rich and warm exuding Seville orange and brioche aromas, with hints of dried flowers and toasted hazelnuts. The palate is explosive, with mouthwatering acidity and dried apricot and citrus. The mouthfeel is a silky soft foam of tingling sparks. The finish shows undertones of vanilla and and salted caramel, ending again with that fresh, vivid, orangey tang. Very dry, long and immensely complex.
Ageing: Ready to drink now but will benefit from ageing.
Cost: £42.50 per bottle.
