Tasting Note: Our Wiston Estate Blanc de Noirs 2010 is made from 100% barrel-fermented Pinot Noir and aged on its lees for 8 years. Presented in its own black and gold gift box, this very special, limited edition English Sparkling wine is a favourite of ours. Coming from a benchmark year at Wiston, this rich and complex single vineyard wine is brimming with nectarines, strawberries and rhubarb, overlaid with delicious brioche, toasted hazelnut and savoury mineral notes.

“The 2010 Blanc de Noirs from Wiston, which was disgorged November 2018, consists of 100% barrel-fermented Pinot Noir. It has a lovely nose of strawberry, grilled walnuts and just a touch of honeycomb, maturity imparting a subtle honeyed aspect that is only revealed with aeration. The palate is well balanced with a lovely, fresh, slightly honeyed opening, joined by orange pith and mandarin notes later on. Lovely weight and balance. The finish is harmonious and persistent, with a dab of dried honey and orange zest lingering on the aftertaste. Wonderful.” Neal Martin, Vinous July 2020

"Tangy, focused and complex, this is fine, bready and long, with subtle red fruits and a mouth-watering finish." 
Tim Atkin MW, Three Wine Men May 2018

"This makes every bit of me tingle. Bring me a slice of champion cheese and I'm in heaven!"
 Olly Smith, Three Wine Men May 2018

"This rich, complex single-vineyard wine has aromas of apple and hints of strawberries, rhubarb and nectarines on the palate, along with brioche and nutty influences, with a return to fruitiness for the elegant finish. Made from barrel-fermented pinot noir, with unceasing fine bubbles, you know you’re drinking something very special right from the first sip. And yet this is their first ever vintage blanc de noirs. Don’t hang around though - only 3,000 bottles were made by this family-owned South Downs vineyard." 
Kate Hilpern, The Independent May 2018

“From its stunning golden colour to its compelling smoky aromas, this is arguably England’s finest Blanc de Noirs to date. Sumptuous and multi-layered, with spiced lemon acidity and rich savoury undertones, it shows enormous finesse and is an absolute joy to drink.” ‘Supreme Champion 2018’, ‘Top Sparkling Wine 2018’ & ‘Top Blanc de Noirs 2018’ WineGB Awards 2018, Country Life Magazine 30th May 2018

“What is there not to love about this wine? The stunning black and gold label oozes opulence, matching the amber gold nectar that sits inside the bottle waiting patiently for release.
The bubbles on this are fine and so very persistent, lifting the elegant aromas of toasted hazelnut, lemon zest with hints of fresh red berries and wild strawberries.
To taste, this wine is a masterclass in balance. It’s refined and demure like a vintage Grand Marques Champagne, paired with that driving English acidity that gives the wine huge presence and freshness.
[…] this may just be [Dermot’s] best wine to date, especially in the eyes of lovers of Pinot-based sparkling wines. A must try!”  
John Mobbs, Great British Wine December 2017
