This is a ‘magnified’ version of our Blanc de Blancs NV. The wine has been ageing on lees since 2015, and is a stunning example of traditional method English sparkling chardonnay with extended lees ageing. The base harvest of 2014 was a great harvest which produced some fabulous vintage wines. This wine is a blend of that harvest and older reserve vintages which we held back in the winery, which give added complexity and depth to this serious treat of a wine.
This is a rich and intense wine. The nose is full of baked apricots, vanilla bean and lemon tart (from the glaze to the pastry)! The body is full – the extended lees ageing imparting a textured feel and a wonderfully fine mousse. There are notes of brioche, sweet green apple and a long, buttery finish.
