WINE REVIEW

I’m really impressed with both vintages of the Blanc de Blancs I tried at Bluebell, and whilst the 2010 just had the edge, this was also fantastic.

Nose is really rich, lots of English apple freshness, hints of stone fruit, citrus and lovely yeasty notes thanks to extensive lees aging.

There’s a really refined elegance in this wine, with a lovely rich baked pastry palate, big dose of apple and hints of ripe sweetness. The lengthy finish rounds off another excellent vintage.
