WINE REVIEW

Cuvée Gerard Hoffnung is a blend of trinity of classic Champagne varieties; 60% Chardonnay, 22% Pinot Noir and 18% Pinot Meunier.

The 2009 pours with slightly less aggression than the lively Seyval; the bubbles are fine and elegant, complementing the wine’s light golden colours.

The nose is richer and more complex, combining baked apple and caramelised apricot notes with hints of toasted biscuit and nuts.

The texture and weight developed through the lengthy lees ageing delivers a full and sublimely rounded sensation in the mouth.

Ripe stone fruit flavours with roasted brown sugar and citrus zest cut through, finishing with a bitter almond complexity.
