WINE REVIEW

This wine replaces the existing Chapel Down Blanc de Blancs, which was, in my opinion, Chapel Down’s most consistently excellent Sparkling wine. Now a single vineyard release, the wine went through malolactic fermentation with 20% matured in oak. The resulting wine spent a further 3 years in the bottle on its lees for secondary ferment before release.

An elegant pale yellow colour in the glass with hints of golden richness. A wonderful mousse rests on the surface thanks to the streams of tiny refined bubbles.

Aromas of apple pie or perhaps even pear tart tatin. Warming richness with baked bread and hints of mineral and spice – it smells glorious.

On first taste, the immediate thing I noticed was the luxurious smooth texture. Silky, almost buttery with ripe orchard fruit flavours with a confident fresh cut through which draws you back in.
