Chapel Down’s Kit’s Coty vineyard has led the way for English Chardonnay with top class still and sparkling wines. The 2014 vintage Blanc de Blancs feels a step up on its well-reviewed predecessor.
The latest Kit’s had an immediately appealing nose. Green orchard fruit, pear and green apple with the opulence of ripe, juicy peach, immediately leapt out of the glass.
This wine absolutely impressed on first taste, combining zingy English youth with that familiar Kit’s Coty ripeness and richness. Baked apple pudding and ripe stone fruit flavours set the stage for an incredibly approachable Blanc de Blancs.
Overall, this is one of the best sparkling wines I’ve had from Chapel Down to date.
