WINE REVIEW

WINE OF THE MONTH: NOVEMBER 2017

A blend of 82% Pinot Noir and 18% Pinot Meunier from Furleigh Estate in Dorset.

This youthful Blanc de Noirs impresses with its gushing, plentiful bubbles and light golden tones.

Aromas are abundant and vibrant, with notes of red apple, peach and feminine floral tones that bring a certain elegance.

Classic Blanc de Noir character to taste; a punchy tangy red berry bite with vibrant citrus and red currant. Then, a soft and supple mid taste that brings out pronounced flavours of soft ripe stone fruit, enhanced by a slightly higher dosage (10.3g/L) than some.

The finish entertains with its tangy citrus peel, bitter almond and hints of honey and spice complexity.

This wine’s depth and structure makes it a fantastic and versatile pairing for food, why not let it grace your Christmas dinner table? I think it would be delightful with a shellfish starter, or perhaps on boxing day with sumptuous cold turkey and leftover pigs in blankets?
