Appearing as a wine with huge ambitions, the Hambledon Premiere Cuvée impresses with its navy blue label and the sleek Krug-like bottle.
Superfine bubbles and golden hues, the first impressions of what is inside the bottle do not disappoint!
One sniff of this blind and you would absolutely believe you were drinking a top Champagne from a big name producer. Rich biscuit and yeasty notes at the forefront, with baked apple, apricot and spice in the background.
And then there’s the palate – the racy and vibrant acidity strikes through. Then a fusion of baked orchard and dried stone fruit flavours, with hints of orange peel and baked pastry.
The overall weight and cohesion of this wine is fantastic, whilst its sublime length and complexity will never fail to impress.
