WINE REVIEW

Hattingley Valley’s inaugural Blanc de Blancs 2011 won the title of Best Blanc de Blancs in the World at the 2017 Champagne and Sparkling Wine World Championships. This, the follow-up 2013 vintage, has big boots to fill.

With a small amount of old oak barrel-fermentation (7%), the wine spent four years on its lees and was released with a dosage of 6g/l.

On the nose, the extra year this spent on lees is immediately apparent, as the Hattingley has quite a savoury aroma of toasted biscuit with baked apples and a hint of spice.

It’s soft and supple on the palate, with flavours of apple pudding, lemon and toasted bread. There are also hints of ripe stone fruit and biscuity complexity.
