A vibrant and elegant Blanc de Blancs, this first release from Hoffmann & Rathbone was aged for 44 months with only 2000 bottles being made.
The wine comes in a hand numbered bottle with a beautiful gold on black label.
The first thing I noticed when pouring was how bright and vibrant the nose was; green apples, lemon zest and baked pastry and yeasty notes really did fill the air.
On the palate, the journey begins with a dry mouth-watering acidity and crispness. The lemon flavours are really pronounced, super lengthy finish yeasty flavours and lovely mineral deposits.
This is so well structured, from that crisp bite to the light and creamy mouse and that tangy mineral filled finish – it’s an absolute joy to drink.
