WINE REVIEW

A mature and developed Blanc de Noirs made from equal parts of Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier. Whilst the colour is still relatively pale with slight golden hues, the nose is deep and savoury.

The palate is where this wine particularly excels. Winemaker Dermot Sugrue’s trademark acidity is still shining through, but partnered with an accomplished and almost monstrous depth.

A distinctive deep crushed almond character seasons the ripe raspberry and red fruit flavours.

As broad and as deep as this wine gets, that acidity is what brings it all back together. A fascinating journey and a great example of what maturity can bring to English Sparklng Wine.
