With the 2013 vintage poised to release imminently, I thought it was a good time to re-visit the superb Brut Cuvée 2010 from Jenkyn Place. A classic blend of 60% Chardonnay, 32% Pinot Noir and 8% Pinot Meunier.
Aromas of crisp orchard fruit and citrus with wafts of warm sweet pastry and ripe stone fruit – you just can’t wait to get stuck in!
This wine ticks all the right sensory boxes you want in a sparkling wine. Brilliant, bracing acidity – check! Sublime fusion of ripe orchard fruit and stone fruit flavours – check! Supple mousse with soft creamy textures and excellent integration – check!
All in all, a textbook example of well-judged structure and acidity from the master of high-octane English Sparkling wine that is Dermot Sugrue. The maturity also shines through and gives the wine excellent depth.

A fascinating journey and a great example of what maturity can bring to English Sparklng Wine.
Rich with citrus and nutty biscuit notes, with layered red berry hues throughout.
Light and fresh aperitif style with lots of red berry character.
This is an excellent Champagne-challenger with rich nose of vibrant citrus, stone fruit and yeasty notes.
