WINE REVIEW

Noticeably different in character compared to the other Lyme Bay sparkling wines, this Blanc de Noirs has a slightly muted nose (compared to the Classic Cuvée) with light aromas of apple, toasted nut and delicate hints of cherry.

With the lowest residual sugar level of all four of the range, this wine feels very dry and perhaps a little green and youthful up front.

The mid taste however is much fuller. Hints of red fruit throughout, with red apples with a really nutty complexity. Dry bitter almond and cherry on the finish.

This feels like the building blocks of something fantastic and is arguably my favourite wine of the four thanks to its nuances and hidden depths. One to hold on to as it will evolve into something develop even more refined.
