WINE REVIEW

This is a really grown-up and textured expression of Blanc de Noirs from Surrey’s Denbies Wine Estate. The Denbies had an impressive six years bottle ageing with a barrel-matured dosage for extra complexity.

The nose on this is really distinctive – it reminds me of winter! The smell is reminiscent of oranges with spices pricked into their skin. I love that quality, and it really complemented stone fruit and roasted almond notes.

To taste, again, there’s a lovely winter spiced note that stands out with orange peel and spiced roasted almonds. And there’s also plentiful fruit in the form of apricot, baked apple and peach.

This is a generous style of Blanc de Noirs, but it’s not cumbersome thanks to the brisk cut-through of English acidity.
