Back on the meatier side of Blanc de Noirs, Dorset’s Furleigh Estate have delivered a gastronomic and food-friendly blend of Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier. This was another Gold Medal winner at the IEWA 2021.
The Furleigh is one of the more golden examples in the line-up, with an alluring nose of peach skin, nectarine and caramelized pastry.
The palate is superbly structured, beginning with brisk, crisp acidity before giving way to creamy stone fruit and biscuity layers. I really enjoyed the contrast between the lively acidity and the indulgent biscuity depth on this bottle from Furleigh.
