WINE REVIEW

Launched to help celebrate ten years since Mike and Hilary Wagstaff took over Greyfriars, the new ‘X’ Blanc de Noirs 2017 is made from 100% Pinot Noir.

The nose is visceral and expressive, with aromas of red apple, ginger and aromatic spiced notes.

This is once again released with Greyfriars’ signature low dosage of 3g/l, which brings a tight, linear flavour profile in youth. 2017 was a more challenging vintage in much of England, and the fruit character here is verging more towards green orchard fruit, but what impressed me was the textural nutty/oaty textures and ginger biscuit complexity.
