The Classic Cuvée 2006 is a bland of 55% Chardonnay, 23% Pinot Noir and 22% Pinot Meunier.
The grapes of 2006 were from the warmest ever growing season in Nyetimber history, which has resulted in greater sweetness and fruit flavours.
The taste is smooth and fruity, with apricots and peaches and a distinct tropical character.
Long fruity finish and a nice sweetness on the tongue.
Really quite different from both the 2009 and 2007 I tried before it.
This wine’s price (£150) and presentation makes a huge statement but it’s Nyetimber’s quality and precise approach that makes it a standout.
Drinking superbly right now, but will be truly exceptional with more time in the bottle.
An exceptionally balanced Blanc de Blancs from Nyetimber that is only just entering its stride and with a long life ahead.
A deeper rosé with rich wild strawberry, raspberry and a hint of winter spice.
Honeyed pastry notes add weigh to a clean mineral backbone in this delicate but expressive Rosé.
A hugely impressive and appealing wine demonstrating sublime integration and development.
