Tasted side by side with 2056, 2006 & 2009, each having its own unique nose and taste.
The 2007 was my favourite of the four in a vertical tasting, a blend of 79% Chardonnay, 15% Pinot Noir and 6% Pinot Meunier.
The 2007 harvest comes from a year of challenging weather; a warm wet winter and cool dry summer.
The wine is a lot more complex as a result. Rich tangy apples come through on the pallet as does a stronger burnt sugar character and really rich layered toasted notes.
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.
