Roebuck Classic Cuvée 2018

Wine Type:


Roebuck has been around for a good few years now, and they’ve maintained their name for providing sumptuous, aged and complete English sparkling wines.

The latest Classic Cuvée comes from the great 2018 vintage, and is made from 47% Chardonnay, 42% Pinot Noir and 11% Pinot Meunier with four years on lees and another under cork.

The nose offers pleasing aromas of orchard fruit and blossom, with hints of warm brioche, buttery croissant and a hint of toast.

The palate impresses with its soft mouthfeel, a mixture of baked apple, peach and pear, with the warmth of brioche and buttered bread. It’s rich and rounded, but there’s a brilliantly bright acid line that cuts through it, leading to a lightly saline finish – think lightly salted toasted sourdough bread.

This is a superbly balanced wine at an attractive price.
