Beautifully smooth mousse loaded with soft red fruit, a gentle apple skin note adds a pep of bright zip and then is subsumed into the joyful, easy and broader orchard fruit weight. This fills the palate and is punctuated by lighter summer meadow notes and a long pleasing finish that makes you want another sip. Perhaps not the most sophisticated label - but this is a dangerously moreish glass of bubbles. Blended by the talented Pommery cellar-master Thierry Gasco from Hattingly Valley reserve wines this is a very pleasing debut! We look forward to see what they can achieve from their own fruit when their Alresford vineyard in Hampshire comes on stream soon. L&S (Apr 2018)
*Case price: Mix any 12 bottles of wine or 6 bottles of Champagne, Spirits or Fortified to get the 'case price' for each bottle.
Much is made of the strata of chalk soil that hosts the vineyards of Champagne, that runs under northern France and the Channel to re-emerge in Kent and Sussex as the Downs, and many of England’s vineyards cling to that very chalk soil. But, crucially, we have the climate, on the very margins of where grapes can be persuaded to ripen, to produce the tart base wines that are ideal for high quality sparkling wine production. All that, the classic grape varieties and much expertise and even more enthusiasm has propelled England to the forefront of the sparkling wine world. In this case we've got wines from five different estates, all with something to say on the subject, and the case includes a couple of cheeky rosés because we do it so well.
