The unusually warm, early and condensed 2016 vintage provided ideal conditions for intensity and concentration of character at low ripeness levels enabling us to make a tiny quantity of single-vineyard sparkling Blanc de Blanc.
The intention was to allow this cuvée to age for an extended period on lees to further enhance its intensity and breadth. Displaying a freshness and vitality that bely the warm vintage and extended aging, the nose features a mix of floral and herbal aromas: lemon verbena, sweet marjoram, Bramley apple, frangipani and nougat with underlying savoury flintiness.
As this wine has spent an extended time in bottle sur lie, it is ready for immediate enjoyment. However further complexity may develop for a further 3-5 years under ideal cellaring conditions
