The unusually cool, late and extended 2017 vintage provided ideal conditions for finely structured, poised and nuanced character at low ripeness levels enabling us to make a small quantity of outstanding sparkling Blanc de Blanc.
The nose features enticing aromas of tangerine, custard apple, honey, meringue and lemon panna cotta, combined with more savoury elements of freshly baked brioche and nougat. The palate carries citrus flavours of lemon curd, white grapefruit and lemon thyme intertwined with sweet pastry and cashew notes from extended oak and lees aging, drawing the palate deep and long.
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.
