2010 Blanc de Blancs
Sourced from south facing estate vineyards with greensand and chalk soils in West Sussex. Temperatures in the early part of the 2010 growing season were slightly lower than average, but that coincided with much drier weather as well. Flowering proceeded in excellent conditions in late June and early July with hot and dry weather producing a large, even crop.
Hand picked in small crates and immediately pressed in a Coquard press, each parcel kept separate. Elevage on the lees in stainless steel. Aging for 5 years on the lees.
PRESS | 95 WE
“Touches of vanilla, cream and lovely hints of oatmeal allude to developing, evolving autolytic notes. These are edged with pure lemon, giving equal expression to emollience and freshness. On the midpalate the creamy, generous richness of yeast comes through, providing stucture and a canvas against which tart apple and Amalfi lemon can play. Depth and serious intent shows amid the sensuously fine fizz. The pure and lasting finish leaves you wanting more.” - Anne Krebiehl, MW Wine Enthusiast
