Chienoir by BedeauX for Black Dog Hill Vineyard

A fresh vibrant perfume reflecting the landscape of the vineyard, a spectrum of green vines, white flowers and the deep, chalky earth of the South Downs.

“Chienoir evokes the landscape of the vineyard nestled at the foot of the South Downs where the sheltered vines grow happily in chalky soil littered with prehistoric sea fossils. Imagine walking through vibrant green vines treading the downland terroir and inhaling the salty woodland air. ​Neroli, sweet orange, bergamot, juniper berries and pink peppercorns create an aromatic open space on a deep earthy base of patchouli, oakmoss, opoponax, tobacco, wood and musk. Each of the sixty bottles in the first limited edition batch has a unique label hand marbled using the ancient Japanese art of Suminagashi, is presented in a handmade silk bag and comes with a print of an original Amanda Beadle watercolour of the Vineyard.”

Sparkling Wine of Choice On Board Discerning Superyachts

Black Dog Hill the award winning English sparkling wine of choice on board discerning superyachts is set to have a good harvest as grape picking gets underway

At the Vineyard in Sussex, they have completed picking the Pinot Noir grapes and the pickers are taking a well-earned rest before starting to harvest the Chardonnay.

The Pinot Noir grapes are, it seems, excellent. Potential alcohol is the best the vineyard has seen since 2011 and sugars and acidity are at ideal levels.

With luck, this will mean a superb quality vintage.

The downside is a low yield. Quantity is down and Chief Stewardesses will have to be quick to secure wines for their yachts.

Vineyard owner Jim Nolan says, “We will have exact numbers later. This has happened right across Sussex. I have spoken to other vineyards and we have actually faired better than most. Poor weather during flowering and hard attack by birds and beasts have combined. However, if we create the wine I think we will this is not such a problem.”
