The result of the brilliantly warm Indian summer of 2011, our first vintage is a classic blend of all three Champagne grape varieties. Disgorged in March 2015 after 33 months on lees, this perfectly aged, classically styled sparkling wine is rich, ripe with Pinot fruit very much to the fore. This is combined with a crisp, vivid acidity which balances a core of fine pear and citrus. The finish is characterised by persistent, yeast-complexed fruit reminiscent of hazelnut and brioche. The well integrated dosage suggests a wine with an impressive ability to age, particularly as the Chardonnay component of this blend is still in an early phase.
