Attractive golden copper hue. Delightful bouquet of ripe stone and citrus fruits lifted by floral notes.
Baked apples on the palate are layered with notes of toasted almonds, characteristic of a generous bottle-ageing.
A rich, yet beautifully balanced wine with delicate bubbles, a silky texture and a long-lingering finish.
This wine is drinking well now but will undoubtedly, continue to improve with bottle age.
Pairs perfectly with lobster, oysters, aged Comté.
“I loved the first wine (2014 Classic Cuvée) I tried from this estate last year. This is another mightily impressive bottle from a single vineyard of pinot noir in West Sussex – it is complex and intense with red fruits, cashews and poached pear.” Hamish Anderson, Telegraph Magazine.
“The brilliant, elegantly bottled Blanc de Noirs 2015 made entirely from pinot noir grapes grown near the site of the ancient Roman villa at Petworth in West Sussex, has really individual depth of rich, nutty, lingering flavours stemming from fermentation in French oak and four years lees ageing in the bottle.” Terry Kirby, Independent.
