‘The truest expression of our terroir’ Charlie Holland
Our Blanc de Blancs is the truest expression of our terroir. We select the finest lots of Chardonnay, exhibiting natural minerality, ensuring that the wine has both the finesse and elegance that one would expect in this style, but also the requisite qualities for extended ageing.
Regarded as being at the very pinnacle of English Sparkling Wines, our wines are only released when deemed ready by myself and our Master Sommelier, Laura Rhys. Our intent is to create Pure Elegance.
The finest of company
A bright golden colour with a delicate mousse, our Blanc De Blancs has classic Chardonnay aromas of green apple, citrus and mineral notes combined with buttered toast and Tarte Tatin richness from extended lees ageing. This wine is a great accompaniment to seafood in general, but is perfect with freshly shucked oysters.
Served at the 2012 London Olympics opening party and at Buckingham Palace for visiting heads of state.
A favourite at fine dining establishments such as Belmond Le Manoir aux Quat’Saisons and the Clove Club. The palate is well balanced with a streak of zesty acidity complementing a gentle mousse that gives way to a creamy, hazelnut and baked apple.

Celebrating Centuries of Sparkle
When the time for celebration comes round, one universal truth seems to apply: wherever you are and whatever the occasion, if you’re going to raise a toast, your glass really should be brimming with bubbles.
A Wine in Time: Cork and Lees Ageing
Soil. Grapes. Weather. All critical elements in winemaking. But equally important is time. Time in the vineyard. Time in tanks, barrels and bottles. Time developing into perfection in a glass. What happens at each stage of the wine ageing process has a profound effect on how the finished wine tastes. So what exactly is the difference between cork ageing and lees ageing?
