Blanc de Blancs Cork Aged

Blanc de Blancs Cork Aged Twenty Thirteen

The nose brings notes of citrus and a bold orchard fruit character. On the palate the wine is creamy and generous with hints of lemon sherbet, developed notes of freshly baked bread, smoked, toasted nuts, soft spices, and a distinct mineral character.

When our Chardonnay enjoys more time on lees, it gains deeper levels of richness and toasty brioche flavours. The late-disgorged style, which is rested on lees but without any exposure to air, retains bright, light freshness. The cork-aged style, meanwhile, is gently exposed to small amounts of air through its cork closure meaning you can decern deeper toasty flavours and less emphasis on freshness. This 2013 wine has benefitted from 55 months on its lees, and a further minimum of 55 months on cork and wonderfully demonstrates the ageability of fine English wines.


Golden straw colour in the glass, with a delicate mousse. The nose is dominated by citrus fruit notes of lemon, pink grapefruit and a bold orchard fruit character. On the palate the wine feels creamy and generous with lemon sherbet, green apple and pear, together with more developed notes of freshly baked bread, toasted brioche, and soft spices. There is a distinct mineral character and hints of smoked, toasted nuts. The wine is elegant and complex, with a long and intense finish. It is beautiful with seafood and fish and a perfect match for lobster tortelloni, halibut with a lemon butter sauce or a cheddar and leek tart.
