TASTING NOTE

 

Pale golden in colour with fine, persistent bubbles. On the nose, the wine showsdelicate notes of lemon, lime peel and green apple, alongside toasted almond and pastry. The palate showcases citrus and orchard fruit, with bright, fresh fruit and floral notes too, leading to more evolved flavours of apple tart and shortbread from the extended time on lees. The wine is elegant, complex and poised, with a streak of freshness and minerality on the finish. Fresh fish and seafood works really well – why not try langoustines, seared scallops or golden beetroot tart.

Our advice on opening an agrafe

it stole my heart

This is exactly the kind of offbeat wine that makes my heart beat a little faster and makes me smile. It has a grooved dimension that is quite unique in this room of diverse, iconic, distinctive English sparkling wines….I tasted this in such a rush and yet it stole my heart. I would love to taste this exciting wine again. 17.5/20 points, tasted 10 June 2024
