2014 was a great year with almost perfect growing conditions. A mild spring for budburst, ideal conditions at flowering with high temperatures and plenty of sunshine throughout June and July leading to good yields and excellent quality.
‘Possibly the most challenging vintage we have ever seen, the resulting wines, including this BdB are a testament to patience and focus on quality – finely balanced wine with a nervous energy’
The Chardonnay grapes were handpicked and gently whole-bunch pressed. Approximately 13% of the total blend was fermented in old oak barrels and partial malolactic fermentation took place to provide a round and creamy texture. After five years ageing on lees in bottle to add complexity and depth, the wine was disgorged in March 2020 at 6 g/L residual sugar.
Pale golden colour with gentle green hues and delicate bubbles, this Blanc de Blancs displays beautifully the pure linear character of the Chardonnay - white stone fruit, citrus fruit and a delicious honeyed character on the nose; clean and mineral flavours with pastry and brioche notes on the palate. It has a well balanced and refreshing acidity that gives way to a creamy mouthfeel and long, complex finish.
Delicious with Hampshire hot smoked trout pate, local salami and charcuterie.
