A magnum of some of our finest bubbles, our Blanc de Blancs
If you’ve made your way to this page, it probably means that you appreciate the finer things in life (and you have come to the right place). We only use the very finest parcels of chardonnay and age the wine for a minimum of four years with no exceptions. This Hattingley Valley English sparkling wine will continue to mature and develop over the coming years so no need to rush to drink them all at once;

VEGETARIAN/VEGAN - Yes
STORAGE RECOMMENDATIONS - Please keep in a cool, dark place if possible.
DRINKING WINDOW - Drinking very well now, will improve and mature over the next 5-7 years and will keep for at least 10 years.
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.
‘The wines from 2014 practically made themselves and this Blanc de Blancs is no exception. All from chalk vineyards in Sussex and Hampshire this wine is elegant and refined with potential to age beautifully in the bottle.’
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.

Blanc de Blancs 2014
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.
"With 13% old oak and a perfect balance of age and oak, coupled with sensational use of Chardonnay, this is an effortlessly classy wine and one of the most engaging in our land. All too often English BdB lacks aroma, mid-palate grandeur and mystery, but this is a brilliantly balanced wine, at the top of its game and it is incredibly perfumed, stunningly restrained and ever so exciting."
"Very nicely balanced, sprightly nose. Super-fine bead. Nicely judged mousse. Very much a Blanc de Blancs with citrus zest and no obvious sweetness – just well-integrated fruit and acidity. A really attractive drink now but it shouldn't go downhill in a hurry."
