Blanc de Blancs 2018


Blanc de Blancs 2018

From £36.95

Following on from the 2017 Blanc de Blancs this wine is also Zero Dosage and crafted from selected hand-picked Chardonnay & Pinot Blanc grapes gently pressed to extract the highest quality cuvee juice.  A portion of the juice underwent primary fermentation in large French new oak barrels with subsequent prolonged lees contact in barrel prior to blending.   After secondary fermentation this wine enjoyed 44 months or more on-lees maturation in bottle, all of which has helped to create a beautifully balanced and elegant Sussex sparkling wine with layers of complexity, great poise and length.    On the nose the wine offers aromas of pear, peach and apricot complimented by a touch of brioche.

Further Information

It is believed by many that Blanc de Blancs could potentially become England’s flagship sparkling wine style.  At their best, these wines, made from 100% white grapes (typically Chardonnay) are elegant, focussed and vibrant with a core of crisp acidity and subtle apple and citrus aromas backed by brioche and creamy characteristics contributed by lees ageing.   Great Blanc de Blancs wines have great acidity and English-grown Chardonnay grapes have acidity in abundance, like many of our best fruits, from Cox’s apples to blackcurrants and rhubarb.   Whilst this needs to be tempered with extended lees age contact and judicious use of dosage and perhaps some oak, when done well it is the key to producing fine sparkling wines like no other.
