The Details

Tasting Note Pale gold in colour with a delicate bead and fine mousse. Initial aromas of lime zest and vanilla bean evolve into more complex layers of delicate elderflower blossom, honeysuckle and herbaceous linden tree. This is a powerful wine with Chardonnay the driving force and Pinot Noir providing the harmonising finesse. Elegantly structured with notes of zingy lime, lychee and honeydew, a fine chalky texture and pure lime pip acidity. Seven and a half years ageing on yeast lees in bottle has built further complexity and subtle nuances of nougat, roasted hazelnuts and brioche. With lingering and refreshing natural acidity on the finish, this is a sparkling wine of finesse, power and elegance.
Best Enjoyed With Fried chicken drizzled with finger lime, ginger and ponzu sauce; lime crème brulée; tomato and basil bruschetta with a drizzle of balsamic vinegar.
Treatment Gentle handling, partial barrel fermentation in aged French oak for six months and complex assemblage blending has resulted in this classic wine. Over seven years of ageing on yeast lees after secondary fermentation gives wonderful yeast complexity to the final wine.

Accolades

Lively and lengthy
This is fresh and citrusy with subtle notes of raw almonds, custard and some yeasty undertones. Medium-bodied with vivid acidity and fine and firm bubbles. Lively and lengthy on the palate with tension and energy to the fruit. Drink now.
James Suckling

Expressive and delicate mousse
Still a youthful pale gold colour. Fine and tight beading. Complex perfume: nougat, roast hazelnuts, strawberry red fruits, brioche, peanut oil, preserved lime and lemon, briny sea spray and earthy fresh truffle. Expressive and delicate mousse. Still razor sharp and precise. Only hints of development with a little truffle and yeasty depth, else wise super primary with limey citrus and green apple tartness balanced with a layered chalky texture. The price is bordering on ridiculous.
