This iconic cuvee, produced exclusively from our own estate, is aged at least 62 months on the lees. Tasting will reveal sweet notes of ripe yellow and white summer fruits, followed by buttery pastry aromas, delivered in a creamy yet elegant texture. Full tasting notes below.

T A S T I N G   N O T E

Confit lemon, orange blossom and white lily exude on the nose, nestling amongst ripe apricot, white peach and baked red apple. The palate intensifies, evolving into tarte Tatin, almond croissant and a dusting of crumble, yet maintaining a precise structure, creamy texture and mouth-watering acidity. The finish develops a mineral, chalky quality, nodding to our Hampshire terroir, and the svelte mousse remains persistent and elegant. Incredibly complex and immensely enjoyable.

Testimonials

94/100

There are some bread/pastry notes, as well as some fine toast and nut characters, with the low dosage allowing all the different flavours to express themselves: lime, herbs, green apple, sour cherry, pastry and spice. Serious stuff with its own distinctive personality.

Jamie Goode
Wine Anorak

A standard-bearer for the quality that England can achieve. It's a very assured wine, with a firm acidic spine, but also complexity and detail. Great focus and precision.

Victoria Moore
The Telegraph

England’s oldest commercial vineyard is also one of its most innovative, under the meticulous eye of owner Ian Kellett and a team led by former champagne maker Hervé Jestin. This is outstanding, with a precise, delicate character.
