Yeasty bread nose and a deeply savoury spicy palate. Naming the fruit eluded for a while but think quince comes closest. Full in the mouth, a long finish. This might even tempt me away from my beloved Pol occasionally.

Winemaker's Notes:

Nyetimber Vineyard pioneered the UK's recent rise to fame and recognition for its ability to be taken seriously at international level. The estate was conceived, planted and equipped exclusively for the production of top-quality sparkling wines. Just over fourteen hectares (thirty-five acres) of gentle, south-facing slopes of greensand soil were planted with Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier, the classic varieties of the Champagne region. The appearance of the Classic Cuvée is a pale lemon yellow, persistent fine beaded mousse. The nose is very expressive, with aromas of honey, hazelnut, almond, marmalade, biscuity with lemon, floral and subtle toasty notes underneath. The palate is medium to full bodied, with mature honey and toast aromas, plus lime undertones. Attractive mouthfeel with rich and yet delicate mousse that progresses nicely towards mineral and slate-like flavourson the finish. Good balance, intensity, length and complexity all point towards a promising future
