2013 Kings Cuvée
70% Chardonnay & 30% Pinot Noir
Sourced from vineyards across the South of England, mainly chalk with clay topsoil.
A very limited release, the Kings Cuvée is a premium blend of Chardonnay and Pinot Noir. 100% barrel fermented and then aged for eight months in four to five year old oak barrels. After rigorous taste tests, only the top seven barrels were selected out of 180 available. Once bottled, the wine spend 30 months on lees before disgorging with 5g/L dosage, and a minimum of six months on cork before release.
TASTING NOTES |
This prestige sparkling wine has an attractive pale golden straw colour with a fine mousse. Citrus and baked apple aromas combine with hints of toast and rich spices. It has a very smooth and elegant structure with delicate fruit and seductive oak, leading to a distinctive fresh, long and complex finish.
