2013 Blanc de Blancs
Our inaugural 2013 vintage Blanc de Blancs is made exclusively from our lowest yielding Chardonnay vines in plot 76. With the chalk only 30cm below the surface these vines have to work very hard to produce a small amount of intensely flavoured Chardonnay grapes. We then fermented 50% of this wine in seasoned oak barrels to add extra layers of complexity to the already rich and creamy texture. This is a wine that will live long into the future and give pleasure at all stages of development.

Brut Reserve NV
Our NV wine is a blend of all three varieties, dominated by the soft red fruit of Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier. This second instalment is based on the wonderful 2013 vintage. As future blends are released we will use an increasing amount of our reserve wines to maintain a consistent style that really shows off the special nature of this single vineyard.

2014 Vintage Brut Rosé
The next instalment of our Brut Rosé comes from the truly wonderful 2014 vintage, the warmest on record. Ripe fruit was not hard to come by that year and we picked in beautiful warm sunshine throughout harvest. It has a lot in common with our 2013 release, but with extra red fruit character. It was also such a wonderful year for Chardonnay and have added 30% to this years blend for the finesse and balance we are looking for. Once again 30% was fermented in aged oak barrels for extra complexity. A really charming wine that lovers of our previous release will adore.
