Gusbourne Blanc De Blancs 2014 - fiche technique

100% Chardonnay (being, as it is, a Blanc de Blancs).

A bright golden colour with a delicate mousse, the Blanc De Blancs has classic Chardonnay aromas of green apple, citrus and mineral notes combined with buttered toast and tarte tatin richness from extended lees ageing. This wine is a great accompaniment to seafood in general, but is perfect with freshly shucked oysters.

53% Pinot Noir, 40% Chardonnay, 7% Pinot Meunier.

Bright gold in colour, this blend highlights red fruit aromas of cherry and strawberry, which then develop into attractive fresh pastry notes with a touch of cinnamon and spice. With a bright streak of citrus fruit, the palate is clean and fresh whilst giving tones of soft stone fruit and a long, refreshing finish. It is the flexible partner for contemporary and classic English food pairings; from seared scallops and smoked eels to fish & chips (seriously: try it!)

Hattingley Valley Blanc De Blancs 2013 - September 2019 Decanter review

Hattingley Valley is a family owned business located in Hampshire specialising in premium English sparkling wines. Simon Robinson established Hattingley Valley in 2008. Following in-depth feasibility studies, the first 28-acre, south-facing site was planted in May of that year with Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier. Alongside Emma Rice, he planned the modern, eco-friendly winery in Wield that was completed in 2010. It uses the latest technology and equipment from continental Europe, has sophisticated waste disposal facilities and was the first UK winery to adopt solar power.

The estate currently manages over 24 hectares (60 acres) of vines across two, well-situated sites under the watchful eyes of its vineyard managers. The vines are nurtured throughout the growing year with an environmentally-sensitive approach to viticulture ensuring optimum ripeness, yield and quality of fruit.

At Hattingley Valley, the traditional method (method champenoise) is used for winemaking. A key element of the house style is the subtle use of oak barrels to ferment a small proportion of the wines each year, as well as ageing on lees in stainless steel tanks. This helps to soften the wines before they go into bottles for the second fermentation. 

The butterfly you see across Hattingley’s branding is the Silver-washed Fritillary, a rare butterfly often found in the chalk-based vineyard. The presence of this special butterfly shows that the vineyard is a thriving environment with a rich biodiversity.

Since launching its first release in August 2013, Hattingley Valley has been recognised in competitions across the globe and developed into one of the most respected producers of English sparkling wines in the country. Hattingley was awarded the ‘World Champion’ trophy for its 2011 Blanc de Blancs in the Champagne and Sparkling Wine World Championships 2017.

Here's Hattingley Valley's own data sheet/fiche technique on this, the BdB 2013.

Hattingley Valley Blanc De Blancs 2013 - fiche technique

This wine has a lovely deep gold colour with a green hue and a fine mousse. The nose has delicate white fruit that gives way to a rich toasty and honeyed charm. The palate is beautifully balanced and complex – ripe apples with a crisp yet soft acidity that is balanced by a hint of oak influence. A rich and rounded mouth-feel and long finish. It has great ageing potential.

£35.20

NV BALFOUR LESLIE'S RESERVE, HUSH HEATH ESTATE (1x 75CL)

A very zingy light style of bubbly with a creamy mousse and a dry bready character behind a citrus sherbert lime, lemon and green apple flavour. Certainly comparable with NV Champagne.

Nyetimber Classic Cuvee (1x 75cl)

Awarded 95 points and Gold status at the 2019 IWC (International Wine Challenge) in May 2019 (see blue link below for review and their tasting note).

Nyetimber Classic Cuvee - IWC 2019 award and review

Winemaker, Cherie Spriggs, is central to every decision that gets made at Nyetimber. She assesses each and every handpicked vineyard individually. This means choosing the optimal time to harvest the grapes, supervising their gentle pressing and their eventual vinification in stainless steel tanks. This level of knowledge allows her to make informed decisions about blending wines the following spring.

Southern England is perfect for the production of sparkling wine. The chalk seam that supplies Champagne grapes with the perfect green sand and chalky soil to flourish is the very same that runs under the lee of the South Downs. This is where, sheltered from the coastal winds, Nyetimber's vines are planted across eight separate sites. The climate here allows for the slow ripening of their grapes, allowing them to achieve the optimum level of acidity for the wine, as well as the complexity and finesse that they strive for. At Nyetimber they only use grapes from their own vineyards. Prior to harvest, the grapes are tasted to ensure the best flavour development before picking. And if they aren’t up to standard? They simply won’t use them.

All Nyetimber's wines are made according to the traditional 'méthode champenoise', ageing them for extended periods of time and giving the bottles sufficient post-disgorgement time before release. 

Nyetimer Classic Cuvée is a lovely pale gold colour with gentle and fine bubbles.  The aromas are toasty, spicy and complex, showing wonderful development after spending more than three years on its lees in the cellar. The palate supports the complex aromas and is enriched with the flavours of honey, almond, pastry and baked apples.  This sparkling wine is very elegant with a great combination of intensity, delicacy and length.
