Tasting Notes

Laura Evans, our resident Master of Wine

This beautiful wine is very pale straw in colour with a fine mousse from 4 years lees ageing.

It has a complex nose with very many nuances: freshly baked pastries married with pink grapefruit and apple strudel. There is a wonderful concentration of creamy fruit on the palate; yeasty, bready notes giving way to the signature long and smooth Squerryes finish.

The acidity works well with dishes prepared with a creamy sauce or freshly shucked, meaty, creamy oysters, such as a Colchester or Fal

Blanc de Blancs 2016

Reasonably early bud burst, but wet June and July which meant yields were below average. Then the sun came out and August to October were really warm, with harvest mid-October, which will give a similar wine to our 2011 vintage, with expressive fruit and a lovely rich Chardonnay.
