Made by Dermot Sugrue, former winemaker at Nyetimber, this is the second vintage from a vineyard planted on chalk in 2006. A classic blend of the three Champagne grapes, it boasts great purity and elegance. Aromas of lemon and apple are followed by a palate of delicate stone fruit and crisp acidity: long, complex and delicious. Limited production.
