Nyetimber Half Bottle Classic Brut Sparkling 2010, West Sussex, England
Blended from Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Pinot Menieur, the classic cuvée has a generous creamy texture which epitomises the harmony of flavours that a blend of these grapes can bring.
"The wine itself is perfect from start to finish. Made from a blend of Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Pinot meunier this follows the traditional method of Champagne production. Even the bubbles appear to float to the top of the glass in such a way that says “look at me, I’m amazing” in their wondrous golden glory. The steady stream from just a single point, like someone had installed an oxygen pump to my receptacle. If that wasn’t enough, the drink somehow comes alive when sipped, like it turns into a soapy foam consistency. And then I swear the taste actually changes while it’s in your mouth. Starting with the taste of lemons then onto brioche, honey, walnuts, acorns oh my goodness, Willy Wonka would find it difficult to make such a product." The hungry Londoner.
