A chance to sample each of our wines... to work out which of them you should buy in bulk!

Or why not give a friend A Pair? They'd make a perfect and generous present.

CLASSIC:

A pale, silvery gold with a fine, rapid mousse.

White and red fruits on the nose with hints of baked apple and brioche.

Very clean and refreshing palate with a full generous mouthfeel, lightly toasted with honey, notes of green apple and distant brioche.

A long, satisfying finish.

PINK (NV):

A bright, pure silver-blush with a fine, constant mousse.

Generous, redcurrant, ice-cream and biscuit on the nose, with a clean, almost saline, mineral note.

The plentiful Meunier in the blend provides vibrant pink and red fruits on the complex palate, very fresh, with a creamy, brioche undertone.

A delightfully, precise and balanced mid-palate leads to a biscuity, savoury and satisfying finish.

We drink the CLASSIC as an aperitif and enjoy it with:

  • fine, buttery slices of iberico ham
  • rich, smoked fish
  • oysters
  • ROKA cheese crispies

Our PINK (NV) is lovely on its own but it has the complexity to go well with food too.  Try it with:

  • rich, smoked fish
  • grilled chicken
  • smooth, vegetarian risotto
  • oysters

Susie Barrie and Peter Richards, married Masters of Wine had this to say about the CLASSIC 2015 release:

CLASSIC:

This classy, classic blend comes bursting with appley and bready aromas and a gentle hint of wood smoke.

The flavour profile is rich and rewarding, with fresh acidity underscoring a succulent, moreish style.

The ideal aperitif or a fine match for canapés like smoked salmon blinis.

 

Nicola Arcedeckne-Butler MW and doyenne of Private Cellar tasted the CLASSIC in late May, 2019:

CLASSIC:

Pale gold with a bright autolytic note on the nose, sweet and ripe with hints of cooked apple, and a floral touch behind, along with a smoky / bonfire note which comes out after extensive swirling in the glass. On the palate bright, racy and lemony fresh fruit, verges on austere but swerves back to personable just in time, very pretty and fresh going to a long finish. This will benefit from a few months more bottle age, and tasted later that day showed broader and richer and, left open, it held up incredibly well.

She also tasted the PINK (NV) in May, 2020: 

Very pale partridge eye pink and again a constant fine mousse. On the nose fresh redcurrant fruit, creamy and ripe with a distant hint of rhubarb, so fresh, with a very distant autolysis touch, leading to a palate of vibrant, pink and red fruits, again redcurrant, zingy and fresh with a lovely creamed backnote; very fresh and juicy, airy almost, and truly delicious.
