A chance to sample each of our non-vintage 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 NV:

A lovely pale gold colour with a pleasing, persistent mousse.

Fresh lemon and orange zest on the nose with hints of apple, white fruits and brioche.

Clean and fresh on the palate, some creamy redcurrant and distant pear underscored by a full generous mouthfeel, subtly toasted with rounded autolytic flavours working well with a fresh note of green apple.

Stays with you pleasingly through the 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

 

 

Nicola Arcedeckne-Butler MW and doyenne of Private Cellar tasted the CLASSIC NV in June, 2020:

Really alluring pale gold with a fine, constant mousse; on the nose lovely autolysis characters, light brioche, appley and a hint of creamed white fruits, very fresh and bright. On the palate fresher and racier than the nose implied, with bright white stone fruits again, some custard apple notes, brioche and a light, fresh leafy note, with lovely vibrant acidity behind the warm fruits. This is seriously moreish!

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.
