2003 Blanc de Blancs, Nyetimber

A rich, inviting, enticing golden colour, the aromatics of this are amazing. Nutty and autolytic, just as classic Blanc de Blancs should be, it has retained great freshness and poise despite the roasting 2003 summer. Certainly deserving of its recent praise from Robert Parker. I love these wines: rather more vinous than a lot of Champagnes, they are delicate and elegant but retain so much expressiveness and depth.

2003 Blanc de Blancs, Nyetimber
Nyetimber

The first English winery to make sparkling wine from the same - and only - grape varieties as Champagne, as well as the very first English single vineyard cuvée, Nyetimber are English fizz pioneers. Since planting vines in 1988, their commitment to quality is unrivaled. In 2012, they even abandoned the entire harvest when they felt the grapes didn't reach full ripeness. Nyetimber hold a place at the pinnacle of English production, frequently challenging, and beating, Champagne in blind tastings.
