2009 Classic Cuvée, Nyetimber, England

Prior to 2010, the Classic Cuvée was a single vintage wine, and we’ve liberated a few bottles of the gorgeous 2009 Classic Cuvée, a wonderful vintage in England. Late disgorged just for Lay & Wheeler, it shows the ageing potential of this brilliant wine. Notes of ripe apples, caramel, and a hint of forest floor, this is utterly delicious.

2009 Classic Cuvée, Nyetimber, England
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.
