2010 1086, Nyetimber, England

The 1086 is Nyetimber’s prestige cuvée, produced to be the pinnacle of the estate. A careful selection of dozens of separate wines from the 2010 vintage, carefully blended together, it then spent six years on the lees before being disgorged. It’s not cheap, but it’s undoubtedly the most ambitious, and most complex, sparkling wine produced in England today. Notes of biscuit and red fruit, and a very long, focussed finish. So impressive.

2010 1086, 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.
