Dorset Cremant Bride Valley

Region
Dorset, England
Producer:
Bride Valley
Grapes:
Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, Pinot Meunier
Wine Description:

Produced using the classic Champagne grapes from an ampitheatre like vineyard overlooking Litton Cheney in West Dorset. England's first go at cremant, this wine is well balanced with flavours of whipped cream, cashew, green apple, pear, light nectarine and peach, lemon, lime. Creamy mouthfeel, aggressive but pleasant acid.

Tasting Note:

A 50/50 blend of the cold 2015 and warmer 2016 vintage. All three of the classic Champagne grapes, but dominated by Chardonnay with a relatively high dosage of 9 g/s/l which perfectly balances the 2015’s acidity, This is England’s first ever 'Crémant'.
