Description

The 2017 Bride Valley Blanc des Blancs 100% Chardonnay from the south-facing slopes of Litton Cheney, Dorset. Disgorged after 24 months on the lees, it is released for the summer – three years after the vintage. The perfect apéritif

Tasting Note: Silver pale with lemony tints, it has white flowers & a spring-like freshness on the nose with citrus elements & a hint of dry honey. A great purity of fruit on the palate, showing a light creaminess at the start contrasting with a Granny Smith acidity on the finish. A true reflection of Bride Valley’s chalky Kimmeridgian soil.
The Dorset estate of esteemed wine writer Steven Spurrier and his wife Bella. The vines are planted in an amphitheatre-like vineyard overlooking the village of Litton Cheney, near Bridport.
Following Steven's tests, the local geology here was found to be very similar to Champagne, perhaps rather unsurprisingly as the village of Kimmeridge is a short distance away with its geologically identical chalky soil to the Champagne region. The wines here are a real joy to drink, beautiful fruit comes off these rolling vineyards and is vinified at the neighbouring Furleigh Estate by the brilliant Ian Edwards.

"Dazzling white flowers and zingy lime zest of a top-drawer, mouthwatering English fizz. Made exclusively from Chardonnay grown on a pretty rolling Dorset hillside vineyard of Kimmeridgian chalk, it's a must." - Jane Macquitty, The Times 29 Jan '22

“This is a wonderful apéritif sparkler... Pale gold with a lightly floral scent, this Blanc de Blancs reveals pineapple and apple fruit flavours with a little dab of honey. It has a long dry and highly refreshing finish.” – Susy Atkins, Food Magazine.
