(2017) A hint of buttered popcorn, invitingly nutty and toasty, the mousse creamy and full, then a fine apple sweetness but dry, apple core acidity, a long structured finish, good acids and intensity of fruit.
(2017) A lot of Champagne-like autolysis, with plenty of yeasty character. The creaminess of apples comes through. On the palate the wine has lovely depth and breadth, a soft mousse, and elegant finish with zesty lemon and a touch of fat lemon waxiness, hints of minerality.
(2017) A blend of 65% Pinot and 35% Chardonnay made by Ed Carr, based on the 2009 harvest. Not the most aromatic of the wines so far, but a racing freshness, and fine sour lemon length and just a little creaminess to the texture, though freshly focused and long and tight.
(2017) A slightly more Champagne-like quality, a touch of oxidation, with a touch of mushroom. More leesy, with fine, bold and bright citrus - lemon and orange. Again feels a touch sweeter than Brut, but could be the pure ripeness of the fruit.
