Nyetimber Classic Cuvée, English Sparkling Wine
"Nyetimber now has Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier vines on eight sites in West Sussex and neighbouring Hampshire, planted on the chalk soil that comprises the South Downs and reappears in Champagne. Grapes are only ever used from their own vineyards, harvested by hand, then undergo a traditional secondary fermentation. This tastes and looks like champagne with a lovely biscuity nose and rich creamy flavours on the palate." Richard Hemming MW, Jancisrobinson.com, August 2020

Nyetimber really is the Krug of England. Or should we say that Krug is the Nyetimber of Champagne? Either way, I cannot recommend this exemplary, delicious, flag-bearing English sparkling wine highly enough, at any price.
From one of the pioneers of English sparkling and a very traditional champagne style: creamy and toasty, with a citrus lift.
Nyetimber is where the great English wine boom all began in the mid-1980s, when the classic champagne trinity of chardonnay, pinot meunier and pinot noir were planted. Produced by Cherie Spriggs and Brad Greatrix, this market leader has first-class flavour.
England’s most consistent fizz is this Classic Cuvée. Go on, celebrate in style with this rich, creamy, opulent, buttered lemon brioche bubbly.
