Nyetimber sparkling from England

Finally a bit of good news thanks to climate change. Southern England with a soil similar to that of Champagne in France is benefitting from a warmer climate over the last twenty years and are now producing delicious still wine and bubbles. The bubbles can not be named Champagne, but this is Champagne quality, especially the cuvee classic from Nyetimber. Lovely pale gold colour with gentle fine bubbles. Apple, citrus, flowers and toast on the nose. Three years on the lees is reflected on the nose. An elegant and crispy taste with a long aftertaste and medium body. This is a very elegant "Champagne". Grapes are Pinot Noir, Pinot Meunier and Chardonnay. Mix 50/50 black and white. Nyetimber  England, ca 30-40€
