Greyfriars Classic Cuvée Brut, England

Greyfriars Classic Cuvée Brut, England

The 2013 vintage is a blend of 48% Chardonnay, 36% Pinot Noir and 16% Pinot Meunier; the blend varies slightly each year. Made from hand harvested grapes from the Greyfriars estate just south-west of Guildford. Here, just 80 or so miles north of Champagne’s latitude, the vines experience a similar climate on Surrey’s North Downs. The wine has a 5 g/l dosage of sugar and spends three years bottle ageing. Aromas of brioche and toast yield to ripe stone fruit and subtle toasty notes on the finish.
