About the Wine
This sparkling white wine is made by Louis Pommery in England. A wonderful accompaniment to seafood or canapés featuring duck or beetroot. It is created with mosty Pinot Noir grapes. Supplied by Vranken Pommery.
A temperamental thin skinned grape and difficult to grow, when produced of any quality it demands high prices. The thin skin means it's very light in colour body and tannin, it characteristically has searing acidity and full lingering flavours of raspberry, strawberry, cherry, violets and sweet spice.
Pommery is the first major French Champagne house to release an English Sparkling wine. Vranken Pommery has started it’s ‘English journey’ by creating an English Sparkling wine using the French Champagne making expertise of head wine-maker Clement Pierlot. It started planting vines in 2017 on Pinglestone Vineyard, with perfect ‘terroir’ of chalk subsoil, the principal grapes of Champagne, Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier will be grown here but it is Chardonnay that will be predominant in the blend.
Our national vineyards are growing and thriving and this is an exciting time for the burgeoning industry with 2018 being a record year and forecasts set to grow to production of 40 million bottles by 2040.Explore England
