2018 Classic Cuvee Sparkling, Tuffon Hall, East Anglia, England
Premium Cuvee, Jansz, Tasmania, Australia
The Wine - Honeysuckle and citrus scents are immediately apparent. Slight aromas of nougat, roasted nuts and a hint of strawberry from the Pinot Noir. Delicate fruits and creaminess fills the mouth with a lingering finish of citrus and nougat.
The Viticulture & Winemaking - To maximize blending options and complexity in the final wine, batches are kept separate during winemaking. Secondary fermentation takes place in the bottle and is aged on yeast lees for as long as possible. The average age of the final blend is around two years.
2006 Cuvee Nicolas Francois, Billecart Salmon, Champagne, France
This exceptional cuvée was created in 1964 as a tribute to the House’s founder. It results from the blending of Grands Crus from the classified Côte des Blancs vineyards (Chardonnay) and the Montagne de Reims (Pinot Noir).
A wonderfully rich and concentrated Champagne. One of the finest around.
