A delicate balance of freshness and richness.

The blend of the brut is 58% Chardonnay, 28% Pinot Meunière and 14% Pinot Noir. Aged for a minimum of 42 months on lees. 97% from 2018 and 3% of reserve wine.

On the nose, floral notes compliment nutty and toasty overtones. Bubbles are generous without being overwhelming. The palate starts with hints of floral citrus. Then creamy vanilla and orchard fruits on the mid palate. Long, streamline and mineral finish.

Candover Brook's maiden release has lively aromas of lemon peel, almond, honeysuckle and toasted brioche. There is excellent purity of fruit, rich mouthfeel and vibrant acidity on the palate, leading to a long and layered finish.

Technical information

The grapes were hand harvested, whole bunch pressed and vinified in temperature controlled stainless steel tanks to retain their youthful fruit character. The wine underwent malolactic fermentation. Base wines from the 2018 vintage were blended with 3% reserve wines from a solera dating back to 2011, resulting in additional aromatic complexity. After bottling, the wine was aged for a minimum of 42 months on lees. Following disgorgement, the wine received 5.75g/l dosage.

Fantastic Fresh Fizz!

Well deserving of all the plaudits! Fresh and citrusy with strong zesty notes. Bought a bottle to try and ordered a case straight after!
