Points on Wine Review - 92 points

A nose full of citrus peel, spring flowers, stone fruit and a little wild grass, a wave of delicate and yet persistent mousse first hit the palate, this then evolved into a delicate and soft palate of yellow apple, Asian pear a little brioche along with a silky, rich and elegant finish. Has to be one of the top Vintage sparkling wines in England. Really enjoyed the finish on this. 3 years on lees.
