2009 Nyetimber 1086 Blanc Prestige Cuvée
Region: England, Sussex
Grape Varieties: Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, Pinot Meunier
Sparkling, dry white; simply stunning! | Caviar, blinis optional
This historic estate in England’s sleepy South Downs broke the mould through the work of Head Winemaker Cherie Spriggs together with her husband Brad Greatrix. Growing only the three classic Champagne grapes, which slowly ripen to perfection in sheltered sites, Nyetimber has shaken up the wine world as it lives up to its mission to rival the world’s best sparkling wines.
Nyetimber's 1086 Blanc is the very pinnacle of their winemaking, and the peak of English sparkling wine, combining generous fruit from the very best parcels and the skills and dedication of the winemaking team. We are fortunate to have an allotment of the 2009, its inaugural vintage, which is now starting to show biscuity, savoury complexity, and which makes it a perfect match for not just caviar, but also multi-layered, textural dishes.
