Nyetimber Classic Cuvée 2010 Vintage, West Sussex, England - 1.5l
Nyetimber have long been considered the gold standard for English sparkling wine, and this 2010 vintage is arguably the house's finest hour. It's also something of a collector's item, marking the final production of sparkling wine with a distinct Pinot Noir bias before Nyetimber switched their attention to multi-vintage produce. Make no mistake, though, this is not a wine to leave gathering dust in a cellar. Eminently drinkable at this point, the 2010 Cuvee has aged immaculately. The fresh and distinctive ripe lemon sharpness is tempered by hints of apple, blackcurrant and buttery brioche, before giving way to hints of honey, roasted mushrooms, and just a pinch of hay. This is the taste of the great British summer, ready to be enjoyed at any time of year.
- 51% Pinot Noir
- 36% Chardonnay
- 13% Pinot Meunier
WHAT IT GOES WITH
Pour yourself a glass of the 2010 Cuvee on a seafront terrace and pair it with fresh seafood and oysters for the perfect pairing.
ABOUT THE VINEYARD
Regarded as one of the finest sparkling wine producers in England, Nyetimber planted its first vines in 1988. The house now owns seven vineyards across Kent, Hampshire and Surrey. This was the first sparkling wine to blend Chardonnay, Pinor Noir and Meunier. All grapes are grown to Grande Marque standard, and every bottle of Nyetimber features exclusively 100% homegrown grapes.
