Blancs de Blancs 2007

English sparkling wine Nyetimber has released a 2007 Blancs de Blancs.

The 12%, 100% Chardonnay sparkling wine is available in the UK only and is priced at £35.99.

As the sponsor of fashion show London Collection: Men, the Sussex-based winery unveiled the vintage at the Hospital Club in London.

The company said the association represented “an ongoing commitment to championing the ‘best of British’”.

Head winemaker at Nyetimber, Cherie Spriggs said: “We wanted to celebrate the start of a new year with the launch of our Nyetimber Blanc de Blancs 2007 here at London Collections: Men.

“Mirroring our commitment to quality, excellence and craftsmanship, we are proud to be associated with these designers and to help support the work of the British Fashion Council.”

According to Nyetimber, tasting notes are as follows: Straw-yellow colour with delicate hints of green. A rich noise of bergamots, Philadelphus and Granny Smith apples followed by racy citrus fruits and focused minerality on the palate.
