Tasting Notes

Created from Estate grown Chardonnay grapes, our Classic Method blanc de blancs embodies English purity and style. Pale gold with a fine mousse, this wine has classic aromas of citrus and green apple, balanced with subtle, toasted brioche notes and distinctive minerality, ending in a rich, persistent finish.

Reviews

"Especially Recommended. Long mineral finish, adds the little extra. Excellent English Sparkling wine with soul." - Botti.No    

“Sourced from the chalk soils in the North Downs of Kent, the latest vintage release of Simpsons’ White Cliffs Blanc de Blancs presents a more mineral, linear expression compared to the 2018 vintage. Aged for 36 months on lees, it showcases toasty lemon sorbet on the nose and palate, with plenty of lime zest, kiwi and crunchy green apple peel, leading to a cleansing, precise finish.” – 90 Points – Sylvia Wu for Decanter Magazine
