Breaky Bottom Cuvee Reynolds Stone 2010

One of my favourite English fizz - perfect for celebrating Easter.

Made by Peter Hall at Breaky Bottom Vineyards near Lewes, Sussex.  Peter first planted vines in 1974 - one of the old timers in the South Downs.  He owns just a few hectares and also tends 40 lambs which graze between the vines.  He names his cuvees after inspirational friends and family & only makes small quantities of each cuvee.  This cuvee is named after the famous English engraver who created Breaky Bottom's iconic logo back in the 1970s. This classic blend of Chardonnay, Pinot Noir & Pinot Meunier made by traditional method and aged for 6 years on the lees won a Gold Medal at the International Wine & Spirit Competition.

A mature delight with honey, brioche intense bouquet, baked apple, rich nutty length, so complex...seriously good.
