Digby Wine

Reserve Fine English Brut Sparkling Blend 2010

At the home of Dean and Margy Glasgow who have a share in Digby. Very similar to a good French Champagne and compared to Nyetimber. Bready aromas with Citrus. Good intensity and length developing complexity at 9 years. Very impressive. — 4 years ago

Hattingley Valley

Classic Cuvée Champagne Blend

While Nyetimber (2007 BdB) still stands as a reference point for me, I’m constantly impressed with the generally high quality of sparkling wines from England. — 6 years ago

1086 Chardonnay Blend 2010

Medium lemon straw . Fine and consistent perlage . Quite yeasty and autolytic in character with brown bread , followed by lemon peel and camomile , elderflower . On the palate quite dry and austere at first , those brown bread yeasty notes coming through with citrus and a hint of ginger. Quite long and with good acidic backbone , and mouth-filling presence on the palate . Very good now , though like the Tillington single vineyard from this vintage , absolutely no rush . Now and over the next 5 to even 10 years . — 8 months ago

English Sparkling Grand Vintage Brut 2010

A little mystery behind this twelve year-old English sparkling bottled by supermarket Morrisons, produced by ‘Rolling Green Hills Ltd’ who are believed to be Nyetimber. So, for £20, how does this wine made by the UK’s best stand up?

Pretty darn well.

The nose is a dead ringer for Champagne, not that that should be its goal, but I would definitely pin this as such rather than English had I tasted blind. Quite rounded on the nose, with plentiful aromas of toasted brioche, yellow apple, pear and burnt butter. The palate is open and generous, fat and buttery, and it glides through to a satisfying finish with great balance.

I have to say, this is incredibly impressive stuff given the context. Highly recommended!

📝 I say a wine I’ve been dying to try for donkeys years & it sure delivers but it’s darn expensive Ho bloody Ho - at least it’s not over syrupy like many from here 😉
