Sparkling Pointe


Brut Classic Cuvée Sparkling Blend

Quite pale straw colour . On the nose ripe lemon peel and , baked apple pastry notes. On the palate quite tart acidity , those citrus peel notes , refreshing but with decent body . There is a creaminess on the palate and on the finish the dosage is just noticeable though it balances well with the high acidity , ok length lemon pith finish . I think this would be identifiable as English Sparkling wine in a blind tasting , the style is quite classic and relatively lean with high acidity, it’s own distinct style . This is perfect to drink now , the entry level Nyetimber cuvee , and a pretty good entry level wine at that — 16 days ago

One of the bottles I provided for a co-hosting with Mark at the City Club wine group. The starter before Mark’s 1979 Schramsberg mag and 1980 Montelena mag.

Tasty, but I found this different than the 2014 (still haven’t popped the 2015). Salmon color in the glass with a dash of pink. Faint strawberry marscapone, red berry fruit aromatically. Layers of strawberries and a distinct mineral and rose note, but this seemed lighter and less fruit forward than the 2014. Lovely finish. I felt the 2014 had loads of time ahead of it when I had it, but for me, this seemed either in an odd spot or at a point where it’s time to enjoy. I’d wager it’s more of the former.
