Louis Pommery

England Brut Chardonnay Blend

We popped this British beauty to help celebrate a friends birthday from afar and boy was it a delight to drink.

We were kindly sent this sample bottle from Pommery to help celebrate their first British sparkling wine! They’re the first Champagne house to produce an English fizz and wow, I was impressed!

In fact I’d drink it over a few of the big brand NV Champagnes. That’s how well it went down! At approximately $89 a pop I definitely would expect that.

The grapes 🍇 are grown in Hampshire, Southern England and it’s made from the classic champagne grapes with the majority being Chardonnay. It’s Pommery in style from English terroir.

In the glass it’s a brilliant morning sunshine hue. The nose is super fresh with yellow orchard fruits and citrus however it also made me think of vanilla honey on crumpets. The palate is smooth and perfectly rounded. My oh my it’s divine.

All opinions are my own. Drink what you enjoy!

Classic Cuvée Chardonnay Blend

Ming L

The nose displays a nice mix of peach, lime, strawberry, sourdough, and light chalk. Delicate fine mousses. High acidity but with a round edge. Shows a lot more Chard characters once the mousses are settled. Clean crisp finish.

This one was recommended over other more expensive vintage English bottling. Very happy with the choice.

Premier Cru Cyder 1715


Aspall's cyder is a superb house and every type it produces is simple, traditional and very tasty.

Premier Cru has the colour of light summer ripened straw with a lovely deep apple aroma followed by crisp, dry taste.

Paired wonderful with fresh bread and a mature cheddar and chorizo cheese bake.

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!

Landlord The Classic Pale Ale

This is a “flat” beer. They pump it out of the cask and it’s low carbonation. Nice but I like a little fizz. — 8 days ago
