Ridgeview Cuvee Merret Bloomsbury Brut 2011

Ridgeview Cuvee Merret Bloomsbury Brut 2011

  • Drink this home-grown hero over French Champagne to keep more pennies in your pocket!
  • Bloomsbury was served to the Royals for the Queen's official Jubilee celebrations & Jancis Robinson chose it in her Top 25 Worldwide Sparkling Wines 2011.
  • Young, fresh and strawberry infused. A lovely hint of brioche. Fantastic!

Guess where this attractive Champagne copycat comes from? West Sussex. It's true! With a little help from some great summer seasons and a handful of French experts, top-class wines such as this have begun emerging from the Ridgeview vineyards. Made with Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier, this fresh, accessible bubbly is a real talking point and a serious contender to it's over the channel neighbours.

Michael Roberts

Winemaker: Michael Roberts

Winery: Ridgeview Estate

Country: England & Wales

The Ridgeview Estate in West Sussex is dedicated solely to the production of the highest quality sparkling wine from traditional Champagne varieties and methods, with winemaker, Michael Roberts, at the helm.

This vintage will be disgorged over a period of 18 months and as it ages more both on the cork and on lees, distinct breadiness will become more noticeable than at this first disgorgement. Fruit characters are very dominant with Chardonnay bringing not only citrus & grapefruit characters, but some tropical fruit. Brioche flavours will continue to develop and deepen over the next 2-3 years. Lovely, fine mousse with a light gold colour. Ready to drink now or keep for 3-4 years.
