Ridgeview Cuvee Merret Bloomsbury Brut 2012

Ridgeview Cuvee Merret Bloomsbury Brut 2012

  • Drink this home-grown hero over French Champagne to keep more pennies in your pocket!
  • The crispness makes it ideal with oily fish such as salmon and smoked trout. It would be difficult to beat a glass of Bloomsbury alongside a refreshing sorbet.
  • 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 its over-the channel neighbours.

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.

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.
