TASTING NOTES

SLEEK and STEELY

The 2018 vintage, a Methode Traditionnelle blanc de blancs,
exudes freshness with scents of tart apple core spritzed with
citrus ( lemon/lime/grapefruit ). Its time on the lees (24 months)
has imparted varied flavours of orange blossom, mandarin
skin, recurring tart apple with a sheen of creaminess. Simply
put: an upbeat swish of bubbles with an edgy acidity bestowed
by County minerality. BRUT-ifull stuff!!

Le nouveau millésime 2018 de notre Cuvée Peter Huff offre
des arômes frais de pomme et d’agrumes tels que le citron,
le citron vert et le pamplemousse. En bouche, des saveurs
de fleur d’oranger, de peau de mandarine et de pomme
verte. Une texture ronde et presque crémeuse grâce à un
vieillissement de deux ans sur lies fines, marquée par une
pointe d’acidité typique de notre terroir.

Fine toasty hints here with sweet pear and citrus fruit. Nice volume and freshness with a bit of grip on the finish.
