Nyetimber Blanc de Blancs 2010

EnglandNyetimber is one of England's most lauded and recognized fizz producers, and one that believes in traceability. A code on the back of the bottle allows you to trace this chardonnay at www.nyetimber.com/wineinfo. From West Sussex's green sand and chalk soils, this was parcel-pressed in a Coquard press, with elevage on the lees in stainless steel before going to bottle where it spent another five years on the lees. Striking acidity and chalk draws this linear streamlined wine along the slick, greyhound frame. The lees lining the mid comforts that acid line, supporting it to a lengthy, lemon pith and light toast finish. Beauty tension and energy here; will gain more complexity with time.
