Chardonnay

Chardonnay is one of the most-widely planted varieties in the world. Arguably not the most characterful grape, hence its common ageing in oak, yet at its pinnacle in Burgundy it produces some of the greatest (and certainly most expensive) white wines in the world. Look out for unoaked Chardonnay, it can make a pleasant change, and usually goes down very well with all those people who say they...

Cottonworth, Sparkling Rosé, Brut, NV

From very well-sited south facing vineyards in the Test Valley just a few miles west of us in Hampshire, Hugh Liddell's pink, from Pinot Noir, Pinot Meunier and Chardonnay, is a stunning English sparkling wine. Pinot Meunier, Pinot Noir, Chardonnay and a little Pinot Précoce (so called as an earlier ripening variant of Pinot Noir). Pale onion skin tone. Apples and fraises des bois character, with a creamy finish. Now-2022

Pale salmon pink. Fine mousse. Terrific strawberries and cream character, showing great ripeness and definition. "Wow - very fruity! Incredible strawberry and cherry fruit, the like of which I've never tasted - still less in an English wine! This is thanks to the use of Pinot Précoce, apparently. So bright and ripe. Hard to say if it's typically English, but I do love its boldness. 17/20", Richard Hemming on www.jancisrobinson.com, 19th November 2013

"What I like so much about this relative newcomer brand is that the wines are perfectly ready to drink from the off. The balance and harmony in this rosé is spot on. The silkiness of fruit and crispness of acidity is pinpoint perfect. So often, young sparklers parade too much raw acidity on the finish and this makes them (literally) hard to swallow. Cottonworth has managed to perfect the art of making wines which flow, uninterrupted across the palate. The colour and perfume on this rosé is ravishing and it is not too dear either. I am a fan and I would love you to try this bottle against your favourite, line-priced rosé Champagne and see what you think. My money is on Cottonworth.", Matthew Jukes, Money Week, 4th April 2019

Absolutely loving the sun case, what a great way to be introduced to new wines.

Just wanted to say thank you so much for sending my order of 2 x Domaine Begude Rosé to my son and daughter-in-law - I couldn't believe that they received it within a day of my placing the order with you. That is IMPRESSIVE, especially given the current trying times.
