Description

This is a wonderfully elegant and refined Franciacorta made with 100% Chardonnay.  The palate is soft and creamy, showing peach, apricot and exotic candied fruits alongside perfectly poised acidity and a refreshingly tangy finish.  This wonderful Franciacorta underwent secondary fermentation in bottle (as per Champagne) and was aged on its lees for 24 months prior to disgorging, and then for a further 2 months in bottle prior to release.


The Berlucchi family winery was founded in 1955 by Guido Berlucchi, Franco Ziliani and Giorgio Lanciani. Together, they transformed Franciacorta into one of Italy’s most prestigious regions for the production of sparkling wine. Franciacorta’s renaissance began with Guido Berlucchi’s creation of the very first Classic Method wine in 1961. With a pioneering spirit, Berlucchi introduced and promoted expertise that had not existed in Franciacorta until that point, inspiring many other passionate, forward-thinking producers to follow suit. Together, they transformed this region into the crown jewel of Italian winemaking.

NV Gosset Grande Reserve, Ay, Half Bottle

Champagne Blend

This cuvée has a bright and golden colour. The nose is dominated by the freshness and the fruit. The Chardonnay brings finesse sustained by notes of yellow fruits such as peach and Mirabelle plum. On the palate, the wine is full-bodied and generous. The Pinot Noir of Ay gives its structure. Hawthorn and white flowers merge naturally. Acidity is expressed by citrus fruits.

NV Rose Extra Brut, Langham Estate, Dorset

Champagne Blend

This complex Rosé NV is a blend of 59% Pinot Noir, 5% Pinot Meunier, 36% Chardonnay, and is made from 82% base wine from 2019 and 18% reserve wine.  The wine offers aromas aplenty of cherry bakewell, pink lady apple skin, raspberry yoghurt & wild strawberries. The palate reflects this fresh red berry profile, but it is also more serious & has great depth. Cherry yoghurt, young wild strawberry & raspberry coulée bring the fruit profile to the forefront, whilst a more savoury & saline note rounds off the wine.

Cannonau

The Movviu Pet Nat from Cantina Castiadas is crisp, fresh and light as a feather.  Soft and gentle in the mouth this is a dangerously easy to drink semi-sparkling wine.
