Chardonnay/Pinot Noir/Pinot Meunier Blend * 75cl * 12% ABV * West Sussex, England
English fizz really is going from strength-to-strength - the best examples, such as this, rival those Grand Marque Champagnes that we are used to seeing day in, day out in the supermarkets. First planted in 2008, Ambriel have done a remarkable amount in such a short space of time. This is a traditional blend of Chardonnay with Pinot Noir and Meunier, and is rich, with notes of citrus, hazelnut, biscuit and herbs. Direct, pure and fruity with good 'bite'. If you haven't tried English Sparkling with fish and chips, it really is one of those divine food and wine pairings to try before you die!
