A generously ripe touch of apricot hovers before blending in with ripe Amalfi lemon and Granny Smith notes. Brightness and light seem to be at the core of this wine. The mousse is exuberant and flavors are brisk and urgent. Subtle autolysis provides a calm backdrop to all the lively, fruity action in the foreground. The balance is harmonious and flavors are brisk, fruity and pure The long-lasting finish conveys seriousness. Lovely now, the wine will evolve with bottle age. Drink 2017-2022. (AK)
Brut Andrew Weeber planted his first vines in Appledore in 2004, and now farms 99 acres in Kent and 54 in West Sussex, all planted to chardonnay, pinot noir and meunier. This wine is 55 percent pinot noir and 27 percent meunier, the balance chardonnay, left on its lees in bottle for 28 months. It’s grapey, honest wine with buttery poached-pear flavors and an umami undertone. A sleek aperitif.
Really lovely creamy and fresh apple aromas – great concentration and lively acid. Still very, very young – not much autolysis on the nose – but the palate finishes with a very classy bready character. The purity of fruit is a thing to behold! 17+/20 points. (RH)
