46% Chardonnay, 43% Pinot Noir, 11% Pinot Meunier. I feel as though the selections made for this wine were not about which wines from this excellent harvest shouted loudest; it seems more like an assemblage of the most refined, textured wines in the Nyetimber palate. The wine exudes this brilliant aura of coolness and freshness, with a beautiful sweet touch of creamy oyster shell framing Asian pear, greengage and sweet anise notes. A little gingerbread and floral honey shows some promise of development, whilst there is a real acceleration of ripe energy towards the finish which elevates this cuvée. This is just coming into its own.
