Hambledon Classic Cuvée NV, 2017 Base

This tasting saw the latest 2017-based Classic Cuvée down at 4.5 g/l, where a finely-sanded texture delivers clear and elegant citrus fruit. The style is frank, yes, but the freshness is appreciable. It really needs some more time, though. At 4.5g it is a touch severe with this youthfulness. I would expect the score to climb with later disgorgements of this vintage base.

15.5
