Exton Park Brut Reserve NV

The Brut Reserve NV is tight and linear with fresh apple and some more developed lemon flavours. Quite quiet for now with some delicate white fruits. Once again the balance and integrity is there for this to open up really well over the next year. Magnums at £65 look like very good value here.

Exton Park Blanc de Noirs NV

The Blanc de Noirs NV seems to have become a welcome fixture in the portfolio. I think the base vintage must have moved on from the last time I tasted as its lovely pear and blossom fragrance was just a touch tangy and direct. With a few more months in bottle this will open up.

Exton Park Rosé NV

The Rosé NV was on majestic form. It has one of the most distinctive fragrances in English Sparkling Wine, with totally joyful raspberry fruit dusted with white pepper and delivered with beautiful clarity on the palate. This is available in Magnum £75, which has to be a seriously good buy. It is frustrating to see it in clear glass, though, so vulnerable to that wonderful fruit being spoilt by light damage.

Exton Park Blanc de Noirs NV

All the Exton wines were showing brilliant, vibrant freshness today. So impressive. The Blanc De Blancs 2011 showed some nice honeyed development, and the Rosé is a unique, pink-quince tinged take on the English style. However it was the super-fresh, creamy apple and macaroon of the Blanc De Noirs NV that I loved. 2 years on lees and 10g/l dosage with no malo or oak usage, it is fabulously pure.
