No.1 Estate Cuvée Virginie 2016

No.1 Estate Cuvée Virginie 2016

Drunk to celebrate the inaugural Méthode Marlborough Day, and as a delicious starting point to a gourmet night of wine and food. A vintage wine with 3 years and 9 months on lees.

Appetising on the nose with lemon biscuit, salted almond, hay, pink apple and buttered toast. 

Fine mousse bubbles and a pure, vibrant acidity. A bone dry expression – taut and polished. Yeasty autolysis brioche characters with a crisp salinity balance the concentrated palate of white peach, apricot, nutmeg and mandarin peel. A lingering, generous and silken finish. 95pts.
