Chapel Down Kit’s Coty Blanc de Blancs 2013

Chapel-down-KitscotywmKit’s Coty Blanc de blancs was added to the Chapel Down range in 2017. This bright English sparkling is made from the Chardonnay planted on the chalky soiled vineyard of that name near Aylesford on the North Downs of Kent, UK.  To add some flesh to the finely textured fizz, 20% of the blend has been barrel matured before bottling and resting on lees for a further three years. With a dosage of nine grams per litre, it shows superb balanc

The barrel treatment and time on lees has given the fruit a fine polish and some toasted almond and vanilla joins the bready, lemon, apple and peach aromas on the palate. This is a classy bottle of bubbles that you might find on wine menus rather than retailers shelves, although you can buy it direct from the winery.
