Blanc de Blancs-Wiston Estate, England

A late disgorged elegant British effervescence that offers an inclination of a creamy and silky texture. Briochy aromas in the first instance, connecting subsequently to dry aromas of honeydew melon and quince leading to a lovely nutty finish on the palate. A perfect way to celebrate New Years.
