Our Bloomsbury is Chardonnay dominant, supported by the fullness of Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier.
A light golden colour with a fine, persistent mousse. Citrus fruit aromas with hints of melon and honey. Chardonnay dominance brings finesse, along with crisp freshness. The Pinots add depth and character leading to a beautifully balanced finish. Will age gracefully over time as the Chardonnay matures.
Drink now or age for three to four years.
An excellent accompaniment to shellfish and bread-based canapés. The crispness makes it ideal with fish such as salmon and smoked trout. A wonderful celebration wine.

"Subtle, dry and wonderfully zesty with real finesse and sophisticated length. Delicious and serious."
Jancis Robinson MW, Financial Times
“Very fine fizz, worth every penny. It’s decidedly champagne-like, with a rich, creamy texture, good depth of flavour, and crisp, tiny bubbles."
Suzy Atkins, The Telegraph
"If you want to see what all the sparkling wine fuss is about, crack open the Ridgeview Merret Bloomsbury whose clean, appley, nutty, lemony palate is summer in a glass."
Jane MacQuitty, The Times
