Ridgeview Magnum £70.00
Pale gold in colour with a steady stream of bubbles and a sumptuous mousse. The nose imparts lemon freshness with brioche intensity. More than 10 years of lees ageing concentrates the intense bready flavours whilst retaining beautiful citrus fruit characters with excellent acidity. The finish lingers memorably on the palate.
Drink now or keep for another few years to develop the brioche.
Serve to celebrate special and memorable life occasions with light bready canapés or shellfish, or just to be indulgently enjoyed.

“I drunk this particular wine on Christmas Day 2010 and was in no doubt it was one of the finest sparkling wines I had ever drunk. It certainly has to be a contender for the best English wine ever made - and competition is pretty tough these days!”

“ The 2001 Ridgeview Grosvenor Magnum Blanc de Blancs is without doubt one of the finest, if not THE finest, UK sparkling wines yet produced. It has a superb lemon-infused brioche nose; on the palate it is full, with superb, mouth cleansing, tingling acidity. Pure pleasure on the palate.”
