Black Chalk, Classic 2016

RRP £34

After 26 months on the lees in bottle, this classic ‘Champagne blend’ from ex Hattingley Valley’s Jacob Leadley’s new venture, is exotic in aroma with an underlying hint of yeastiness rich and full-bodied in its peachy flavours with a fluffy-textured hint of toastiness and a pristine fruit quality that’s rounded out by more than a soupçon of sweetness, yet finishing dry.
