Chapel Down Pinot Reserve 2004

Chapel Down Pinot Reserve 2004A multi-award winner, a fine stream of bubbles predicts quality, and there is that. Lively and vibrant, this has good depth, delightful notes of brioche and nuts on the nose, and an elegant, well balanced palate with a clean finish.

A blend of the Pinot brothers – Noir and Blanc – its fab complexity, makes it good with food as well as on its own. Toast in the festivities or tackle the smoked salmon blinis with glass in hand.

RRP: £25, at winery, online, 120 Majestic branches.
