Squerryes, Late Disgorged Brut, Kent, United Kingdom 2011 Squerryes, Late Disgorged Brut, Kent, United Kingdom 2011

The drama and intensity of great traditional-method English sparkling wines is now widely recognised. What English wine creators are just beginning to grasp, though, is just how propitious their fine sparkling wines are for extended ageing, in large part due to the extraordinary, flavour-saturated acid profiles bequeathed by the long, luminous yet always fretful English summers. The aromas of this outstanding 2011 Kentish wine are expressive, harmonious and refined after a decade of slow maturation -- all orchard fruits, wet stone and damp woodland. The wine is deep, intense and searching, with a driving acid core which in turn grows resonantly aromatic as the wine and its fine foam subside on your tongue. Huge character here; time has brought finesse.
