Made from 100% barrel-fermented Pinot Noir and aged on its lees for 5 years, with a further year in cellar before release. This very special, limited edition Blanc de Noirs 2010 is a favourite of ours. Coming from a benchmark year at Wiston, this rich and complex single vineyard wine is brimming with nectarines, strawberries and rhubarb, overlayed with delicious brioche, toasted hazelnut and savoury mineral notes. With its persistent stream of tiny bubbles and a long, fruit-laden finish, we’re very excited about this release.

"Tangy, focused and complex, this is fine, bready and long, with subtle red fruits and a mouth-watering finish." Tim Atkin MW Three Wine Men, May 2018

The beautiful family-run Wiston Estate is nestled in the heart of England’s rolling South Downs in West Sussex. The Wiston Estate vineyard lies on an exceptional, south-facing chalk escarpment similar to Champagne, and planted with the classic grape varieties Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier.

Employing time-honoured methods Wiston produces a sparkling wine of exceptional finesse and quality.

2010 was a benchmark year at Wiston: a vintage of ideal balance between yield and ripeness of fruit.
