Bluebell Vineyard Estates Late Disgorged Blanc de Blancs 2008 English Sparkling Wine.

Late Disgorged means aged longer on yeast lees, making it richer, creamier, more refined and elegant.  Light golden in colour with soft, gentle bubbles, this wine has a savoury developed autolytic nose from over six years ageing on the lees.

On the palate there is lime-zest freshness with a good mousse, flavour intensity and a creamy texture.  Fresh lemon and lime citrus flavours form the backbone of the wine, along with red fruits and brioche characters leading to a balanced, long finish.
