The Finest Bubble Wiston Estate review
In February, The Finest Bubble sat down with Richard Bampfield MW to review Wiston Estate’s critically acclaimed Blanc de Blancs 2015 and the Library Collection Blanc de Blancs 2010 (disgorged in 2018).
The Library Collection Blanc de Blancs 2010
The first release of this collection, this vintage Blanc de Blancs is a celebration of wines’ ability to age and the quality of which English Sparkling wines can achieve.
2010 was a benchmark year at Wiston – since the release of Wiston’s first Cuvée from the 2008 vintage, small parcels have been held back from the best vintages to allow them to further mature and develop.
Blanc de Blancs 2015
Released in early 2020, after the extraordinary success of the previous vintage 2011 Wiston Blanc De Blancs, aged in 50% mature Burgundy oak barrels and 50% stainless steel, this single-vineyard, single-vintage, single-varietal Blanc de Blancs is perfect for immediate drinking and will also cellar beautifully.
