The first to make the wine world stand up and take notice...

Few wineries in the world have dared to take on Champagne, but that’s exactly what Nyetimber owner and chief executive Eric Heerema and winemaker Cherie Spriggs have done. Nyetimber were the first in England to choose Chardonnay, Pinot Meunier and notoriously fickle Pinot Noir - the revered trinity of grapes that make Champagne.

Nyetimber are now established as England's leading sparkling wine producers and have succeeded in the original aim of creating sparkling wine to rival Champagne.

Indeed, they have gone one better by baffling top wine judges and triumphing against the established names of Champagne in blind tastings. Key to Nyetimber’s success is the estate’s south-facing vineyards that lie on a combination of sandy and chalk soils, which mirrors those of Champagne remarkably closely.

Nyetimber Classic Cuvee is elegant and supremely poised with tantalising aromas of citrus fruit and brioche, leading to a wonderfully generous and complex palate. This is a beautiful bubbly worthy of the most memorable celebrations.

Tasting note

Lovely pale gold and gentle, fine bubbles. Toasty, spicy and complex aromas showing wonderful development after extended ageing in our cellar (usually more than three years). The palate supports these complex aromas with honey, almond, pastry and baked apple flavours. Very fine and elegant with a great combination of intensity, delicacy and length

Perfect food match

Lemon Meringue Pie with Nyetimber Classic Cuvée

Lemon meringue pie

This may seem an unusual pairing, but the sweetness of the meringue married with tart lemon curd complements the brioche and citrus flavours in the wine. A glass of this iconic English sparkling wine would be a perfect accompaniment to this dessert.
