Tasting Notes

From one of the very finest vintages of the past three decades this is already oozing with class and sensuous appeal. It is marvellously complex with ripe aromas of ripe orchard fruit and zesty citrus. The palate just continues the seduction with an array of flavours that reminds you why Champagne is one of the noblest wines of all.

Reviews & Scores

Attractive lime pickle and grapefruit on the nose with a light pastry and spiced berry edge. The palate has intense, punchy appeal, with succulent and powerful fruit and acid drive. Stony finish. Drink now.
94 Points, James Suckling


58% Chardonnay, 42% Pinot Noir. Aim here is to highlight Chardonnay from Cumières, which has only 19% of the planted area. Selection from three lieux-dits in Cumières with particularly chalky soils. 45% made in demi-muid barrels using only the first juice with most finesse from the pressing. No malo. Dosage 6 g/l. Dancing, lively, polished, creamy fruit. (Quite a contrast with the more rugged style of the Lassaigne 2008.) Luxurious and lively. Open. Drink 2017-2025.

TASTING NOTES

All the hallmarks of Grand Cru are here, with brioche and flowers on the nose and an elegant palate which marries notes of lemon grass, gingerbread and honeysuckle. The wine effortlessly combines structure and finesse, and reverberates with a really authoritative Grand Cru crescendo on the finish.

TASTING NOTES

Giacosa’s Spumante is produced using the champagne method using Pinot Noir grapes. Matured on the lees for three years and riddled by hand, this is a softly textured wine with a very elegant mousse. The 2007 vintage has a lovely bready complexity on the nose and the palate is bursting with delicate white stone fruit characters. Delicious with food but...

TASTING NOTES

With a remarkable generosity of spirit, this 2009 Vintage Rosé draws from the best Pinot Noir and Chardonnay grapes from Southern England, yielding a refined yet exuberant wine. Delicate bubbles carry the essence of an English summer: fresh roses, strawberries and impromptu picnics. Extra time on yeast lees gives delicious toasty characters, so Digby’s Rosé is ideal for pre-dinner drinks...
