Back in August we were lucky enough to try one of the very first, very limited, unreleased bottlings of Roebuck Estates Blanc de Noirs 2015 in magnum and couldn’t have been more impressed. Made from hand-picked Pinot Noir grapes grown on the estate’s picturesque Roman Villa Vineyard near Petworth. These grapes are gently pressed and then partially fermented in Burgundian oak barrels with a further 48 months minimum bottle-ageing. Golden copper in hue with delicate bubble. The nose reveals delicate aromas of baked apples, ripe stone fruits and freshly baked pastry notes. A rich yet beautifully balanced wine revealing caramalised apple, red fruits and toasted brioche notes on a long-lingering finish.
Roebuck Estates Blanc de Noirs 2015 Magnum is the perfect celebration fizz!
“The 2015 Blanc de Noirs, made from 100% Pinot Noir, has a delightful nose of strawberry, orange blossom, white peach and a touch of rosehip.” Neal Martin, Vinous.com
