Expressions of Pinot Noir case of 3 (15% OFF)

£52.55

Pinot Noir is now the most widely planted variety in the UK, surpassing Chardonnay for the first time.  Primarily used as the lead component of many traditional method sparkling wines, it is also the most widely planted variety in Champagne.  However, it is only from Albourne Estate, that you can try three wines made from Pinot Noir grown in the same vineyard in three completely different styles:

  • A traditional bottle-fermented and lees aged white sparkling wine
  • A barrel-matured light-bodied and smooth still red wine
  • A tank fermented refreshing and crisp still white wine

For ENGLISH WINE WEEK  we are offering this 3  bottle case (one bottle of each wine) at a special price of £52.55 (15% off RRP).  The case will include full Tasting Notes.  Compare the wines for yourself to see how winemaking practices can dramatically change the style and character of the wines we make.

Why not ask your friends to order a case and run your own online tasting and compare notes?

Which do you think is the most successful style for us?  We would love to hear your views.

Description

Read any wine book and it will tell you that Pinot Noir is notoriously difficult to grow and it typically suits cooler wine growing regions.  It has been shown that several of its aroma compounds are produced in higher amounts during long, cool seasons compared to early, hot seasons.   It is popular in other cool climate wine producing regions such as Oregon and NZ and of course, Champagne, but is also widely grown in other regions of France such as Burgundy – its spiritual home.

At Albourne Estate, we grow three different clones of Pinot Noir – two from Burgundy and one from Champagne.  All our grapes are hand-picked and those destined for sparkling and white wines are whole-bunch pressed allowing us to split the press juice into different fractions for fermentation and development.  This enables us to select the best components for the sparkling base and still wine base which require different parameters.  2018 is the first year we chose to make red wine from our Pinot Noir.  These bunches were de-stemmed and then crushed and the juice fermented on its skins with careful ‘punch-downs’ to gently extract the tannins and colour before the wine matured for 12 months in Burgundian barrels.

Our Expressions of Pinot Noir case will contains 1 bottle each of:

  • Blanc de Noirs 2013
  • White Pinot Noir 2018
  • Red Pinot Noir 2018
