Digby Fine English was created to produce the ultimate expression of English sparkling wine. Drawing inspiration from the history of English invention, the company's namesake is Kenelm Digby, the Englishman who invented the modern wine bottle in the 1630s. This adventurous producer takes a unique approach to producing world-class sparkling wine: that of négociant. It cultivates long-term relationships with some of the best vineyards in England then focuses its energies on the artform of blending, where true quality is born. The 2009 Reserve Brut is Digby's flagship blend led by English-grown Chardonnay, with its fresh creaminess and mineral structure, supported by Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier which lend a stunning, long finish. A dedication to expressing English terroir and three years of lees ageing are testaments to Digby's commitment to quality. Critics concur: Tom Stevenson's Champagne & Sparkling Wine World Championships declared this wine the best English sparkling wine in the world. Their tasting notes: "Seriously complex, amazingly sleek and very smart sparkling wine... an elegant nose with some pretty gunpowder complexity." Not bad for their first vintage ever.
