1086 Prestige Cuvée 2010
1086 Prestige Cuvée 2010 is Nyetimber’s magnum opus. Fashioned from their finest West Sussex estate-grown fruit, it spent seven years ageing on the lees and almost two in the bottle post-disgorgement. The result is a world-class sparkling wine brimming with energy and notes of orchard fruit, pecan pie, baklava, tarte aux pommes, white Burgundy, nougat, mushroom risotto, oyster shell, sea spray, toast and a squeeze of refreshing grapefruit juice. The only downside is that only 12,000 bottles were produced, so availability is likely to be fleeting. Especially as we think it is even better than the last vintage, which beat prestige cuvées from the likes of Lanson, Charles Heidsieck, Dom Perignon, Louis Roederer and Philipponnat in a blind tasting attended by industry experts including Jancis Robinson, and the next vintage of 1086 won't be until the release of the 2013.
We recommend taking your time over this benchmark-setting sparkling wine, not only will it improve in the bottle, but it also evolves beautifully in the glass. And on that matter, we suggest serving it in a wine glass, this will allow it to unfurl like a peacock.
Launched a millennia after the ‘Nitimbreha’ estate was first recorded in the Domesday Book and 30 years since Nyetimber planted their first vines, the 1086 Premium Cuvée Range looks set to propel English Sparkling Wine to new heights and will only be crafted in exceptional vintages. Not content with being just one of the UK’s most celebrated producers and rivalling the competition in Champagne, these wines may put clear water between Nyetimber and the rest of the field. The team of Cherie Spriggs, Brad Greatrix and Eric Heerema fell in love with our south coast because, from a vinous perspective, “there’s something really special happening in England.” Prized for the elegance of their wines, Nyetimber is a force to be reckoned with on an international scale.£20 per 100.00ml
