I’ve tried Jacob Leadley’s Black Chalk sparkling wines a few times now, and I’ve been really impressed. On this latest showing, I reckon this is one of the best UK sparklers out there.
Black Chalk Classic 2015 England
Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier, with some barrel fermentation used for the base wines. This is really delicate and refined with good acidity and fine lemony fruit. Lovely texture and beautifully integrated acidity. Pristine, pure flavours with nice mouthfeel. So delicate with purity and balance. World class. 93/100
