Today I launch my English Sparkling Wine Report 2017. There’s been a lot of interest in the progress of English sparkling wine over recent years, and I have been busy trying as many of them as possible. I thought that it would be useful to gather all my notes together in one place, and attempt to try to capture a snapshot of where things are.
This report contains an overview of where things stand, and a list of my top 10 producers. But the bulk of it focuses on the wines: there are profiles of the leading producers, together with tasting notes of 110 different sparkling wines, rated on a 100-point scale. If you are interested in what is going on with English fizz, I hope this report will be of some use. I’d like to do a follow-up next year, and with such a fast-changing scene, regular updating will be necessary.
