Nyetimber, one of the UK’s most celebrated sparkling wine producers, has released the new vintage of its Tillington Single Vineyard, the 2010. At around £75 a bottle, this is ambitiously priced, but the debut 2009 was very well received. I reviewed it back in September 2013. So, how is the 2010? I think it’s quite brilliant. Here’s a note, followed by a video of me tasting it on camera with brother-in-law and fizz addict William.
Nyetimber Tillington Single Vineyard 2010 England
This is a blend of Pinot Noir with some Chardonnay from a single site. It’s very pure and really elegant, with a delicious fruitiness and a subtle hint of toast. Linear and fine with a lightness and transparency, as well as pure cherry and pear fruit with a bit of citrus on the finish. Very fine. 93/100
