Tasting Notes

Chapel Down Rosé Brut has an enticing pale pink colour. The Pinot Noir really shines out in this elegant English Sparkling wine; it’s one of the most elegant pink fizzes we’ve tasted. Delicate aromas of strawberries and raspberries and background notes of toasty shortbread lead into a crisp, fresh palate of light red fruits.

It has a fine creamy mousse which contributes to the light and effortless style and beautiful balance of this pink fizz which is the equal of many (and more expensive) champagnes.

It is made from grapes grown in Sussex and Kent, in the traditional, Champagne method; spending up to 3 years on its lees.

Well recognised by a cluster of Silver Medals in 2016 – Decanter, IWC, IWSC and Champagne & Sparkling World Championships 2016!

“Beautiful berry nose of strawberries, raspberries and cream. Quite dry citrus bite eases into smooth luxury berry mix. Good dry finish with lasting fruity, berry flavours.”

 

“A brut rosé with character, structure and charm.” John Mobbs of Great British Wine 2016
