Tasting Note

Rich, yet pale lemon in colour. Notes of citrus fruit and cooked apples are layered with a toasty richness and hint of truffle. Delicate bubbles linger on the palate leading to a beautifully balanced finish. This wine is drinking well now but will undoubtedly, continue to improve with additional bottle age.

Blending and Ageing

The fruit destined for our Classic Cuvée 2014 is harvested by hand and whole-bunch pressed. Partial fermentation in the finest French oak casks, followed by long lees ageing for a minimum of 36 months, gives this wine additional richness, depth and complexity.

Vintage Description

2014 is a vintage that will be looked back on fondly. Budburst was earlier than normal and the weather stayed warm and dry through to the end of June allowing a very even flowering. Some welcome rain arrived in August and it became increasingly clear that we had a large harvest on our hands. Picking started towards the end of September and ran into October with large yields of quality fruit sent to press.

Reviews

“A new one to me and by God, it’s good. The nose is like marmalade with bitter Seville orange notes, lots of ripe fruit on the palate too with a full nutty finish. Close your eyes and you could be drinking Pol Roger.”  Henry Jeffreys, BBCGoodFood.Com

“This sparkling is a new discovery; only the second vintage, yet mightily impressive. Lemon curd and spice sit over a yeasty, brioche-infused core – it’s intense but fresh.”  Susy Atkins, Telegraph Magazine

“It’s both rich and sophisticated, with delicate bubbles and great balance. You get sumptuous citrus fruit on the nose – think bitter orange and fresh lemons, along with cooked apples that lead to a toasty taste with hints of truffle… Goes very well with mussels or scallops.”  Kate Hilpern, Independent

“This newly released vintage is the finest wine to date from the brilliant Roebuck, made from chardonnay, pinot noir and pinot meunier grapes… This is a sultry, suave, seamless beauty.”  Matthew Jukes, Daily Mail Weekend Magazine

“An attractive and quite intense bouquet of baked Braeburn apples, a touch of pear. The palate is fresh with a creamy texture, harmonious and delineated. Those baked apples define the finish, and there is a welcome pinch of spice on the aftertaste. A fine cuvée from Roebuck Estates.”  Neal Martin, Vinous.com
