Chapel Down Brut NV review - WineUncorked: Wine Reviews and Tips

This English sparkling wine is made in Kent by Chapel Down winery and is a stonker – much better in flavour than many equivalent French Champagnes selling at the same price. Plus it’s made in the same way too with the bubbles coming from a second fermentation in the bottle with the same grape varieties (a mixture of Chardonnay and Pinots). The result is fruity and floral with that baked bread flavour that is expected in sparkling wines but often doesn’t taste quite like the real thing. Well this one does. A nice wine for when you want to fork out around £25 a bottle.
