What We're Drinking

 

One of the most serious English Sparkling producers. This historic estate has been in the Goring family since 1743. The tiny 16-acre vineyard is close-planted on a steep south-facing chalk escarpment described as 'similar to the Côte des Blancs' in Champagne. The fruit is picked very selectively with quality being the absolute focus. The grapes are pressed gently using a traditional Coquard press. After three years on the lees this wine, composed of 45% Pinot Noir, 33% Chardonnay & 22% Pinot Meunier, is hand disgorged and balanced with a minimal dosage of just 4g/L. It has a fine counterbalance between toasty richness and power from the wines élevage in Burgundian French Oak barrels, with racy acidity, tension and a focused chalky minerality.

Winemaker Interview: Duncan Arnot-Meyers of Arnot-Roberts

“It’s good to have a partner you’ve known since second grade,” Duncan Arnot-Meyers told me at the end of the 2007 harvest. He was referring to his collaborator and childhood friend Nathan Roberts, a second generation cooper, who was off building the French oak barrels they’d use for the new vintage of Arnot-Roberts.
