Digby Fine English Brut

A sparkling wine from West Sussex England. Digby Fine English Brut is named after Sir Kenelm Digby – 17th century philosopher, scientist and pirate and the son of a gun powder plotter! He was also the bloke to invent the modern wine bottle in the 1630s.

The company was established by American Trevor Clough and Englishman Jason Humphries as a negotiant house similar to what you might find in Champagne. Purchasing wine (and later fruit) from several sources, they released a 2009 vintage brut and rosé that year.

The wines are made at Wiston Estate Winery by Irish winemaker Dermot Sugrue. Vineyards for the NV Brut were sourced from the North and South Downs region of Kent as well as Sussex and Hampshire.

The non-vintage Brut is 40% Pinot noir,  35% Chardonnay, and 25% Pinot Meunier with 24 months of lees contact before blending. It is a blend of the 2012, 2013 and 2014 vintages. The finished wine was aged 24 months in the bottle and then disgorged with a 12 g/l dosage.

Beautiful texture, stonefruit, slate, hints of green apple. Delicious.

Vibrant yet understated, this fizz is in its element at home on a Tuesday evening or at a party celebrating one of life’s big moments. An engaging expression of Digby’s house style, it stems from England’s most luscious Pinot Noir with rich, aged Chardonnay and plummy Pinot Meunier.

PLATINUM 97pts (2019 Decanter)

Toasty, nutty and biscuity on the nose with some evolution evident. The palate is generous but maintains tension with bright acidity, precise green apple fruit and savoury marine notes. Long and intense on the finish
