Judges comments “Ripe malty fresh bready nose leading to a juicy mouthwatering palate of fresh strawberries, lemon rind and grapefruit. Long rich crafted finish”. Gerard was a great family friend, an artist, cartoonist, musician, humourist and broadcaster; a constant visitor to our London home during my childhood.Michael’s tasting notes – This International Gold Medal winner will beat most mid-range Champagnes, it uses the traditional Champagne grapes, has a real depth of flavour and a lengthy finish. This wine changes people perception of English sparkling wines.
