Taylors Pinot Noir Chardonnay Brut Cuvée NV

A first for Taylors (I never know whether to add an apostrophe or not, they don't, but to me it seems kind of wrong) in their 40+ year history, a traditional method aka bottle fermented fizzer, produced under both screwcap and cork/ cage.

Chalky lemon, brioche, a bread and butter pudding note here.  Lemon zest and stone fruit on entry - quite a hard/ mineral character to contend with, rounded out by a litle toasty complexity.

Mineral hints on the finish, good lingering quality. Lacks a little finesse, but drinks well. An aperitif style.  88 - Good

Tasted on: 9th October, a Flower Day
