Hambledon Vineyard Classic Cuvée: A Celebration of English Sparkling Wine

A Sparkling Gem from Hampshire

The Hambledon Vineyard Classic Cuvée is a triumph of British sparkling wine. Produced from grapes grown exclusively on the south-east facing slopes of Windmill Down in Hampshire, this exquisite wine showcases the quality and finesse that English vineyards are capable of achieving. At The General Wine Co., we are proud to offer this exceptional sparkling wine online and in our shops located in Liphook and Petersfield.

A Blend of Tradition and Finesse

The Classic Cuvée is a meticulous blend of all three classic Champagne grapes: Chardonnay (52%), Pinot Noir (32%), and Pinot Meunier (17%). The grapes are hand-picked on the estate, ensuring only the finest fruit makes it into the bottle. Following fermentation, the wine spends a minimum of 35 months ageing on its lees, a process that imbues it with complexity and depth.

Aromatic Elegance

On the nose, the Hambledon Classic Cuvée is a symphony of aromas. Delicate floral notes of magnolia and lily mingle with hints of fresh sourdough bread. A touch of minerality adds intrigue, while a core of ripe stone fruits, including greengage, red plums, and dessert apples, provides a sweet counterpoint.

A Vibrant Palate

The palate of the Classic Cuvée is lively and energetic. The structured acidity cuts through the richness of the fruit, creating a refreshing and balanced experience. The wine displays a remarkable depth of flavour, with hints of brioche and honey emerging alongside the orchard fruits. The finish is long and lingering, leaving a pleasant and lasting impression.

Food Pairing Perfection

The Hambledon Classic Cuvée's versatility makes it a perfect partner for a variety of dishes. Its vibrant acidity and fruit character make it ideal as an apéritif, whetting the appetite before a meal. It also pairs beautifully with seafood, particularly lighter options like oysters, scallops, and white fish.

For something more substantial, consider pairing the Classic Cuvée with poultry dishes or creamy risottos. The wine's richness can also complement vegetarian options, such as roasted vegetables or mushroom wellington.

A Touch of Luxury for Every Occasion

The Hambledon Vineyard Classic Cuvée is a sparkling wine that is perfect for any celebration. Its elegant complexity and exceptional quality make it a wine that will impress even the most discerning palate. Whether you are hosting a dinner party, enjoying a special occasion, or simply treating yourself, the Classic Cuvée is sure to elevate the experience.
