Renegade London Blanc de Noirs

Urban winery Renegade London has begun the pre-sale for its new English sparkling wine – a blanc de noirs costing £100 a bottle. Made from Pinot Noir and Meunier grown in Suffolk from the 2016 vintage, just 800 bottles have been produced. At £100, it is a competitor for the most expensive wine made in England, rivalling Chapel Down’s single-vineyard label Kit’s Coty, and more expensive than Nyetimber’s single-vineyard Tillington.

The wine has been whole-bunch pressed and the juice fermented in ex-Burgundy barrels. It is currently undergoing secondary fermentation and will remain on its lees until August 2018, “in the crypt of a well-known London church,” says Smith.

RRP: £100.
