Laithwaites Theale Vineyard Chardonnay 2012

English Quality Sparkling Wine

Our 704 Chardonnay vines were planted in 1998 under the supervision of Thierry Lesne from Champagne. The team from Ridgeview make the wine, following the great Champenois techniques. The 2012 is now very rare and perfectly mature.

The miniscule Theale vineyard hardly compares to the vast vine clad hills and valleys of the Champagne region, but quality wise it most certainly does. Surprised? Well, the climate is quite similar, and we had another secret weapon in the form of a man dubbed “King of Fizz” by The Independent. Mike Roberts enjoys a stellar reputation. The trophy cabinet at his Ridgeview Estate in Sussex is fit to bursting and his wines are served to visiting dignitaries in Buckingham Palace. No surprise then that he managed to convert our top quality, hand tended grapes into something so magnificent. The first vintage won Gold and a place in the world’s Top 10 bubblies. The 2012 (a mere 150 half cases) is every bit as fine. Save for your next celebration.
