The sparkling wine
Mike Roberts founded Ridgeview Estate in 1994 with the aim of creating world-class sparkling wines on the South Downs. He chose the site because its soil is the exact same chalk/clay mix as found in Champagne, and the climate is similar too – perfectly suited to Chardonnay and Pinot Noir. Such has been their success that several big Champagne houses have made overtures to buy Ridgeview and Taittinger have bought land nearby. They named this cuvée after the Englishman, Christopher Merret, who discovered the process of making traditional-method sparkling wines some decades before the Champenois, presenting his findings to London’s Royal Society in 1662! Delicate bubbles, fabulous flavour, this sparkler is delicious on its own or with canapés.
