The Keeper - The Times 10 May 2014

A very nice write-up in The Times for Furleigh Estate Classic Cuvee by Jane MacQuitty.

"Get ready for English Wine Week with this brilliant bubbly, one of our greatest methode-champenoise vintage sparklers yet.  Made from the tradiitional champagne trio of Pinot Noir, Pinot Meunier and Chardonnay, but with two-thirds black grapes to one third chardonnay Furleigh oozes champagne-aping finesse only a warm English summer and harvest can bring.  I adored this elegant, rich, ripe, toasty, creamy fizz with lots of tart, tangy, lemon zest fruit on the finish.  It's even better after three years in the cellar."
