Picture of L'ORMARINS BLANC DE BLANCS 2019
Vigorous and lively bubble with trademark string of pearls rising to the surface. Seaspray, lime zest, chalk and subtler aromas of orange peel is present on the nose. The palate is energetic and tangy with abundant crunchy green apple and lime zip on entry. That vivacity is then tempered and smoothed as the wine morphs into a rich but restrained mouthful of creamy citrus and gentle biscuit from its time on lees. Refined and elegant, it lingers on the aftertaste but never loses its lively youthfulness and seamless integration of fruit, lees and bright acidity.

The wine announces with an eye catching vigorous bubble. Typical yeast and cracker biscuit notes on the nose with lively citrus rind and a briny, maritime nuance is also apparent. The palate succeeds in being both refreshingly vibrant and simultaneously dry. Bright effervescence with creamy lees richness from its time in the bottle, with distinct brioche and sourdough toast notes vying with lively grapefruit and citrus flavours. Elegant, restrained, taut and thrilling, it’s beautifully poised yet equally flamboyant and exuberant! A gentle nutty note lingers on the long tail.

Coral pink hue with a vigorous stream of fine bubbles. Bold strawberry and red berry fruit on the nose. There’s more of this in the mouth – with cherry, strawberry and bold red fruit on entry. The fresh, zesty lemon and citrus zip of acidity adds succulence to the mouthful. A broader creaminess then develops with signature toast and biscuit notes. Balanced and harmonious, the wine is well structured, long and complex but refreshing and vibrant throughout.

Picture of L'ORMARINS PRIVATE CUVÉE 2015
Pale lemon colour, bright and clear, with a hypnotic steady stream of vigorous, fine bubbles. The nose offers up subtle orange blossom with marmalade and oyster shell nuances mingling with baked sourdough bread. Vibrant, energetic fizz with grapefruit, lemon and lime vivacity in the mouth. A trace of salinity is present too, adding to the enjoyment of the crunchy zip and vitality. It then segues into a richer, creamier, genteel and silky smooth mouthful of lees, toast and baked bread tinged with a twist of citrus zest. The maritime notes of briny sea air and oyster shell are present too. Succulent and fresh but also taut, crisp and dry. Lovely tension and restraint but with power and generosity too. Seamless integration and marvelous refinement and persistence of flavour.
