England’s Finest Sparkling Wines Evening

Friday, 3rd April 2020 @ 6:30 pm - 9:30 pm



England’s Finest Sparkling Wines Evening


Join us for a very special Evening at Brackenfield Village Hall Friday 3rd April…

We are pleased to present this special evening tasting for ticket holders only.  An informal and special evening to enjoy some very special wines and a great exclusive dégustation experience!  Each of our special wine club tasting events aims to be a little bit serious, after all we’ll be drinking some very special wines, but not too serious, so there is always an element of fun and we aim match up the wine with some tasty light canapés and cheeses.

This extra special wine tasting evening will cost £50 per person, consisting of six flights of wine and will be strictly limited to 20 people. There will be simple but tasty canapés and cheeses, which are included in the price.

This exclusive and prestige event is planned for Friday 3rd April at 6.30pm at Brackenfield Village Hall, on the village green and the nearest postcode is DE55 6AN.  There is plenty of parking around the green.  There is plenty of parking around the green. Brackenfield Village Hall is a beautiful building with an epic gothic fireplace and has a real atmosphere and magic for just such an event.

On this very special evening we are tasting some of the finest, and some of the rarest, sparkling wines England has ever produced – certainly this will be the most exceptional and auspicious English wine event ever held in Derbyshire and probably the East Midlands.  This will be a truly rare experience and great way to taste these unique wines in such an affordable way.

Our line-up:

Nyetimber 1086 Prestige Cuvée 2009 
Retailing at £150 a bottle this very special cuvée is only made in exceptional vintages from particular parcels. The 2009 is a rare wine now, residing mainly in collections.

Nyetimber Cuvée Cherié Demi Sec
A super fine Demi Sec retailing at £35 a bottle – an exceptional sweeter sparkling that is excellent almost beyond description.

Hattingley Valley King’s Cuvée Prestige 2013
Another exceptional cuvée that retails at about £90 a bottle – a rarity as this vintage has been either quaffed or curated.

Coates & Seely ‘La Perfide’ Rose 2009
A sparkling rose wine of exceptional character, richness and finesse – I had the rare privilege of tasting what was thought to be one of the last bottles left of this wine back in the summer with Coates and Seely – I remembered I had a half-case of this left at home! Aged on its lees for 5 years before disgorging in 2016, it was described by Jamie Goode as one of the UK’s best sparkling wines. It retails for around £70 a bottle – if you can find it!

Nyetimber Classic Cuvée 2004
I tasted this way back in 2014 and it was a big bold, lemony fizz that packed in apples and citrus acidity.  I reckoned then that this could stand a few more years in the bottle and still be an awesome wine.  The last bottle will be cracked open for this auspicious event.  Again, another rarity I couldn’t ascribe a value to.

Chapel Down Pinot Reserve 2004
An exceptional sparkling wine that has aged beautifully and won our Judgement of Wessington blind tasting event back in 2018. Beating an exceptional lineup of English and Champagne stars to come out on top by a good head and shoulders over the others. I can’t put a retail value on this because it’s so rare there simply isn’t any left for sale anymore!  Indeed this has to be one of the last bottles in existence I reckon.
