2007 Laithwaites Theale Vineyards Blanc de Blancs Founder's Reserve

( £23, 12%, Laithwaites )

Laithwaites only makes 999 bottles of this wine (spot the marketing spin), but it’s a pretty impressive English take on a Blanc de Blancs Champagne, with small bubbles, creamy autolysis and a bready, refreshing finish. The acidity is just a little raw perhaps.
