Time spent on lees after secondary fermentation pays huge dividends for English sparkling wine, endowed as it always is with high natural levels of acidity. That's a lesson triumphantly proved by this 2011 Blanc de Blancs, with its soft mousse, lifted, almost floral aromas and deft weave of apple, tangerine and pear fruits rippled through with yeasty, bready richness.  Its concentration, poise and length are impressive and position the wine well against the stiffest competition.  It's vibrant and giving now, but will hold well if stored correctly and given still more time over the next decade.  Drink 2019-2028
