Description & Technical Information
-
Nyetimber 1086 is hand-selected from the finest estate-grown wines and matured on their lees for at least five years in the traditional method. In 1086, almost 1000 years ago, the peaceful valley of Nitimbreha made its first appearance in recorded history. The estate is mentioned in the Domesday Book, the great survey of England and Wales ordered by William the Conqueror. It was coined as Nitimbreha likely referring to a newly timbered house or perhaps a small timber plantation. A deference to the rich extensive English history, the 1086 wines are therefore a homage to the estate which has been part of history for almost a millennium. Only 2,600 bottles and 40 magnums produced and each wine spends two years in the bottle post disgorgment.

Weather: 2009 vintage conditions; the average temperatures were as expected judging from the weather in the last decade. The wines progressed as expected. Flowering started around the middle of June under good conditions, vérasions during the last week of August and harvest early in October. Weather in August and September was great with sunshine and warmth, the grapes at the time of harvest were at optimum ripeness.

“46% Chardonnay, 43% Pinot Noir, 11% Pinot Meunier. Six years' ageing on lees. Dosage 9 g/l. Disgorged July 2016. Mytik Diam technological cork.
Tasted blind. Tiny bead. Some caramel on the nose. Rather loosely textured with some green-apple character. The wine with the highest apparent acid level – which may well be a clue as to its origins. Sweet and sour, this improved in the glass.
Drink 2017-2027”
