Pelegrim is produced using all three Champagne varieties; Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier and undergoes traditional method fermentation. This wine has recently been awarded with a Gold Medal at the London Sommelier awards.

There is a little toasty note on the nose and a faint whiff of brioche, but this is more about the creamy peach, citrus fruits and red apple. The palate is almost off-dry, but not quite, however the creamy mouth feel lends the impression of richness and approachability. The maturation period of 22 months lends a toasty character that wraps around a generous core of stone fruit and mineral notes. Pelegrim is very easy to fall in love with; it’s well made, interesting, and English. What more could you want?
