Winemaker Notes

Ridgeview Wine Estate's Blanc de Noir is only made in the best vintages with a combination of their finest Pinot grapes. A deep golden color with a persistent fine stream of bubbles. Rich, earthy red fruit aromas are followed by a complex toasted palate. The finish is long-lasting and beautifully balanced.

Blend: 55% Pinot Noir, 45% Pinot Meunier

Wine & Spirits

Mike and Chris Roberts planted Ridgeview in 1995, having searched out the chalk and clay soils in the foothills of the South Downs. The pinot meunier and pinot noir they grow there attained impressive flavor depth in the 2013 vintage, the wine’s creamy fruit taking on the blush of a red pear. It’s brisk and zesty, with lasting ginger spice and touches of leesy autolysis.

RP 92
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The 2013 Blanc de Noirs is a blend of 55% Pinot Noir and 45% Pinot Meunier. It has a fresh, slightly honeyed bouquet augmented by Mirabelle and jasmine aromas. The palate is fresh on the entry with real "zing" to it. Great tension in situ, a sparkling wine that is so tensile that I would mistake it for a Blanc de Blancs if served blind. There is impressive energy and focus here, the best current release from Ridgeview and certainly worth seeking out.

Wine Enthusiast
An initial crisp, green apple note is swiftly overtaken by hints of oatmeal and biscuit. The palate shows that same duality: crisp freshness against generous structured richness. There is depth and elegance here, but always with that fine herbal tinge, reminding you that this is England. Beautifully balanced and poised.

Ridgeview Wine Estate, British
Ridgeview Wine Estate Winery Video

The preeminent producer of English sparkling wine, Ridgeview Wine Estate was established in 1995 by Mike and Christine Roberts. The estate is located 40 miles south of London, at the base of the chalky South Downs, in the county of East Sussex.

From concept to inception, Ridgeview were determined to produce only sparkling wines, using traditional methods and varietals, with quality being the top priority.

For the past 24 years, Ridgeview has been the dominant influencer in the rise of English sparkling wine production. Ridgeview's belief from onset that England was capable of producing world-class sparkling wines has been unwavering in their strive to achieve just that.

Throughout their impressive history, Ridgeview has won multiple awards and trophies in both national and international competition. Ridgeview is the only non-Champagne ever to win the Decanter award for "Best Sparkling wine in the World", and the only English winery in history to win the Prestigious IWSC "International Winemaker of the Year" in 2018.

Today, the winery is run by second generation Tamara and Simon Roberts, Tamara as CEO, and Simon as winemaker. Following in their parent's footsteps, and honouring the original vision, Ridgeview represents the best of England.

The limestone soils of England’s southern end have proven ideal for the production of sparkling wine. While it might seem too damp and cold for grape growing, recent warm summers and the onset of global warming signify great future growth for the British wine industry.

Representing the topmost expression of a Champagne house, a vintage Champagne is one made from the produce of a single, superior harvest year. Vintage Champagnes account for a mere 5% of total Champagne production and are produced about three times in a decade. Champagne is typically made as a blend of multiple years in order to preserve the house style; these will have non-vintage, or simply, NV on the label. The term, "vintage," as it applies to all wine, simply means a single harvest year.
