Cuvée Dr Brendan O’Regan is a multi-vintage, multi-vineyard, prestige cuvée blend comprising of 60% Chardonnay and 40% Pinot Noir, aged in only the finest Burgundian oak barrels. Amber gold in hue with a fine, persistent mousse. The nose shows prominent notes of caramelized apple, stone fruits, brioche and honey. Richly textured on the palate with a bracing acidity and a long and lucious finish. This is a pinnacle release from Dermot that sits up there with the very best Prestige Cuvée’s released in the UK. Beautiful to enjoy now, it will grow in elegance and complexity if cellared for up to a decade.
