"Attractive, full-bodied wine with lifted biscuity, smoky, brown-bread, yeast autolysis flavours. Very Champagne-like sparkling with plenty of weight and flavour." Cuisine

fine, tight wine with flinty Chardonnay characters evident on the nose together with a subtle bready yeast autolysis character. Green apple and lemon. Bone dry with an ethereal texture. A very attractive wine and certainly the best example under this label I've tasted.ā€¯ Bob Campbell MW September 2008

In late 2010 , Adele and Daniel Le Brun celebrated 30 years of producing some of New Zealand's finest sparkling wines . No 8 is the luckiest of all numbers for the Chinese and this could just be your'e lucky wine . Although the Cuvee changes with each handcrafted release , the cepage is generally a blend of 65% Pinot Noir , 20% Chardonnay and 15% Pinot Meunier . This is a very typical cuvee for many non vintage champagne's and the addition of Pinot Meunier adds a lovely softness and roundness to the overall flavour and balance of No. 8 . A very consistent Methode Traditionelle that deservedly has won many accolades both here in New Zealand and on the International Show circuit . A delicious sophisticated aperitif .
