From the Winery:
Introduced into the New Zealand market in 1999, No. 1 Cuvee was the first wine to be produced by proprietors Adele and Daniel Le Brun at their family owned winery, established in 1997. Today the No. 1 Family Estate has an established vineyard and winery on Marlborough’s Golden Mile, Rapaura Rd, near Blenheim, crushing more than 30 tonnes annually. The family are committed to producing only premium Methode Tradionelle wines and to follow winemaker, Daniel Le Brun’s long-held vision of Marlborough as the only rival to Champagne.
My Tasting Notes:
I had tasted the No. 1 Family Estate Cuvee along with five other non-vintage and three vintage sparkling wines from New Zealand. The Cuvee was my second choice or runner up sparkling wine. This is a first-class sparkling wine exhibiting great balance filled with citrus and mineral flavours and traditional champagne (bread yeast and citrus) aromas. There is a pleasing elegance to this wine.

A medium bodied traditional method sparkling with a bouquet of cereal and lime. The attack offers notes of toast and green apple, trailing off to a slightly smoky and herbal length, finishing dry. A perfect wine to kick of the evening. No food required. The gorgeous label makes it a great hostess gift. Drink through 2014. Tasted Dec 2013.
