Leading English sparkling wine producer Nyetimber is delighted to introduce Cuvee Chérie to its range of award-winning sparkling wines. Cuvee Chérie is Nyetimber’s Demi-Sec wine – released for the first time in 2012 – that has been rejuvenated with new packaging, a new name and a new positioning. This is to offer greater versatility for intriguing and creative food pairings, as well as to challenge preconceptions around sweeter wine styles.
Cuvee Chérie’s name connects with the translation of Chérie as sweetheart, in reference to the refined, contemporary spirit of this wine, and offers a subtle reference to the sweetness. It also alludes to the name of Nyetimber Head Winemaker, Cherie Spriggs. In repositioning this wine, the aim is to connect with consumers who appreciate fine food and wine about the wide range of gastronomic choices that it can pair with. The packaging for Cuvee Chérie has been updated to reflect the shield label design introduced to the Nyetimber range in 2018 to commemorate the brand’s 30th anniversary.
Cuvee Chérie is made from 100% Chardonnay grapes from the Nyetimber vineyards in West Sussex and Hampshire. Light golden hues and a slight silver undertone illuminate this delicately effervescent wine. Aromas of pure lemon, mineral and honey tones and a hint of tangerine fill the nose. The palate has a lively, sweet lemon start set off by a crisp acidity and a very clean, pure structure.
Designed to pair with a wide variety of cuisines, Cuvee Chérie entices with a fine balance of zest and sweetness, perfectly matched with fragrant, lightly spiced savoury dishes and Asian flavours, savoury foods such as foie gras, as well as delicate desserts such as fruit tarts, meringues and possets.
