Paragon and Inversion Garner Stellar Reviews

In the world of English fine wine, a few names resonate with both aficionados and casual drinkers and after the release of Paragon and Inversion earlier this year, we might dare to dream that Black Chalk would be up amongst them!

It seems our two new award-winning wines have not only captured the hearts of wine enthusiasts but have also received glowing reviews and scores from critics. Here’s a look at the recent acclaim these wines have garnered since their release.


Paragon, a sparkling Blanc de Blancs style that epitomises the balance of tradition and modernity, has quickly become a favourite among connoisseurs.

“Paragon is all about the subtle use of oak, chosen to provide a balance to the elegance and fruit profile of the Chardonnay.” Jacob Leadley, Owner + winemaker

"It's stunning, Quite simply stunning" 17.5/20 Tamlyn Currin

"A mineral, smoky nose of petrol, golden apple peel and toast. Richly textured on the palate." 92/100 Points. Sylwia Wu,

WineGB Awards 2024 - GOLD MEDAL

"Complex nose of oak spice with good development adding further interest. Elegant, low pressure mousse lingers long on the palate with great depth of savoury notes and spiced apple. Highly recommended wine."


Inversion, a Blanc de Noirs style, has also received rave reviews for its impeccable structure and rich flavour profile.

"Inversion is all about highlighting the power of the Pinot Noir 777 clone, it’s got a real grown up edge to it.” 

Zoë Driver, Winemaker
