Gusbourne are one of the top English sparkling producers and this Blanc de Blancs is a fantastic cuvée.
Made from 100% Chardonnay (predominantly Bugundian clones) which is aged on it lees for a minimum of 42 months. It has a mousse which is supremely delicate with classic aromas of green apple, citrus, mineral notes with hints of buttered toast and tarte tatin. The understated, but subtly creamy body leads onto a long and clean citrus and mineral influenced finish.
A great accompaniment to seafood in general and wonderful with shucked oysters in particular.
Andrew Weeber, a South African born Orthapedic Surgeon turned farmer, took over the Gusbourne Estate just outside Appledore in Kent in 2004 with the intent of establishing a vineyard from which to produce English Sparkling Wine. The first vines were planted soon after and the first wines followed in 2010. Their vineyards, south facing on the low slopes of the Kentish escarpment, are planted with Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier. Currently these extend to twenty hectares with further plantings planned over the next few years.
From the outset Andrew had a vision of establishing Gusbourne as one of the best English producers and to that end has put in subtantial investment and assembled a talented team led by Charlie Holland who joined as head winemaker in 2013 and has gone on to be CEO while still being in charge of wine making.
Gusbourne's reputation is such that their wines are found on the lists of many of the country's most prestigious restaurants which speaks volumes about their achievements in the last few years.
