Lemon yellow with a degree of maturity after six years in bottle, this pure Kent Chardonnay fizz from Andrew Weeber shows fresh citrus and biscuity notes in aroma with a crisp appley mousse whose hint of digestive biscuit adds to the pleasurable pinprick of tiny bubbles that assail the tongue which is satiated by the tart coating of delicious lemon zesty fruit.

Lots of complexity and on the nose and palate: refined brioche aromas and white fruit intensity in a powerful, focused style. It is thrillingly zesty, structured and weighty so it has the ability to age well. There is a hint of wood ageing on this savoury, textured style. Fine mousse and excellent length too. Drinking range: 2017 - 2020 Decanter Magazine (Dec 2016)


Despite boasting only a short history (the 2006 was their first release) Gusbourne Estate vineyards have notched up quite a reputation, winning awards along the way. The vineyard is at Appledore in Kent, roughly mid-way between Ashford and Rye. Planted with the 'usual' trio of Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier, the grapes are hand-picked. A small portion of the harvest is fermented in oak, but most of it takes place in stainless-steel before the second fermentation in bottle. The wines are aged on their lees for a minimum of 22 months before dégorgement.
