2012 Blanc de Blancs Brut English Sparkling Wine Gusbourne Estate
|Origin||United Kingdom, England|
|Classification||English Sparkling Wine|
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)
*Case Price: Mix any 12 bottles of wine or 6 bottles of Champagne, Spirits or Fortified to get the 'case price' for each bottle.
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.
