Gusbourne Blanc de Blancs 2014

£59.00

12.00% ABV
Elegant palate of toasted hazelnuts, stone fruits and candied citrus with a long rounded finish

Bright golden in colour, with aromas of preserved lemon, ripe pear and brioche. The palate is rich and elegant, with candied citrus, stone fruits and toasted hazelnuts. A complex wine with attractive mineral notes and a long, rounded finish. Gusbourne has 60 hectares at Gusbourne Estate in Kent and 30 hectares in West Sussex that are planted with the 3 classic varieties of Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier. The distinct terroir and exceptionally mild microclimates of the surroundings add their own depth and complexity to the wines, and Gusbourne aims to allow the combination of site, soil and hard work in the vines to reflect in every bottle.

www.jancisrobinson.com tasting note: “Name check for winemaker Charlie Holland on the back label. Smart, slightly squat, bottle shape with a long narrow neck à la Bollinger. Pale straw. Attractive light autolysis on the nose. Good balance and light walnut flavour. No excess acidity. The perfect aperitif. Very lively and zesty. Most impressive. Though obviously youthful. Reasonably creamy texture. More emphatic and less delicate than the Nyetimber 2013 Blanc de Blancs. 17/20” (Jancis Robinson)
