Winemaker Notes

Pale gold with a delicate mousse, this Blanc de Blancs blends classic Chardonnay characters of green apple, citrus and white fruit on the nose, with mineral notes and buttered toast complexity from extended lees ageing. The palate provides vibrant and ripe acidity with soft, creamy development.

Wine Enthusiast
A restrained but pure note of lemon constitutes the nose, suggesting both tangy zest and juicy flesh. The subtle mousse of tiny bubbles and a sonorous backdrop of autolysis counters all of this freshness and allows it to blanket the senses with its shimmering, lemony but also creamy briskness. That luminous lemon core leaves a lasting impression on the palate. Purity, slenderness and elegance are its hallmarks. Lovely now this wine will age with grace. Drink 2017–2025.
RP 91
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The 2013 Blanc de Blancs has a crisp, quite austere but quintessentially Blanc de Blancs style bouquet that is full of energy. The palate if fresh, quick out of the blocks with Granny Smith apples and fresh lime. This feels brisk and lively, an English sparkler with commendable weight and very good persistence. You can feeling this Blanc de Blancs tingling long after its slate-like finish. This is the best of three examples I tasted from Gusbourne and it comes highly recommended.

At Gusbourne, the goal is simple: to create the finest wines in the world. A deep respect for nature, and uncompromising quest for quality and a fastidious approach to detail is at the heart of everything at Gusbourne. The vineyards, planted in 2004 are predominantly Burgundian clones. All grapes used are sourced solely estate vineyards. A combination of the best age-old traditions with modern technology and cutting-edge equipment allows Gusbourne to sit comfortably between old and new world winemaking, while at the same time bringing exacting quality standards to the process. Respect for the vineyards, the fruit and the natural elements involved in winemaking results in an approach that favors minimal intervention. In 2010 the debut vintages of Gusbourne Brut 2006 & Blanc de Blanc 2006 were released to critical acclaim.

The limestone soils of England’s southern end have proven ideal for the production of sparkling wine. While it might seem too damp and cold for grape growing, recent warm summers and the onset of global warming signify great future growth for the British wine industry.

Representing the topmost expression of a Champagne house, a vintage Champagne is one made from the produce of a single, superior harvest year. Vintage Champagnes account for a mere 5% of total Champagne production and are produced about three times in a decade. Champagne is typically made as a blend of multiple years in order to preserve the house style; these will have non-vintage, or simply, NV on the label. The term, "vintage," as it applies to all wine, simply means a single harvest year.
