Winemaker Notes

Bright golden in color, 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.

This wine is a great accompaniment to seafood in general, but is perfect with freshly shucked oysters.

WE 95
Wine Enthusiast

Lemony brightness and silvery lightness are suggested on the nose with its lifted, airy citrus notes. The palate brings substance to the slender but concentrated palate, and the lemony overtones are now enriched with buttery, lemony brioche while the fine mousse underlines the harmonious balance between ripe lemon freshness, slender poise, statuesque backbone and subtle autolysis. This is pure and elegant.

Decanter

Lemon, lime and white grapefruit notes, with biscuit and bread aromas in the background and on the finish. Lovely.

RP 93
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Disgorged in March 2019 under natural cork, Gusbourne's 2014 Brut Blanc de Blancs is showing very well indeed, unwinding to reveal aromas of crisp green orchard fruit, spring blossom, fresh bread, macadamia nuts and white currants. Medium to full-bodied, vinous and elegantly fleshy, it's seamless and complete, with fine depth at the core, racy acids and an elegant pinpoint mousse. Long and precise, this stands out as one of the finest offerings in its category.

Gusbourne Views from Gusbourne Winery Image

Gusbourne takes its name from John de Goosebourne, owner of the estate back in 1410 when it bordered the sea in the South East of England. In 2004 our founder Dr Andrew Weeber planted the first vines with a clear vision and a single goal: to create English Sparkling Wines that would stand up alongside the very finest offerings from across the globe.

Focusing on just the classic grape varieties of Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier, all the grapes used in our winemaking are sourced solely from Gusbourne vineyards, and we only make Vintage wines. Though England is very much cool climate territory, in relative terms our vineyards benefit from an exceptionally warm and dry maritime climate, which enables us to achieve full ripeness every year – whilst still being classically fresh, our wines tend to display an extra level of roundness and approachability. Our vines are tended with great care and attention to the environment, using only organic fertilisers, whilst time and complexity are the name of the game in the winery, where 250-300 wines are made each vintage (some under wood), with our key Cuvées ending up being assemblages of up to 120 wines each.

Gusbourne is the only three-time winner of the International Wine & Spirits Challenge English Wine Producer of the Year, and we are the proud recipients of over 200 awards at international competitions - in 2019 alone we were awarded 23 gold medals and 8 trophies. Our wines are not in widespread distribution, but can be found in leading restaurants, top hotels and luxury department stores. They are also served in the Royal Households.

The limestone soils of England’s southern end have proven ideal for the production of British sparkling wine. While it might seem too damp and cold for grape growing in England, 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.
