The sparklers at Gusbourne are amazing. 2013 Blanc de Blancs is my favourite and it is tantalisingly sexy with world class fruit and elegance.
Gusbourne is produced on a small estate in Appledore and, unusually for a wine business, is listed on the stock exchange AIM. This is a very impressive blanc de blancs, with notes of brioche and white fruit and a clean, long finish.
Since releasing its debut vintages in 2010, Gusbourne has come a long way very fast. It is listed on the Alternative Investment Market, with Lord Ashcroft the majority shareholder. This is its flagship wine, made from 100% chardonnay. A delicate nose gives way to white fruit with plenty of zesty character.
