Gusbourne Brut Reserve 2015

Kent-based Gusbourne’s Brut Reserve 2015 has spent 34 months ageing on its lees, and has flavours of “zesty mandarin, peach and apple pie with hints of ginger, toasted nuts and brioche”. The fizz is a blend of 53% Pinot Noir, 40% Chardonnay and 7% Pinot Meunier, with a dosage of 8g/l, and was fermented in stainless steel tanks with a small percentage of old oak barrels to add structural complexity. Comparing the wine with previous vintages, head winemaker, Charlie Holland, says: “There is a little less warmth in the 2015 compared with 2014; the style is more similar to that of 2010 and 2013 – it has real potential for longer-term ageing”.

RRP: £39.
