Two lovely wines from Gusbourne, one of England's top wineries

New releases from Gusbourne, one of the top sparkling wine producers in the UK. Really impressive.

Gusbourne Brut Reserve 2015 England
12% alcohol. 53% Pinot Noir, 40% Chardonnay, 7% Pinot Meunier, three years on lees. Concentrated and with lovely, well integrated acidity, this is a serious English sparkling wine showing some toast and peach richness, but the main theme is the wonderfully precise crystalline citrus fruit character. There’s a subtle creaminess here, too. Has a delightful expanding lemony finish. Lovely stuff. 93/100

Gusbourne Rosé 2015 England
12% alcohol. This is lovely, and even better for not being bottled in clear glass (which avoids the very real risk of light strike). It has a pale pink colour with some orange hints, and aromas of wild strawberries, orange peel and lemons. The palate is brisk and fresh with pure strawberry and green apple notes, around a citrussy core. Lovely supple fruit here: a really elegant expression of pink fizz. 92/100

Here’s my review of the 2014
