Classic Cuvée Brut English Sparkling Wine 2017
These limited-edition, individually numbered bottles of the mind-blowing Classic Cuvée Brut 2017 are the inaugural release from a brand-new English sparkling wine producer in East Sussex. And if this is Busi Jacobsohn’s first-ever wine, then this is a single estate destined to be superstar.
Transcending the burgeoning English sparkling wine category, Busi Jacobsohn is European to its very core. It was created by an Italian and Swedish couple – Susanna Busi and Douglas Jacobsohn – at Blackdon Farm, on the beautiful High Weald just south of Tunbridge Wells, using the traditional method made world-famous by Champagne and vines from Burgundy clones.
What pours from the strikingly designed bottle is a golden Chardonnay-dominated fizz with an energetic mousse, crisp clarity and the kind of aromatics that will stop you in your tracks. Raise a flute and you’ll be met by a rich eruption of tangy apple, apricot pastry, blossom, lychee, brioche, strawberry sorbet and whipped cream. As well as being perfect for celebrations and aperitifs, it also makes an exquisite match to smoked salmon, pâté, buttered asparagus and truffles. And it’s refreshing to see a progressive producer clearly marking that this wine is suitable for vegans on its back label.
Founded in 2015, Busi Jacobsohn is very much a family-run wine estate. Douglas Jacobsohn stepped down as chief executive of an insurance company working in London, to follow a dream that he and his wife Susanna had of making their own wine. After extensive training at Plumpton College, Douglas spends his days among the vines, while Susanna takes care of the organisational side. Their sons Charles and Tom help with design, marketing and the vineyards; and their friends and family all pitch in at harvest time, following the classic Italian tradition of Vendemmia. We're proud to be one of the first stockists of Busi Jacobsohn and cannot wait to see what comes next from this exciting new prospect.£5.07 per 100.00ml
