Brut Reserve 2014
Talk to anyone in the fine wine industry about the best English wine and one name just keeps cropping up – Gusbourne.
The elegantly styled wines produced by winemaker Charlie Holland have seen this Kent-based winery named English Wine Producer of the Year by the International Wine & Spirit Competition no less than three times in five years, making it the only three-time winner of this award ever. As well as collecting an impressive haul of medals, Gusbourne’s wines have also emerged victorious when pitted against Champagnes in blind tastings attended by the world’s most prestigious wine critics. The chic art deco-esque bottle designs have an effortlessly graceful and understatedly English feel to them, and the Brut Reserve is one our favourite English sparkling wines.
A Pinot Noir-dominated blend, the Brut Reserve 2014 has been praised by Jancis Robinson for having “real substance”, with the respected critic finishing her review by saying simply: “Very well done.” Aged on the lees for at least 36 months with a small proportion fermented in old oak barrels, the result is rich and creamy with a clean and moreish finish. You’ll discover Amalfi lemons, crunchy white peach, honey drizzled on brioche, strawberries and cream topped with toasted almonds, apple pie, poached pear and warm baguette. Perfect on its own or to accompany canapés, it can also be enjoyed alongside sushi, tuna tartar, classic fish and chips, unagi, scallops, truffle pasta or a mushroom risotto.
