Gusbourne Estate, Brut Reserve, Appledore, Kent, England, 2015


We love this wine. England’s answer to Champagne – and it isn’t far off. Made from the three classic Champagne varieties, Chardonnay, Pinot Noir & Pinot Meunier, it shows all the class and sense of terroir that their French cousins are accustomed to. We won’t bore you too much about the ins and outs of soil composition of Southern England and Northern France, but they are distinctly similar and that shows. This is a seriously posh bottle of bubbles that we should be proud to call one of our own.
