Gusbourne Blanc de Blancs 2012 is toast of Decanter
We have been delighted to see that our current release Blanc de Blancs has been named as the highest rated sparkling wine, Champagne included, in Decanter magazine's "Most Exciting Wines of 2016."
Published in the January 2017 edition, which was released a couple of days ago, it stated,
"Lots of complexity on the nose and palate: refined brioche aromas and white fruit intensity in a powerful focused style. It is thrillingly zesty, structured and weighty so it has the ability to age well. There is a hint of wood ageing on this savoury, textured style. Fine mousse and excellent length too."
In a year which has seen Gusbourne receive England's first ever double Gold at the Sommelier World Wine Awards, and first ever double Platinum at the Decanter World Wine Awards, this is a testimony to not only our remarkable vineyard sites and meticulous winemaking approach, but to every one of our dedicated team who plays their part in making each bottle of Gusbourne special.
