Description

In 2004, when founder Andrew Weeber planted the first vines on Gusbourne Estate’s coastal escarpment in Kent, in the far South Eastern corner of England, he had a clear vision and a single goal: to create English Sparkling Wines that would stand up alongside the very finest offerings from across the globe.  

Focusing on just the classic grape varieties of Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier, Gusbourne grow all grapes used in their winemaking in their own vineyards which are blessed with a very special terroir: Wealden clay-loam soils combined with an exceptionally warm and dry maritime climate enables Gusbourne to be the first to harvest in England, whilst their proximity to the sea provides a distinctive salty tang to the wines. 

Vines are tended with great care and attention to the environment, using only organic fertilisers, and over half of the vines planted are Burgundian (rather than Champagne) clones. This means that they produce lower yields (brought lower still by green harvests every year), but the resultant fruit is riper and has significantly more flavour.

Special barrels of Pinot Noir, displaying increased depth of flavour and dark, brambly fruits, were set aside to create this wine. This was 100% destemmed, then fermented on its skins for 14 days in stainless steel tank before being aged for 10 months in French oak barriques. It is silky, rich and intense and elegantly balanced.
