Gusbourne Blanc de Blanc Vintage 2015

Appledore, Kent

12% ABV

A bright golden colour with a delicate mousse, our Blanc De Blancs has classic Chardonnay aromas of green apple, citrus and mineral notes combined with buttered toast and Tarte Tatin richness from extended lees ageing. This wine is a great accompaniment to seafood in general, but is perfect with freshly shucked oysters.

 

A favourite at fine dining establishments such as Belmond Le Manoir aux Quat’Saisons and the Clove Club. The palate is well balanced with a streak of zesty acidity complementing a gentle mousse that gives way to a creamy, hazelnut and baked apple.

 

Served at the 2012 London Olympics opening Party and at the Buckingham Palace for Visiting Heads of State.
