Included in Grape Britannia’s DWWA 2023 mixed case
Gusbourne, Blanc De Blancs, Kent/Sussex 2018
Best in Show, 97 points
The chance to look at an outstanding English Blanc de Blancs against a peer from Champagne this year was instructive. This wine’s colour is paler still than the Champagne Blanc de Blancs, though the mousse is no less fine-grained. The aromatic fruit and flowers apparent in this wine’s scents seem to have seeped from beds of cool, almost icy moss – Chardonnay restraint is redoubled in these high latitudes. Acidity once again provides the architecture of flavour, but it’s what is engraved in that acidity which intrigues: orchard fruits combined with an almost severe citrus purity, a seaside freshness, and an unmistakable stoniness, too, which lingers and detains after the fruits subside. It’s a wine of remarkable assurance and accomplishment. Alc 12%
Raimes, Classic Brut, Hampshire 2018
Gold, 95 points
Supremely elegant with lush orchard fruits, zingy citrus and pineapple and a warming bread character; well-defined and structured with a crisp acidity and seamless effervescence. Alc 12%
Gusbourne, Guinevere Chardonnay, Kent 2021
Gold, 95 points
