Roebuck Estates, Classic Cuvee Brut, West Sussex, United Kingdom 2014
Best in Show, 97 points
A pale, silvery hue and a stream of fine bubbles, followed by keen, ultra-fresh aromas in which the graceful, creamy notes of fine Chardonnay mingle with deeper fruits from the two Pinots: apple, pear, quince. Everything sketched out on the nose is delivered with great precision and focus on the palate in this refined and searching wine, and its length and persistence on the finish is testament to the kind of slow acquisition of phenolic (or flavour) ripeness which Southern England’s climate now permits. That vivacity and assurance are re-defining the boundaries for northern, high-latitude sparkling wine creation: taste it here.
Gusbourne, Blanc de Noirs, Kent, United Kingdom 2016
Gold, 95 points
Fragrant and multi-layered, with concentrated, elegant strawberry and redcurrant, wrapped in refreshing acidity and fleshed out by toasty autolytic notes, finally revealing almond and peach stone.
Chapel Down, Kit’s Coty Chardonnay, Kent, United Kingdom 2017
Gold, 95 points
Complex and structured, with fresh acidity balanced by huge fruit including bruised apple, apricot and tart peach, with overtones of smoke, butter and vanilla.<
Charles Palmer, Pinot Noir, East Sussex, United Kingdom 2018
Silver, 91 points
Very appealing Pinot nose of aromatic raspberry fruit, followed by crunchy berry and rhubarb on a concentrated, powerful and long palate.
Albourne Estate, Bacchus, West Sussex, United Kingdom 2018
Silver, 90 points
Fine concentration of lemon and lime fruit which show weight, texture and an underlying saline, seashell minerality.
Lyme Bay, Pinot Noir Rosé, Devon, United Kingdom 2018
Silver, 90 points
Bright and vibrant, with red currant, orange zest, lemon and apple blossom scents, backed by an expressive, refreshing palate possessing red apple and raspberry.
