Gusbourne Blanc des Blancs 2014, English Sparkling wine from Kent, 100% Chardonnay, smooth, creamy and fresh fizz, very easily a Champagne alternative. Gusbourne Blanc des Blancs has a bright golden colour with a delicate mousse, and offers the classic Chardonnay aromas of green apple, citrus and mineral notes combined with buttered toast and tarte tatin. It is a well-balanced sparkling wine with a streak of zesty acidity complementing a gentle mousse that gives way to a creamy, hazelnut and baked apple.
