Brut Reserve

Gusbourne Brut Reserve

Brut Reserve is our most robust expression of who we are and what we believe: Creating wines that are an authentic reflection of a time and place. We like to think of it as Keeping it Honest.

A testament to
the land Jon Pollard

Over the years Charlie and I have built a clear understanding of the flavour profiles of grapes from every corner of our vineyards and how these are affected by the variations of the climate in any particular growing season. With Brut Reserve our goal is a wine that is both approachable and balanced. With each vintage we aim to create a classic blend of the three varieties. This gives a ‘backbone’ of Chardonnay acting as the structural component, Pinot Noir brings body and depth and finally Pinot Meunier which adds floral and additional fruity notes to the wine.

Food Pairings Contemporary and Classic

Bright gold in colour, this blend highlights red fruit aromas of cherry and strawberry, which then develop into attractive fresh pastry notes with a touch of cinnamon and spice. With a bright streak of citrus fruit, the palate is clean and fresh whilst giving tones of soft stone fruit and a long, refreshing finish. Enjoyed at L’Enclume, it is the flexible partner for contemporary and classic English food pairings; from seared scallops to smoked eels to fish and chips.
