This tasting will include:
- A “vertical” of several vintages of Gusbourne’s prestige Blanc De Blancs, going back to 2006, their first vintage.
- Gusbourne Estate Brut Reserve from 2 older vintages. From each vintage we will compare one example which has been given extended ageing on its lees with another which was disgorged younger, but then aged longer in bottle. How important are lees- and bottle-ageing in English sparkling wines?
- 2 vintages of Taittinger Comte de Champagne – THE Champagne above all others which Gusbourne aim to match in quality!
