The Wine School of Cheshire Gusbourne Blanc de Blancs Vertical Tasting
Saturday, June 25 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm£75
We are proud members of Wines of Great Britain and both English Wine Week and Welsh Wine Week are two of the highlights of our annual wine school calendar!
We have a close and very special relationship with The Gusbourne Estate, England’s finest winemaker, and their Blanc de Blanc vintage sparkling is their flagship wine. For this very unique event, a vertical tasting allows us to taste five consecutive vintages in one afternoon. We’ll start with the latest available release, 2017, and continue to 2016, 2015, 2014 and finish with 2013, the oldest vintage we have – the 2013 and 2014 are the last bottles we have been able to acquire so this event will never be repeated!
“Our Blanc de Blancs is the truest expression of our terroir. We select the finest lots of Chardonnay, exhibiting natural minerality, ensuring that the wine has both the finesse and elegance that one would expect in this style, but also the requisite qualities for extended ageing.
Regarded as being at the very pinnacle of English Sparkling Wines, our wines are only released when deemed ready by myself and our Master Sommelier, Laura Rhys. Our intent is to create Pure Elegance.” – Charlie Holland, winemaker & CEO, The Gusbourne Estate
Gusbourne Blanc de Blancs was served at the 2012 London Olympics Opening Party and is served at Buckingham Palace for visiting Heads of State.
Join us in The Tasting Room in Godstall Lane: our very own home of all things wine in the heart of Chester city centre, just moments from Chester Cathedral and The Rows. We’ll serve a selection of small plates for 2 guests to share to see how wine and food pairing works with some of the wines.
We are proud to work in partnership with Riedel, the world’s finest wine glass manufacturer and you will enjoy some of your wines at this event with Riedel Performance Champagne and Sparkling wine crystal glasses and some in Gusbourne’s very own tasting glasses.
