Gusbourne winemaker Charlie Holland is creating wines that are an authentic reflection of a time and place. Brut Reserve is his most robust expression of his maxim. He describes it as a wine that is: "keeping it honest".

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.

It can be found in the finest dining establishments in England paired with the finest English ingredients; from seared scallops to smoked eels to fish and chips.

Charlie has developed a clear understanding of the flavour profiles of grapes from every corner of the vineyards. He has considered how these are affected by the variations of the climate in any particular growing season. With Brut Reserve the goal is a wine that is both approachable and balanced. Each vintage aims to create a classic blend of the three varieties. This gives a ‘backbone’ of Chardonnay (31%) acting as the structural component, Pinot Noir (36%) brings body and depth and finally Pinot Meunier (33%) which adds floral and additional fruity notes to the wine.
