Julia Harding MW of JancisRobinson.com has just given these newly launched magnums 18 out of 20 points (the highest score to ever be awarded to an English Wine on their website – only 3 have received this score out of 1,482 wines tasted) and described it as “Even better than the 2013 tasted in 75-cl bottle in 2017”.
"Creamy, and initially lightly floral like the blossom of fruit trees, then dominated by a rich autolytic yeasty note and the first signs of honey. On the palate, this is impressively deep and rich. Mouth-filling and yet balanced by great freshness. A powerhouse of finesse, if that is not a contradiction in terms. Almost savoury on the finish thanks to that long lees ageing, ripe yellow fruit flavour balanced by citrusy acidity. Creamy riches, carried by the fine and persistent mousse. Very long. Even better than the 2013 tasted in 75-cl bottle in 2017." 18/20 Points Julia Harding MW, Purple Pages of JancisRobinson.com November 2020
“Ripe red apples and warm brioche showing on the nose, with stone fruit richness to the palate that is balanced by energy and acidity. There is a tremendous umami savouriness and an almost chocolatey yeast character; this needs time and will be very good.” 94 Points Decanter Magazine's Most Exciting Wines of the Year 2017 Panel Tasting, October 2017
“The 2013 Cuvée Brut is a blend of 47% Pinot Noir, 33% Chardonnay and 20% Pinot Meunier that is 100% fermented in oak barrels. It has a clean and precise bouquet with scents of walnut, smoke and a touch of sea spray, the latter becoming more accentuated with time in the glass. The palate is fresh on the entry with a tang of ginger. This has impressive weight and sense of intent. It fans out nicely on the finish with a slight nettle-like note on the aftertaste. This is excellent!” 92 Points Neal Martin, The Wine Advocate June 2017
“From the chalky soils of the South Downs, this is a lovely wine with ripe citrus and pear fruit with some appley notes. The brisk acidity is countered by a hint of sweetness on the finish. Lemony and linear, this is really serious.” Jamie Goode, Sunday Express June 2017
“Made by talented Dermot Sugrue, whose wines get better and better, using grapes grown on the South Downs, this white sparkling wine is a pinot noir-based blend (47%) with chardonnay (33%) and pinot meunier (20%). Like all Sugrue’s wines it has taut definition and a lively tang but there are also some lovely, warmer, honeyed notes, too.” Victoria Moore, The Telegraph February 2018
'This is huge news - a future ICON for English fizz. Rich, poised, electrifying.” - Olly Smith
