Sugre Pierre

The Trouble with Dreams Chardonnay Blend 2014

By some measure the most impressive and unique English sparkling wine I’ve tried to date, Dermot Sugrue’s 2014 ‘Trouble With Dreams’ is a fabulous standard-bearer for the potential of English wine, and for the terroir of the South Downs in particular.

Deep golden in colour, the wine has medium effervescence and opens with gorgeous aromas of almonds, pastry, burnt butter, pear and red apples. The palate is profoundly complex, with a gorgeous display of acidity on entry that transforms to a broad, nutty mid-palate and a creamy, very lengthy finish.

Production is tiny - Dermot Sugrue’s main focus is at Wiston, where the vineyards are far bigger - and hence TWD retails for around £45, which can be considered at the pricier end of the spectrum for English sparkling. Nonetheless this represents superb value in my opinion and is a wine that should continue to age well.

Brut Classic Cuvée Sparkling Blend

Wasn’t expecting to like English sparkling nearly as much as I’m enjoying this bottle. A truly bizarre combination of ripe fruit and racy acidity (higher than the average for champagne) that can only come from somewhere this far north > 50 degrees latitude (long growing season + long days during growing season). Lemon curd, green apple danish, even notes of pear and passion fruit. Bond may have to trade out his Bollinger for this. — a month ago

South Downs Blanc de Blancs Chardonnay 2015

Bright yellow, very fine mousse that fills the mouth beautifully. A little sharper than I remembered last time, from a dominant citrus profile led by lemon throughout with a twist of grapefruit. Fairly persistent with acidity leading. I suspect I’ll enjoy more with a bit more age. — a month ago
