Sugrue Cuvée Boz Blanc de Blancs 2015 is Dermot Sugrue’s first Blanc de Blancs release made in tribute to his late brother Boz. Made entirely from glorious 2015 Chardonnay fruit from Hampshire based Jenkyn Place winery and vinified entirely in stainless barrels, without any oak and extended lees-ageing in bottle. Remarkably fresh with floral notes of white flowers and citrus fruits on the nose. The palate is precise and elegant, displaying toasty notes balanced with a flint-like minerality and a long, persistent finish. Sugrue Cuvée Boz Blanc de Blancs 2015 is an utterly superb English Sparkling wine produced in Very Limited quantities.
“Barry Ben Sugrue – was my brother and this wine is dedicated to him. Boz was spectacularly gifted, an ardent and accomplished man, bright as the crisp-white paper his razor-sharp pencil raised perfection upon. This Blanc de Blancs is my tribute, but truth is there is no fitting tribute to someone like Boz… Cuvée Boz is my attempt however.” – Dermot Sugrue
“A complex and harmonious English sparkling wine, showing aromas of green apple and subtle hints of lemon thyme. Beautifully balanced and poised on the palate, which offers good weight and notes of citrus peel, orange zest and delicate hints of strawberry through to an elegant finish.” – 94 Pts, Neal Martin
“Lovely fresh notes of flowers, zester lemon and warm bread. The palate is elegant and delicate before a powerful finish of spices apple. A wonderful balance of power and restraint” – Gold Award, WineGB
