Sugrue Pierre Cuvée Dr Brendan O’Regan is a multi-vintage, multi-vineyard, prestige cuvée blend comprising of 60% Chardonnay and 40% Pinot Noir, aged in Burgundy oak barrels. Amber gold in the glass with a fine, persistent mousse. The nose shows prominent notes of caramelized apple, toast, stone fruits and brioche. Bracing acidity and richly textured, revealing an abundance of baked apples, stone fruits and an array of toasty, nutty notes. The finish is long. Beautiful to enjoy now, it will grow in elegance and complexity if cellared for up to a decade.
“I tasted this wine in a line-up of over 100 bottles, unlabelled, and with no knowledge of what was inside – I can declare that it is the most profound, complex and rewarding English sparkling wine I have ever had the pleasure of encountering. I cannot wait to see it again, to put a name to its heavenly flavour.” – Matthew Jukes (Tasted June 2020)
“Rich and toasty aromas are accompanied by some serious depth, weight and texture on the palate. It has attractive brioche and mineral notes, the ripeness and flesh making this vinous fizz suitable for food. Impressive acidity gives balance and frames the wine well. Youthful and powerful, with a long, saline finish.” – 94pts John Stimpfig, Decanter (Tasted November 2018)
