    About Sugrue Pierre

    Dermot Sugrue has been the mastermind behind some of the best English wines over the last two decades. The man “who put English sparkling wine on the map” according to an article in The Independent, the late Steven Spurrier even hailed the vigneron as the “best winemaker in England”.

    Previously at the helm of world-renowned Nyetimber, he left in 2006 to help start the now illustrious Wiston Estate – a serious CV in English winemaking. Having made headlines with his Wiston Estate Vintage Blanc de Blancs 2015 receiving the highest-ever score for an English Sparkling wine courtesy of the “sceptical” Neal Martin (Vinous), he has now managed to elevate his own boutique label, Sugrue Pierre, to the same lofty heights.

    Sugrue Cuvee BOZ Blanc de Blancs 2015 (6x75cl)
    Inc. VAT: £332.58
    2015

    Sugrue Cuvee BOZ Blanc de Blancs 2015 (6x75cl)

    Jancis Robinson (18)

    100% Chardonnay, 100% Hampshire vines. A single vineyard planted in 2004 at Jenkyn Place, on greensand and fractured chalk soils. Vinified in stainless steel, no oak. Dosage 9 g/l. Boz was Dermot's brother. This took me into a wordless lacuna from the moment I put the glass to my nose. A hinterland. An unoccupied interior. There is an expression, chiaroscuro, from the Italian meaning 'light-dark'. It's when an artist allows the shape and substance of the form to be defined only by the way light falls against it. Silent contrast. Black and white. Shadows and light. You, the recipient, become the watcher, waiting for things to emerge from the shadows, for the shapes to make sense. Chiaroscuro demands meditative patience, unpartisan curiosity, a certain strength, the ability to see beyond the immediate and look through to find beauty. I will tell you that this astoundingly beautiful wine is chiselled to within an inch of its bones and yet it is charged with the purest canon of English fruit. I will tell you that it is so spicy that I just assumed the base wine was oak fermented and aged, until I read the notes. I will tell you that it is long and mineral and like a flashing blade of Valyrian steel although it cuts through ripe pear and elderflower honey and cold full-cream milk sitting in a pail on a flagstone floor. But that would not describe this wine. I'll go back to chiaroscuro. Rocks in the moonlight.

    Sugrue Pierre Cuvee Dr Brendan O’Regan MV (6x75cl)

    Decanter (94)

    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.

    Sugrue Pierre Trouble With Dreams 2015 (6x75cl)

    Vinous (91)

    The 2015 The Trouble With Dreams was tasted twice. The first, disgorged in April 2020, exhibited a little sweet botrytis that Sugrue advised might have originated from a warm night in October. A later disgorgement is more nervy on the nose, displaying a distinct sea spray/oyster shell influence that translates across onto the palate. Taut and more linear, it has a strictness and stoicism that I admire. Brisk and mouthwateringly saline on the aftertaste. Certainly the second disgorgement is superior.

    Sugrue Pierre Trouble With Dreams 2017 (6x75cl)

    Vinous (91)

    The 2017 The Trouble With Dreams is the most closed on the nose compared to the 2014 and 2015. This has a chiseled bouquet that is cut from a similar cloth to the previous vintage, showing touches of orange pith and flint, and later, orchard-like aromas and dewy meadow. The palate is medium-bodied with a clean, precise entry and a fine bead of acidity. Linear and steely but maybe without quite the same weight on the finish.
