2013 Blanc de Blancs

There is a complexity and generosity that comes from extended lees ageing, which provides layers of weighty richness. This is a serious sparkling wine with unquestioned complexity and stout acidity.

Vintage
Other Notes
After good winter rains the 2013 vintage ended as one of our driest and earliest vintages on record. The favourable weather throughout bud burst and flowering set up the ideal conditions for a very good vintage. A vintage of extremes - our wettest ever dormant interval; second driest floraison and veraison intervals; hottest ever veraison interval.
