ABOUT THE 2013 VINTAGE

A cool spring resulted in a later than usual start to the season. Once bud burst was under way growth was consistent and strong. Good temperatures in early July meant that flowering was successful and relatively quick. Harvest commenced slightly later than usual, due to the late spring, but produced excellent fruit of a very high quality.

TASTING NOTE

This elegant Brut Reserve has developed a nuanced nose of lemon and lime, apple blossom and elderflower. There’s also a touch of mallow sweetness and Chantilly cream too. The palate is broader with lush, peach stone fruit, baked apple compote, ripe cherry and nougat. The overall impression is bright and vibrant with a round, complete finish.
