Description & Technical Information
-
Every Grand Vintage is unique and original, the Cellar Master's interpretation of the singular year that is produced. The Möet & Chandon Grand Vintage spirit is founded on three essential values: Freedom of interpretation, selection of the year's most remarkable wines and individuality of the vintage. The 75th vintage since the House was founded in 1743, 2013 completes a succession of vintages ending in '3' almost uninterrupted since 1923 (the exception being 1963).

Weather: 2013 was characterised by a particularly late growing cycle. The never-ending winter was followed by a very cool, late spring. we had to wait until the start of July for flowering to begin – something we hadn’t seen in Champagne for quite some time! Fortunately, summer was glorious with plenty of sunshine, record temperatures and very low rainfall, ideal for the ripening of the Pinot Noirs and Chardonnays. the temperatures were cool for the October harvest and the resulting wines are elegant and fresh – the signs of a “classic” vintage.

Tasting Note: Light golden yellow with fine persistent bubbles. The Champagne's maturity is immediately apparent, with autumnal notes of roasted chestnuts, toasted buckwheat, rich nuts, honey and nougat. White fruit is then revealed, reminiscent of a mealy apple or a beautifully ripe pear. Aromas of iodine, dried flowers and pine sap complete the bouquet. The palate is direct and energetic, supported, enveloped by a refined, grainy texture. The wine finishes with a pleasant hint of white grapefruit bitterness.

Expert Reviews

William Kelley
“Disgorged with five grams per liter dosage, Moët's 2013 Extra Brut Grand Vintage is a real success, wafting from the glass with aromas of pear, fresh bread, Meyer lemon, nougat and white flowers. Medium to full-bodied, chiseled and fine-boned, with an enveloping core of bright, vibrant fruit and a pretty pinpoint mousse, it concludes with a precise, penetrating finish. Incisive but not austere, it's an impressive effort, reflecting good levels of maturity in this cool, late harvest. It's as fine a rendition of this cuvée as I can remember tasting.”

“41% Chardonnay, 38% Pinot Noir, 21% Pinot Meunier. Dosage just 5 g/l. The back label also tells us 'the date mentioned hereafter is the disgorgement date' but there is no date on my back label – perhaps it's an early sample.
Pale lemon yellow. Attractive evolution on the nose without its being at all heavy aromatically. Pretty aggressive mousse but nicely judged blend that is quite elegant and certainly not aggressively sweet. Though this of course belongs in a completely different bracket from the army of fine and more idiosyncratic single-estate champagnes.”

Antonio Galloni
“The 2013 Blanc Grand Vintage is bright, focused and wonderfully vibrant. Lemon peel, crushed rocks, mint and white pepper lend notable brightness to this chiseled, finely cut Champagne. The 2013 is just a bit compact today. Perhaps it will gain body with time in bottle.”
