Description & Technical Information
-
Cuvée Traditional 2013 has been ageing in Wiston's cellars for three years, fermented in five to six year-old Puligny-Montrachet barrels, giving it the ability to gain character over time. A blend of all three classic Champagne grape varieties combined with a very low dosage at disgorgements: this has a wonderful clarity of fruit flavour.

Weather: Overall 2013 produced an average sized yield, it was due to be very high but as the year went on this was looking less likely. Following a long cold winter, the bud burst was delayed due to some frosts however the summer months were bright and sunny giving ideal conditions for the grapes to grow and mature. Overall the harvest took slightly longer than normal around 10 days.

Technical Information:
Grape Varieties: 47% Pinot Noir, 33% Chardonnay, 20% Pinot Meunier
Ageing: 3 years on the lees
Dosage: 6 g/l
Drink: Now to 2022

Tasting Note: On the nose, brioche aromas combine with toasted hazelnuts and that distinctive toasty note from barrel fermentation. The palate has loads of dried citrus fruits and beautiful lemon concentration with hints of tropical fruits. Given time in the glass, lovely toasty richness suggesting French patisserie custard and pastry flavours start to come through. Even when young this is very easy to drink, but expect this to age elegantly and continue to develop an even fuller palate for many years to come.

“A toasty touch of brioche joins ripe red and yellow-apple notes on the nose. The palate has even more of that autolytic richness, grounding both tart red apple and ripe lemon notes. Fine and creamy, the mousse highlights the fruit freshness while an earthier, toastier, richer background shimmers through enticingly. This harmonious and complex sparkler majors on beautiful development and pristine freshness. Lovely now, it is certain to develop further.”
