Description & Technical Information
-
Cuvée Traditional 2013 has been ageing in Wiston's cellars for five
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% Meunier
Lees Ageing: 5 years
Dosage: 8 g/l
Disgorged: September 2019
Drink: Now to 2030

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.

Expert Reviews
18/20
Jancis Robinson MW
“Creamy, and initially lightly floral like the blossom of fruit trees, then dominated by a rich autolytic yeasty note and the first signs of honey. On the palate, this is impressively deep and rich. Mouth-filling and yet balanced by great freshness. A powerhouse of finesse, if that is not a contradiction in terms. Almost savoury on the finish thanks to that long lees ageing, ripe yellow fruit flavour balanced by citrusy acidity. Creamy riches, carried by the fine and persistent mousse. Very long. Even better than the 2013 tasted in 75-cl bottle in 2017.”

“The 2013 Cuvée Brut is a blend of 47% Pinot Noir, 33% Chardonnay and 20% Pinot Meunier that is 100% fermented in oak barrels. It has a clean and precise bouquet with scents of walnut, smoke and a touch of sea spray, the latter becoming more accentuated with time in the glass. The palate is fresh on the entry with a tang of ginger. This has impressive weight and sense of intent. It fans out nicely on the finish with a slight nettle-like note on the aftertaste. This is excellent!”
