A compelling tweak in style to the fantastic 2010 Cuvée Brut, this 2013 vintage comprises of 47% Pinot Noir, 33% Chardonnay and 20% Pinot Meunier all aged in barrel. Harvested late in the year to achieve glorious ripeness of fruit. Displaying greater opulence and depth than previous vintages, the 2013 however retains the Wiston signature of focus and precision. Has great potential like all our vintage wines to age beautifully, however this is excellent drinking now.
“Beautiful nose with sweet autolytic character, caramel, ripe stone fruit, pear juice and salted bread notes to finish with a full and harmonious rich texture and good persistence.” Best UK Sparkling White, Decanter World Wine Awards 2017
“Rich and creamy style, with lovely savoury notes from development. Composed and elegant with complex notes of brioche fruit and a long finish, delightful!” IWSC 2017 Tasting Panel
“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.” Anne Krebiehl MW, Wine Enthusiast
