2013 Late Disgorged BdB

2013 Late Disgorged BdB

Vintage Conditions

2013 was something of a rollercoaster with some very warm, dry days and rain before vintage but this all lead to some intense flavours in the fruit and high levels of complexity. We received a healthy yield from our vineyard in 2013, the older vines coping very well with the temperatures and water availability.


The grapes for our Late Disgorged Blanc de Blanc were whole bunch pressed, wild fermented and followed by full malolactic fermentation and tiraging in October 2012. 10 years aging on lees and a lower dosage of 5 grams allows the voluptuous flavours of the fruit to shine through. All our sparkling wines are made in the traditional method with the Late Disgorged Blanc de Blancs seeing a minimum of 10 years ageing in total before we will release it.

Tasting Notes

The aroma offers mouth-watering lemon blossom with hints of fresh-cut lime, combined with rich buttered toast and fresh yeast. The years on lees has created a mouthfeel of delicious richness and creaminess, which balances perfectly with the remarkably fresh citrus fruits. The exceptional Delamere chardonnay ensures a zesty backbone of flinty acidity, giving incredible length and elegance to this rich, generous and profoundly complex wine.

Food matches

The Late Disgorged can hold up to just about anything with its beautiful biscuity characteristics and structured acidity. But we suggest having this wine with some fresh oysters or grilled Octopus. Perhaps even with some roast lamb at Christmas lunch.
