Blanc de Blancs 2013 is the first vintage of this cuvée to include some fruit from Nyetimber’s Hampshire vineyards on chalk. It is a serene, focused blanc de blancs with classic lemon and pear fruit, fragrant magnolia blossom and a clean, cool airiness to it. It is wearing its lees-ageing very lightly at the moment with subtle bakery tones, but more richness will come from time. Because the acidity is tucked into the texture so carefully (unlike some 2013s), this vintage will stay well-knit over the time it needs to come out of its shell.
