The 2013 Extra-Brut Blanc de Blancs Les Blanches Voies has it all. Rich, vibrant and wonderfully deep, the 2013 shows an extra kick of mid-palate intensity compared to the 2012 tasted alongside it. Lemon confit, graphite, hazelnut, spice and dried flowers are all amplified in a Blanc de Blancs that at times has a Pinot-like level of textural richness and volume. The 2013 is vivid, focused and exceptionally beautiful. This fruit was picked on October 4, the last October harvest at Vilmart. Dosage is 4 grams per liter, on the low side for Vilmart, but perfectly judged for this wine. Disgorged: April 1, 2021.
Anticipated maturity: 2026-2033
