The 2013 Brut Blanc de Blancs L'Esprit is a terrific example of a year in which both ripeness and acidities were elevated. Rich and sumptuous on the palate, with striking layers of nuance throughout, the 2013 has so much to offer. The combination of textural breadth and tension is utterly compelling. And that, in essence, is what makes 2013 such a fascinating vintage. Another few years in bottle will help soften some of the edges. Dosage is 4.5 grams per liter. Disgorged: July, 2018.
