2013 has been another atypic year for Champagne. The harvest started in October for the first time in 20 years. The reasons are: exceptional freshness with late flowering (end of July - 2 weeks behind), balanced by a hot and sunny summer but stormy too… At last the cold and rain set in from September. It was a year of big differences in the timing of the harvest depending on the plots, with picking occurring over 13 days.
Vintage 2013 ended with a high yield of 12.000 kg per hectare, and a good balance between acidity and sugar for all over our plots.

Aged on lies for 8 years to reach its plenitude, the maturity, complexity and personality of this Cuvée de Réserve are what make it stand out. This Vintage champagne was crafted with grapes from our oldest vines from 4 different crus, 2 of which are Grand Crus (Cramant et Avize).
