The year 2013 saw a late harvest in Champagne, with picking on the Mailly estate delayed until 8 October. It was soon apparent that the grape musts met all expectations, expressing the estate’s magnificent spectrum of aromas on a dynamic undercurrent of freshly picked white grapes. Notes of spice, juicy pears, crisp apples, zingy mandarins and cooked fruit combine to give subtle voice to the thousand different nuances that lend density to our lieux-dits. This is a Grand Cru Champagne driven by elegance and freshness, with all the hallmarks of a blend made from 75% Pinot Noir and 25% Chardonnay. More than six years of quiet slumber in our cellars have cushioned the substance of the Pinot Noir, adding just enough creaminess to temper the irresistible energy of the vintage.
““NATURE” 2013 comes in a custom gift box whose artistry echoes the artistry behind the wine itself. Wine and gift box fuse to create a double work of art - a gift made for the pleasure of giving and a gift for which the giver will be remembered.”
