Details

The 2013 Cuvée Brut is a 65/35 blend of Chardonnay and Pinot Noir, bottled in August 2014 and disgorged in December 2017 (40 months on the lees). It comes in with five grams of residual sugar and 12% alcohol. It is quite dry. The Pinot Noir was sourced exclusively from Magdalena Vineyard, the Chardonnay from HJW and Josef Vineyards. This was seen before, but this is a new disgorgement. (Kudos to Wiemer for being transparent—the disgorgement is noted with a stamp on the back label.) Whether it's the new disgorgement or I simply was too unkind the first time around, this is much more impressive now. This has fleshed out, showing both more concentration and more intensity. Big, dense and palate-coating, this adds a gripping, dry and long finish with a little sharpness. There are some whispers of complexity now, too, but it is still young. At this point, I won't be surprised if it improves more in the bottle too. -Mark Squires, Apr 2018

Futures Policy

You pay for wines on a Futures order, plus any local alcohol taxes, at the time of order confirmation. You are responsible, at the time of pick-up, for any charges billed to Binny’s Beverage Depot which are above the prepaid price of the wine and may include tariffs, duties, sales taxes and/or shipping and insurance costs.

The minimum order for Wine Futures is 6 bottles per item. You will be notified by e-mail that we received your order request. By the next regular business day, you will receive an e-mail confirming available quantities on your order request.

We reserve the right to limit quantities of wines ordered on a Futures request.

When your wine arrives, we will contact you to make arrangements for pick-up or shipping. In the event we are unable to contact you within 90 days of receiving your wine, we reserve the right to dispose of the wine and refund the original price you paid, less a 20% service fee.

Required tariffs, duties, sales taxes and shipping and insurance charges are assessed at the applicable rate when the wine is shipped to you. Wines are shipped in damage resistant containers made for shipping wine bottles. If you would like to have the original wooden crates, they can be shipped separately via UPS ground for an additional shipping charge.
