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
