Cool, rainy winter months finally allowed the vines to bud at the beginning of April, more or less average for the season. The “arrears” of 2-3 weeks compared to 2012 however persisted throughout the year and could not be made up even in the very hot days of July and August. The grapes nevertheless began to ripen in 100% ideal conditions and harvesting of the first grapes began on 12 September. Cooler temperatures for the harvest and beautiful autumn weather then ensured healthy, ripe fruit. The 2013 white wines are notable for their sensational quality, with intensive fruit typical of the variety, a fresh acidity and a harmonious structure.

– Golden yellow tone
– fine and persistent perlage, thanks to the long time on the lees
– white flowers memories, definite smell and lively minerality
– bright and rapturous acidity

“I drink […] when I‘m happy and when I‘m sad. Sometimes I drink it when I‘m alone. When I have company I consider it obligatory. I trifle with it if I‘m not hungry and drink it when I am. Otherwise, I never touch it, unless I‘m thirsty.” (Lily Bollinger)
