(80% Pinot Noir, 20% Chardonnay, 8 years en tirage, 5g/liter)
2013 was harsh and very capricious. Our dormant vines were covered with snow in the winter. Spring came a little later than usual with intense cold in May. Violent storms took place in June leading up to an exceptionally warm and sunny summer, allowing the cycle of the vineyard to ripe the grapes with an extremely high freshness.
The harvest in 2013 was overdue and started quite late but the result was worth the wait. This weather pattern exalted the finest of our Pinot Noir and Chardonnay. The quality of the fruit was superb and 2013 is to become a year that will go down in Champagne’s history books.
This vintage rested on lees for 8 years in our dark and chalky cellars. It reveals an extraordinary finesse and a capacity to age.
It is a very limited blend of the most expressive wines from 2013. Only 2,667 bottles were produced and just a few are currently released.
At first sight, a shimmering golden color and delicate string of pearls rising to the top of the glass.
En bouche, flavors of perfectly ripened figs mingling with light notes of brioche and honey giving the way to intense cooked fruits and tarte tatin flavor, enhanced by a lovely well balanced finish and a final hint of crisp Bosc pear.
Launched in 2021, Champagne Alexandra Sainz celebrates my family’s heritage as grapegrowers pioneers in Bouzy. I am proud to continue my family’s farming tradition and honor the values I have learned from my parents. Alexandra Sainz, Proprietor
