2013 Jérôme Prévost La Closerie Les Béguines


2013 Jérôme Prévost La Closerie Les Béguines at New Year's Eve dinner.

A terroir-driven champagne to mark the end of the 2020. As any fine wine it needed preparation and contact with oxygen to show its full capacity. Ever since I tasted the first examples of it, I have been a fan of the cool and elegant 2013 vintage. Today it has complex and expressive aromas as a result of post disgorgement ageing. ’13 Les Béguines is not about individual fruits but about full-fledged experience and long saline aftertaste. Seeing the Champagne region gradually warm up, there will not be many years like 2013 in the future...

Happy 2021!
