The Details

Tasting Note Pale gold in colour with a delicate bead and persistent mousse. Intense, complex aromas of preserved lemon, poached pear and oyster shell with underlying nuances of truffle and roasted hazelnuts. The palate is elegant, layered and complex.
Best Enjoyed With Perfect as an aperitif, or enjoy with truffle-infused scrambled eggs and lobster on toasted brioche.
Treatment Gentle handling, partial barrel fermentation in French oak for seven months and complex assemblage blending has resulted in this classic wine. Just under eight years of ageing on yeast lees after secondary fermentation gives wonderful yeast complexity to the final wine.

Accolades

The palate is then vibrant and relatively youthful
In the best years Jansz hold back a small amount of stock for additional ageing on lees, the 2013 having spent over seven years gaining complexity, as is seen in some of the finest vintage Champagnes. For fans of the style this must be one of the top value LDs from anywhere around the world and this vintage is surely one of the best yet from Jansz. What really marks the 2013 is a brilliant mix of power, complexity and, in particular, subtlety which all come together beautifully. Pale golden in colour, it opens up with a delicious array of aromas – almond cream, apple tartin, florals and lightly buttered toast. Despite its age, the palate is then vibrant and relatively youthful with crisp acidity underpinning waves of delicate mushroomy flavour which fan out over a very long and reserved finish. A stunning wine that still has some years ahead of it.
Angus Hughson

The palate has a fresh and lively feel
This is a late disgorgement of the vintage cuvée, rested on lees for almost eight years. A blend of 53% chardonnay and 47% pinot noir. This has added toastiness, with grilled-hazelnut and lemon-peel notes, as well as peach. The palate has a fresh and lively feel with still-fresh lemon and peach flavors on offer. Drink now.
Nick Stock

Profound, deep and remaining still youthfully sharp
Spending 86 months under tirage. A blend of Chardonnay (53%) and Pinot Noir (47%), The wine originally put together by Natalie Fryar, with Jennifer Doyle (long time Jansz vine whisperer) finishing this off. She’s recently taken the reins from Teresa Heuzenroeder (who took over from Nat Fryar). Still a youthful pale gold colour and fine beading. Rich and layered with nougat, earthy truffle, preserved lemon, briny roast chicken skin, smoky toasted nuts and creamy butter wrapper. Profound, deep and remaining still youthfully sharp. The extended time on lees brings complexity and power which will continue to develop over the coming years.
Regan Drew

All over it’s impressive
On the one hand it feels honeyed, creamy and mellow; on the other its herbal and citrussy and powerful. It finishes dry, almost grippy but there’s much going on here, both flavour- and texture-wise, not to mention aromatically. All over it’s impressive.
