2013 Vintage Reserve Brut


Kenelm Club price: £36.00

Our internationally renowned flagship wine, named ‘Supreme Champion’ at the 2023 WineGB Awards, is the official English sparkling of the House of Commons gift shops and the Royal Navy’s HMS Queen Elizabeth.

Dominated by Chardonnay, this fizz epitomises Digby’s ‘sophisticated yet racy’ motto, with significant ageing (on lees and in the bottle) for balance and complexity.

Head Blender notes:

“I only declare a vintage for this style when Chardonnay, particularly that grown on greensand, shows the taut power and structure required for long ageing – a key principle of the Digby wines.

“Pristine yet sophisticated, this 2013 combines the energy of all special vintages with that harvest’s unique, concentrated power. The wine’s extensive ageing ability is supported by deep levels of flavour from the Pinots on the lingering finish.”

CEO & Head Blender
