Description

// 60% Pinot Noir and 40% Chardonnay

Dosage - 8 g/L

"The 2012 vintage is a beautiful pale golden yellow; with fine bubbles that are both delicate and dynamic. Initially, the nose shows subtle toasted and smoked notes with a touch of licorice and earthy tones. When swirled in the glass, fruity notes of apricot, blackthorn, quince, blueberry and fresh almonds add an extra dimension to the wine. This incredible aromatic concentration, very typical of the year, is the focus of the wine's merit. The palate is mineral and taut with excellent freshness, with notes of quince, vanilla and vineyard peaches on the mid-palate, followed by a firm, crisp finish. A lovely vintage which will continue to develop great complexity and generosity over time." - House Notes

The 2012 Champagne Millésime Brut is classic and harmonious. Layered and ripe with brioche, hazelnut, and baked apple, it is mouth-filling and round, with a pillowy mousse of ripe pear, custard, and orange oil. This is an assertive and forward wine with a timeless feel. Drink now to 2043." - 95 Points, Jeb Dunnuck

"Very lemony (blossoms, zest and candied peel), with some red-berry and fresh tobacco-leaf notes. Impressive richness and concentration, the creaminess from lees beautifully matched by the fine mousse and mineral freshness. The latter also powers the structured and saline finish that makes a serious statement." - 95 Points, James Suckling
