TASTING NOTES

"Disgorged in October 2018, the 2012 Brut Vintage offers up aromas of smoky peach, apples, pastry cream, white flowers and mandarin. On the palate, the wine is full-bodied, broad and powerful, with more volume and amplitude than its blanc de blancs counterpart, revealing racy balancing acids, an already refined mousse and the impressive concentration that typifies this low-yielding vintage. It's a classic blend of 60% Pinot Noir and 40% Chardonnay that saw seven grams per liter dosage." William Kelley, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate #242

"A cool, pure and distinctly airy nose is comprised by notes of green apple, spice, citrus and plenty of yeasty brioche nuances. The supporting mousse is generous and relatively fine on the wonderfully textured, rich and substantial flavors that deliver excellent complexity on the impressively long finish. This is already drinking very well though it clearly has the stuffing to age for another 10 years if a more mature fruit and flavor profile is your preference. Lovely stuff and fashioned in a full-flavored style." Allen Meadows, Burghound.com, Issue 76

"Fine and creamy, with a delicate frame of mouthwatering acidity, this harmonious Champagne offers well-meshed flavors of yellow plum, biscuit and grated ginger. Floral, spice and mineral accents mesh with the finish. Drink now through 2027. 500 cases imported." Wine Spectator

"The 2012 Brut Vintage is radiant and super-expressive from the get-go. Apricot, pastry, baked apple and buttery notes wrap around the palate effortlessly. Soft and caressing, with tons of immediacy, the 2012 is quite showy today. More importantly, it is delicious and also very easy to like." Antonio Galloni, Vinous.com

"Magnum. Lovely salty-bread aromas, like focaccia with those big sea-salt crystals. Beautiful baked-apple fruit, full body, creamy texture with a lovely smokiness – is that the Pinot element? The fruit is so alluring on the palate. A real wine to savour. Complex and lengthy, with all the classic hallmarks of vintage champagne." Richard Hemming MW, JancisRobinson.com
