The Brut Vintage 2012 boasts a delicate pale golden color glinting with silver reflections. Its refined elegant bubbles give rise to a steady persistence underlined by a fine and regular foam. Refined and subtle, the nose is full of freshness and opens to the scent of white fruits (peach). The first aromas are reminiscent of dried fruits, followed by enticing notes of flowers, gingerbread and mild spices mingling with fragrances of Viennese pastries. The mouth is characterized by a neat and firm attack over freshness. It reveals a nice balance between roundness and suppleness on a complex structure. The crispness of the citrus fragrances lingers throughout the aftertaste and enhances the aromatic range of spices and fresh white fruits (peach) already present on the nose. Excellent ageing potential. The Brut Vintage 2012 enhances fine dishes of distinctive character, like chicken with a foie gras stuffing, capon with morel mushrooms, chicken supreme...

Wine EnthusiastThis rich, full-bodied Champagne is a classic from this producer. Its richness is emphasized by ripe Pinot Noir that dominates the blend, typical of the house style. A blend of grand and premier cru wines from across the Montagne de Reims and Côte des Blancs, this wine will age much further. Drink from 2022.

Wine AdvocateDisgorged 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.
