2012 was one of the most challenging and complicated years ever experienced in Champagne. However, difficult conditions often lead to great things, the low yields, due to the unpredictable weather, combined with continental conditions towards the end of the season, gave us unusual levels of maturity, resulting in rich, full-bodied and structured wines worthy of the greatest vintages in Champagne.
Complex aromas of zesty lemon and candied fruit mingle with white flowers, roasted hazelnut and Madagascar vanilla. After aeration, the bouquet develops rich notes of fresh pastries and a hint of smoke from bottle ageing.
The attack is powerful, distinctive and concentrated and reveals a silky, mouth-coating texture – characteristic of the ripe Pinot Noirs from the 2012 vintage. Overall, this champagne has a delicious, concentrated and chalky palate that shows incredible tension and perfectly honed aromatic precision.
