BRUT MILLÉSIME 2012
For us this wine is definitely «the vintage of the decade».
The quality of the harvest prooved that all years finishing by a 2 give excellent wines in Champagne (just like 2002, 1992, 1982, etc.).
This amazing vintage has a special place in our hearts because it’s our daughter’s year of birth. For this reason every label has her profile picture and each label is different (the coloured squares move around).
Made out of 100% wine with no malolactic fermentation in order to keep the freshness over time, with our usual blend of 1/3 Chardonnay & 2/3 Pinot Noir, this is a wine that’s made for aging. It’s already spent 9 years on the lees, but it has an great potential of up to 10 years aging in your cellar.
Colour: Yellow colour with golden sparkles with fine effervescence and a pretty cordon at the surface.
Aromas: Yellow fruit aromas, with a fine touch of brioche.
Flavours: Beautiful lemony acidity followed by yellow fruit aromas (peach & pear), candied fruits with a slight touch of caramel and coffee at the end. Round champagne with a great lenght.
