A very typical 2012 that is round and creamy with lovely richness and creamy texture. Round and fine tannins. Subtle ripe apples. Some bread dough. Flavorful and delicious. Drink now.
A delicate bead forms a regular, pirouetting stream of bubbles. The wine is bright and delicately golden in appearance, tinged with silver-green. Elegant and graceful, this Champagne is initially underpinned on the palate by bucolic, springtime notes of fresh flowers and angelica. The complex aromas gain in intensity, revealing notes of fresh honey and plums, followed by mint and coriander on the finish. The perfectly balanced freshness ill support this delicately mineral Blanc de Blancs as it attains its true potential. The Collection Vintage 2012 Blanc de Blancs combines the purity and elegance of chardonnay with the rich character of the vintage.
The grapes selected for this 100% Chardonnay Champagne are sourced predominantly from the Côte des Blancs, bringing freshness and minerality, and from Sézannais, Montgueux and the Marne Valley. This mosaic of vineyards and soils (clay, limestone and chalk) brings great aromatic complexity to this cuvée.
