Brut Millésimé 2012

 

A VINTAGE SUITED FOR LONG AGEING

The year 2012 made news. Not often does so chaotic and challenging a vintage provide wines with such incredible balance,
concentration and harmony. Today the 2012 vintage has found its place amongst the great Champagne years.

2012, a vintage, an evidence, a"classic" for Charles.

The House has meticulously selected 10 Grands and Premiers Crus this cuvée is enticing for its pleasant smoothness, aromatic intensity and the saline freshness that is so typical of the House.

Its elegance and depth make it ideal for enjoying and pairing with the most sophisticated dishes.

It is also perfectly suited for further ageing.

Minerality, complexity, greatness

Appearance: 

The 2012 vintage is a beautiful pale golden yellow; with fine bubbles that are both delicate and dynamic.

ON THE NOSE:

Initially, the nose shows subtle toasted and smoked notes with a touch of liquorice and earthy tones. When swirled in the glass, fruity notes of apricot and fresh almonds add an extra dimension to the wine. This incredible aromatic concentration, very typical of the year, is the focus of the wine’s merit. Fine bubbles that are both delicate and dynamic.

ON THE PALATE: 

Mineral and taut with excellent freshness, with notes of quince, vanilla and vineyard peaches on the mid-palate, followed by a firm, crisp finish. 

"An excellent pairing with smoked dishes. A lovely vintage which will continue to develop great complexity and generosity over time." Cyril Brun
