Description

“The 2012 Brut Nature Blanc de Blancs Brut Nature 1er Cru Terre de Vertus is powerful, dense and also surprisingly tightly wound given the richness of the year. Readers will have to be patient with the 2012, as it is quite closed in on itself today. Dried pear, green apple, citrus, smoke, licorice and dried herbs open up over time, but the 2012 offers a decidedly austere and nervy expression of Chardonnay at this stage. Even so, the interplay of power and crystalline intensity is compelling. Non-dosé. Disgorged: March 2018.” 93+ Antonio Galloni

“From the nose, this champagne presents itself with extreme delicacy, with a good sense of ripe aromatics. A woven, textured bubble carried by a salty and lemon tinge, this is extremely invigorating. A finish of delicate polish.” 17 out of 20 La Revue du Vins de France
