Unfurling in the glass with incipiently complex aromas of citrus oil, wheat toast, fresh peach and crisp orchard fruit, the newly released 2012 Vintage Brut is full-bodied, deep and tightly wound, with excellent concentration, racy acids and a fine mousse, concluding with a long and penetrating finish. Even though it's still a little reserved after its recent disgorgement.

Based on 52% Pinot Noir and 48% Chardonnay, with 10 grams of dosage, the 2012 Champagne offers a beautifully layered, rich style with loads of brioche and orchard fruits, medium-bodied richness and depth, good acidity, and a clean finish. It's a layered, pure, classic Champagne that’s well worth seeking out. It’s a solid step up over the Cuvée Brut.
