Champagne Millésime 2012
Complexity and plenitude
This Millésime 2012 has reached the spheres of plenitude. It can be served with poultry and sauce dishes (fatted chicken in supreme sauce...) and can easily handle foie gras.

The robe of this cuvée has a light amber hue with a silver glimmer to it. Its sparkle is particularly fine and abundant. Its immaculate white foam is creamy.
The nose conveys an impression of maturity and complexity. The overtones of red berries and apple compote are enhanced by hints of citrus, candied orange and orange peels. The first aromas of undergrowth blend with those of dried fruits and nuts (hazelnuts and dates).
Though the attack is vivified by the sparkle, the mouth-feel is gourmand and sappy. This sensation of density leads the wine to a long finish.
