A family owned grower Champagne based in the village of Ecueil, Louis Brochet was founded in the 18th century by matriarch Marie Arsène Brochet who personally selected the vines used for massal selection. The first Brochet label appeared in 1881. According to the winery, the 2012 Millesime Brut is 65% Pinot Noir and 35% Chardonnay and shows "bright pale gold colour with silvery-green highlights; good effervescence with nice lively, fine bubbles that rise in plumes. The nose is generous, infused with subtlety and delicacy. It opens with aromas of white fruit, quickly yielding to notes of citrus fruit, or exotic fruit. Aeration brings greater maturity with dried fruit, grilled and toasty notes, culminating in a background revealing acacia fragrances with light honey accents. This nose is beautifully complex. The mouthfeel is bold and nicely crisp, it charms with its pleasant freshness, giving it pep, even an ethereal character, and with its generosity."
