Such wonderful transparency and clarity in its nature with lightly cooked apples and chalk. Some white pepper. Full body. Totally integrated fruit and acidity and a long and flavorful finish. Love the brightness. Drink now.
Disgorged in March 2017, the 2012 Brut Blanc de Blancs is excellent, delivering a complex bouquet of warm pastry, dried white flowers, lemon oil and some smoky, gently reductive top notes. On the palate, the wine is medium to full-bodied, ample and fleshy, with a rich but precise core of fruit that reveals all the concentration of the vintage but is elegantly rendered, underpinned by tangy acids and concluding with a precise, chalky finish. Drink 2020-2040. (WK)
This beautifully balanced wine aligns the tautness of the Chardonnay with swathes of rich apple and lime flavors. It is vibrant, still ripe with freshness and acidity. Drink now. *Cellar Selection* (RV)
Soft Welsh-gold in colour, this is subtle yet bristling with energy, with a lively and persistent mousse. The nose is less overtly tropical than sometimes, and all the better for that, with faint notes of oyster shell and smoke beyond an envelope of citric harmony. Almonds and honey are also in evidence. On the palate the carapace of youth fails completely to conceal the impressive potential, its development to be marked by an elegant floral tribute and then a languid, upholstered maturity. Give this one a little more time than usual. Drinking Window 2020-2026. (SF)
Pol Roger's 2012 Brut Blanc de Blancs is terrific. The natural ripeness of the year amps up the Chardonnay flavors. Rich and ample in the glass, with tons of depth, the 2012 really shines. Readers should expect a pretty big Champagne, but all the elements are nicely balanced. Disgorged: February, 2019 (AG)
Lively, piercing freshness and very lemon-zesty. Appetising and energetic. Just needs a little time to round out and gain a bit more persistence. 17+/20 points. (JR)
