Charles Heidsieck Champagne Brut Millesime 2012 750 ml
Winemaker Notes: The 2012 vintage is a beautiful pale golden yellow; with fine bubbles that are both delicate and dynamic. Initially, the nose shows subtle toasted and smoked notes with a touch of licorice and earthy tones. When swirled in the glass, fruity notes of apricot, blackthorn, quince, blueberry and fresh almonds add an extra dimension to the wine. This incredible aromatic concentration, very typical of the year, is the focus of the wine’s merit. The palate is mineral and taut with excellent freshness, with notes of quince, vanilla and vineyard peaches on the mid-palate, followed by a firm, crisp finish. An excellent pairing with smoked dishes such as smoked eel, smoked Scamorza, and roast chicken with chicory sauce. A lovely vintage which will continue to develop great complexity and generosity over time.Blend: 60% Pinot Noir, 40% Chardonnay
Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate – “Disgorged in 2019 with eight grams per liter dosage, the 2012 Brut Millésimé offers up aromas of crisp orchard fruit, white flowers and clear honey, complemented by hints of toasted bread, citrus zest and linden. Medium to full-bodied, elegantly fleshy and nicely concentrated, with lively acids and a pinpoint mousse, it’s more generous and demonstrative than the 2008, but it will nonetheless reward a bit of bottle age.”
