However, difficult conditions often lead to great things...The low yields, due to the unpredictable weather, combined with continental conditions towards the end of the season, gave us unusual levels of maturity, resulting in rich, full-bodied and structured wines worthy of the greatest vintages in Champagne.Golden yellow in colour with glistening gold tints and an incredibly dynamic effervescence. The 2012 vintage holds rich and complex aromas of zesty and candied fruit mingled with pollen, roasted hazelnut and Madagascan vanilla. After aeration, the bouquet develops rich notes of fresh pastries and smoky notes from bottle ageing. The palate is delicious, concentrated and chalky showing incredible tension and perfectly honed aromatic precision. The attack is powerful, distinctive and concentrated revealing a silky, mouth-coating texture, characteristic of the ripe Pinot noirs from the 2012 vintage.
A new type of viticulture carried out at full power, resonates deeply within this new vintage. This unusual and complex year gave birth to two cuvees, both intensely Cristal: a white and a rose. Wines in which finesse, power, purity and elegance fill the entire space and once again relay the splendour of these chalk lands.
