VM93: Sourced from 20 parcels in Mesnil-sur-Oger, the 2012 Extra Brut Blanc de Blancs Grand Cru is a fine choice for readers who enjoy Champagnes with a bit of bottle age. Still quite fresh and vibrant, the 2012 gives off tons of energy. If anything, I find it a bit reserved for the year. That won't be an issue for readers who appreciate restraint over power. Lemon confit, marzipan, tangerine oil, mint and white pepper linger. This is one of the more taut 2012s | have come across. Dosage is 3.5 grams per liter. Disgorged: February, 2023.
