  • Tasting Notes

    • A great vintage, fine and powerful, this 2012 offers a balance of ripeness and chalk. The richness of the fruit allows us to easily perceive maturity. Aromas of fresh hazelnut and roasted pear, are complimented by freshness, pink grapefruit, and brilliant length on the palate. The long finish is a testament to the exceptional terroir of Verzy and the 2012 vintage.



  • Montagne Verzy Grand Cru — 2012 – Wine Spectator – 94 Points

    “A mouthwatering Champagne, with a lovely sense of vibrant buoyancy to the flavors of patisserie apple and pear fruit, chopped almond, spun honey and grated ginger as they ride the fine, lacy mousse. Offers an expressive profile and minerally overtones, lingering on the chalk- and oyster shell–laced finish.”
