Champagne Marc Chauvet RM Brut Millésime 2012

Champagne, FranceChampagne Marc Chauvet's vineyards are located in the 1er cru Rilly-la-Montagne, in the heart of Montagne de Reims. Brother and sister Clotilde and Nicolas took over from their parents, and brought modernity to the winery. Nicolas takes care of the vineyard and Clotilde, enologist, is in charge of winemaking. From the excellent 2012 vintage, this blends 60% pinot noir with 40% chardonnay, with no MLF, around 6% fermented in wood, and 6 years' aging sur lattes. Creamy and dough laden, with ripe pear, red apple, lemon pith and peel and toasted nut filling a complete core. The finish cleans up and lingers long with pithy lemony chalkiness. Very smart, and drinking beautifully now.Tasted: 01 November 2022Tasted by: Treve RingPrices:
