We consider the 2012 vintage in Champagne to be one of the best to date in the 21st century, and are not alone in this appraisal – as such we are delighted to offer the 2012 Brut Millesime Blanc de Blancs from Champagne Franck Bonville to our members. “It is a great vintage. Probably better than 1996 and close to 1990 on average, but in some special locations it could well be better than that – closer to a 1947,” Jean-Baptiste Lécaillon, chef de Caves at Louis Roederer “The quality and the intensity are definitely there to make an outstanding vintage,” Richard Geoffroy, Chef de Caves at Dom Pérignon. Yields were lower than average resulting in limited quantities of this outstanding cuvee. The Champagne is 100% Chardonnay from Avize and has spent 54 months resting on lees in the cool underground cellars carved out form chalk. It represents exceptional quality and value for Blanc de Blancs vintage Champagne.
