Tasting Notes

The 2012 Extra Brut Vieille Vigne de Levant is another standout in this range from Pierre and Sophie Larmandier. It possesses tremendous intensity and tons of pure power. Lemon confit, apricot, spice, marzipan and dried herbs saturate the palate in a Champagne endowed with serious concentration. The 2012 is dense, rich and full of personality. These 50-70 year-old vines confer notable complexity. The 2012 was vinified in neutral oak and bottled with dosage of two grams per liter. Disgorged: June, 2021. 96 points, Antonio Galloni, Vinous
