With 5 year of ageing, 2012 Champagne Jacquart Blanc de Blancs has a seamless fusion of rich minerality and fruity freshness typical of the vintage. Carefully judged dosage creates an appealing, creamy sensation on the finish which allows an ultimate ethereal feeling to make the taste buds tingle with its menthol and iodine-like accents.
"The colour is light-straw and the bouquet is fresh crisp and complex, with some toasty background to the lemon citrus and meringue, nutty, nougat flavours and aromas. The palate is tight and refined, intense and very long. The line of the wine is quite excellent and the overall style and balance are superb. The finish is very dry, assisted by a slight phenolic grip, all in harmony. A superb blanc de blancs.” - 95 points Huno Hooke
