2012 was an excellent year for Champagne, although not without curveballs around harvest! Quality is excellent, and the 2012 Pierre Morlet is no exception! Showing notes like ripe citrus, earthy red berry fruit, with a classic toasty-yeasty mid-palate. A very long finish that hints at exotic spice. Exceptional, rich, satisfying, and fascinating.
