PRESS | 95+ WA “Still tightly wound after its disgorgement in April 2021, the 2012 Extra-Brut Blanc de Blancs Grand Cru Vieille Vigne du Levant offers up an inviting bouquet of pear, peach, orange zest, freshly baked bread and pastry cream. Full-bodied, rich and concentrated, it's an elegantly muscular, layered wine, with lively acids and a pinpoint mousse, concluding with a resonant finish. Despite its flesh and power, it's still tightly wound, so at least a few years' patience is recommended." - William Kelley, Wine Advocate
