Wine Spectator 92 Points - Ripe blackberry, pastry cream and lemon meringue notes are layered on the fine and creamy mousse in this lightly toasty, well-balanced Champagne. Bright and mouthwatering, with a sleek, spiced finish. Drink now through 2027.
Wine Advocate Robert Parker 92 Points - Taittinger's 2012 Millésime Brut is a stainless steel-fermented blend of 50% Côte ded Blancs Chardonnay and 50% Montagne de Reims Pinot Noir bottled in 2013. It offers a clear and elegant, intensely aromatic and fruity bouquet of sweet cherries along with hazelnut and some incense flavors. It is a round, intense and well-structured yet fine Champagne with ripe and almost juicy fruit and a tight, still restrained finish. A bit sweet for my nordic taste, but this is a mouthful of Brut. Disgorged with nine grams of dosage in January 2017.
Wine Enthusiast 95 Points - Made from equal parts Pinot Noir and Chardonnay, this still young Champagne is rich in the Taittinger style, with an elegant poise that is impressive. The wine, with its apricot and ripe apple fruit, is generously tempered by bright acidity and a crisp edge. Drink from 2021.
