92 Vinous - The 2012 Chemin de Reims, 100% Chardonnay, is a powerful, tightly wound wine. Graphite, smoke, ash and earthy notes add a dark register to this powerful, driven Blanc de Blancs. Vinous and rich in the glass, the 2012 has a lot to offer. The Chemin de Reims is a wine of real power and substance. Slightly elevated volatile acidity might trouble some tasters, but the wine has so much character, that it is easy to look past some of the small imperfections.
