A great vintage, fine and powerful, this 2012 offers a balance of ripeness and chalk. The richness of the fruit allows us to easily perceive maturity. Aromas of fresh hazelnut and roasted pear, are complimented by freshness, pink grapefruit, and brilliant length on the palate. The long finish is a testament to the exceptional terroir of Verzy and the 2012 vintage.
The Verzy Grand Cru is located on the slope of the Montagne de Reims, Southeast of the town of Reims. Most of the vineyards are on north-facing slopes and are planted mainly to Pinot Noir. Verzy was promoted from Premier Cru to Grand Cru in 1985 alongside Chouilly, Oiry, Oger, and Mesnilsur-Oger.
