Sparkling wine. Champagne, France. Sustainable. "The 2012 Herbert Beaufort “Cuvée l’Âge d’Or” is composed entirely of pinot noir and is the top of the line bottling from this fine Bouzy maison. The wine was disgorged in April of 2017, giving it four years aging sur latte and the malo was blocked here for the vins clairs, as is the case for most of the other bottlings from Monsieur Beaufort. It was also given an additional six months aging in bottle in the cellars to recover from its disgorgement prior to release. The bouquet is deep and very classy, offering up scents of peach, apple, patissière, gentle smokiness, a fine base of soil and incipient notes of nutskin in the upper register. On the palate the wine is crisp, full-bodied, complex and very nicely balanced with fine backend mineral drive, elegant mousse, quite modest dosage (if any) and a long, focused and superb finish. This wine has the lovely weight of Bouzy pinot noir, but is quite defined by its minerality on the palate and has excellent backend cut and grip. A very impressive example of the superb 2012 vintage." — 93 Points, John Gilman, View From The Cellar #72 (November/December 2017)
