2012 Maison Mumm RSRV Blanc de Blancs Grand Cru Brut : Exuberant & Fascinating!
Score : 93/100
This Blanc de Blancs Champagne received the BRONZE Award at Social Vignerons AWARDS
This 2012 vintage Champagne Blanc de Blancs comes in a slightly pale delicate lemon-yellow color.
The nose is also rather introvert, a little tight, giving away elegant floral characters, a touch of lime, and oaky vanilla tones, all of them in very subtle notes.
The palate is more affirmed, with an exuberant tasting profile: upfront striking acidity greatly complemented by a definite saltiness, uncommon at this level of intensity but enjoyable. The whole is provided in an extremely smooth and silky texture, with stunningly fine bubbles giving a creamy impression.
Flavors are less shy than on the nose: powerful incredibly fresh lemon notes, sweet spices from the oak and maturation give an impressive depth to a light and lively experience.
A very well rounded vintage Blanc de Blancs providing many fascinating facets to tasting a sparkling wine. Unique personality given by the concentration of the acidity, salty minerality and an utter smoothness.
