Presenting a rich bouquet of yellow fruit flavors and discrete bouquet of warm bread, lily pollen and beeswax, the 2012 extra Brut Hyménée is full bodied and firm, with a refine and elegant frothy mousse and well-structured profile.
As a vintage champagne, the harvest can only be from the year of the vintage, in this bottle you will find the essence of how was the 2012 harvest… just perfect!

As the name suggests, these most qualitative juices are obtained from the first pressing. Less qualitative size juices (second and third press) do not enter into the production of our champagnes.
