2012 was an unprecedented year in the Champagne region. After long, consecutive episodes of rain in the spring, the month of August was exceptionally hot and sunny, ideal weather for healthy ripening.
To craft this Millésime Spécial Club 2012, we selected 5 of the best small plots in our village of Festigny for the particular richness of their Meunier grapes. These plots were harvested over 2 days (21st and 23rd September) to ensure that the desired ripeness was reached.
