The expression of a single year of harvest, Abelé 1757 – Millésime 2012 reflects the climatic conditions so specific in Champagne. It was also a near miracle, given that the weather was far from conducive to producing an outstanding vintage.
60 % Chardonnay - 40 % Pinot Noir
2012 has to be one of Champagne’s greatest successes. It was also a near miracle, given that the weather was far from conducive to producing an outstanding vintage. During winter, temperatures on the slopes plunged to rare lows, and in spring, the vines were subjected to abundant, if not violent, hail.
In early July, the vines were still a week behind schedule compared to the 10-year average. The old saying “It all rests on August”, never rang so true as in 2012. Warm, sunny weather set in during the first days of September until the start of the harvest, and promoted ideal ripening in the grapes.
The natural, well-drained soils in fact make all the difference; the chalk soils absorbed any excess water, releasing it back to the vines later in the season when most needed. Fewer grape bunches per vine also had a hand to play in creating stunning ripeness and concentration.
Brut Vintage 2012 expresses the unique character of the vintage, while remaining true to the distinctive Abelé 1757 style.
Generous in character and revealing huge flavour potential, the Brut Vintage 2012 is a joy to savour. Whether enjoyed as an aperitif or with food in great company, this Champagne is the perfect partner to enhance the most exquisite dishes.
We advise you to serve the Abelé 1757 Champagnes at a temperature between 9 and 12 ° C to fully reveal their richness. Serving your bottle too cold would prevent the expression of aromas.
Our Champagne is delivered at a stage of perfect maturity, its aging having already taken place in the cellar, controlled by its maker. However, it can be kept for several years as long as the bottle is kept lying down, in a cool place, away from light and draf
We recommend a low and constant temperature (around 10 ° C), high humidity, storage away from light, noise and vibrations.
