Disgorged in February 2020 with 4.5 grams per liter dosage, the 2012 Extra-Brut Grand Cru Cuvée 1522 is already showing beautifully, unwinding in the glass with hints of golden orchard fruit, fresh peach, honeycomb and blanched almonds. Full-bodied, vinous and concentrated, it's elegantly muscular, with terrific depth at the core, racy acids and a seamless profile. Given its very recent disgorgement, it's surprisingly open, but it will nonetheless reward bottle age. William Kelley, Robert Parker Wine Advocate
The 2012 Extra-Brut Cuvée 1522 is creamy, rich and expansive, with striking resonance that builds with time in the glass. Baked apple tart, spice and warm toasty notes are front and center. The 2012 is not super-complex, but it is flat-out delicious, and a real pleasure to taste. Dosage is 4.5 grams per liter. Antonio Galloni, Vinous
