2012 Hure Freres Champagne Instantanee
John Gilman 92 points! "The 2012 Huré Frères “Instantanée” Extra Brut Millésime is composed of a blend of thirty-five percent each of chardonnay and pinot noir, coupled with thirty percent pinot meunier. It was aged for six years sur latte and disgorged in April of 2019, with a finishing dosage of three grams. I had liked the 2010 version a few months back and the 2012 is a fine follow-up, offering up a fine bouquet of apple, white peach, a complex base of soil tones, lovely smokiness, dried flowers and a gently savory topnote that is hard to attribute, but adds to the aromatic mosaic nicely. On the palate the wine is brisk, full-bodied, focused and youthful, with excellent depth at the core, fine mineral drive on the backend, frothy mousse and a long, nascently complex and very nicely balanced finish. Unlike the 2010 version, which is drinking nicely, the 2012 Instantanée really needs a bit of time in the cellar to really start to blossom properly and hit on all cylinders."
