A house favorite Jose Michel is a go-to and annual purchase for us. We contacted Jose Michel and asked if they had any 2012 available, they said they were still on the 2011 vintage but would release some 2012 just for us. While not their typical go-to varietal of Pinot Meunier, this is lovely Blanc de Blancs. Lively expression, this is light on its feet, refreshing, and the perfect beginning to a get-together or meal. We love the delicacy and ease of enjoyment of this Champagne with no harm done if drunk now but we have high hopes for it a few years down the line. A very nice Blanc de Blancs at low pricing only and for the time being, only available here.
