The ‘12 is not quite as round as the ‘11. Not showing it’s 6 years on the lees as boldly. Still some toasty notes to compliment the white fruit and acidity. Has only been in bottle for a few months so might integrate a bit more in the short term.

Usually not a fan of Dom. Carneros (due to excessive CO2 in current/early releases) their Late Disgorged stuff has my attention.

This thing ends up with 6 years on the lees and damn does it benefit (that is 2x the standard length of time). It was my favorite at the winery in a lineup of their sparklers and it still sings now. Toasty and creamy, but underneath are beautiful bass notes from pinot and brightness from the chard. Delicious.

Basically tastes like quality French champagne. They should do all their bottles like this.
