Heiner Lobenberg über:
Champagne La Grande Dame Kusama Edition in Geschenkpackung Flaschengärung 2012

95–96
/100

Lobenberg: Die Limited Edition in Kooperation mit der für ihre Punktmuster berühmten japanischen Künstlerin Yayoi Kusama kommt in einer speziell designten Sammlerbox. Auch in der Flasche steckt mit La Grande Dame aus dem großen Jahr 2012 ein hochkarätiger Stoff. Kraftvoll und tief, mit verführerisch dicht gewirkten Hefegebäcknoten, spannender gelbroter Frucht zwischen Melone, Orangenschale und Minze. Lebhaft und geschliffen, sehr fokussiert, krachend in der Intensität. Power und Frische vereint. Top! 95-96/100

Wine Enthusiast über: Champagne La Grande Dame Kusama Edition in Geschenkpackung Flaschengärung

-- Wine Enthusiast: With a slight preponderance of Pinot Noir in the blend, this wine is rich and impressive. It is still young, with a crisp edge that makes the fruit shine. Apple and citrus flavors are integrated into a mineral vein. 96/100

Decanter über: Champagne La Grande Dame Kusama Edition in Geschenkpackung Flaschengärung

-- Decanter: A generous golden colour betrays the dominance of Pinot Noir in the blend; this theme thereafter maintained by aromatics of fig, wild strawberries and Mirabelle plums; behind that, jasmine, red apples and a distant whiff of woodsmoke. Engaging already, in other words. One’s impressions are confirmed and amplified on the palate, with the aspiration voiced by both chef de caves Dominique and Didier, to allow the ‘cooler’ Pinot Noir sites full rein. This is eloquently evidenced by a subtle and deftly textured structure, the primary fruit notes of nectarine and citrus peel underscored by a richer, still somewhat reticent, core, darker and more savoury of intent and oh, so subtle at the moment. I have every confidence that this characteristic will come into its own over the longer term and mark the 2012 as one of the more successful outings for this outstanding cuvée. 96/100

Wine Spectator über: Champagne La Grande Dame Kusama Edition in Geschenkpackung Flaschengärung

-- Wine Spectator: Fine and graceful, this dances across the palate with its bright, well-defined freshness and detailed flavors of Mandarin orange, toast point, crème de cassis and minerally oyster shell. Subtle in its intensity, with all the pieces seamlessly knit into an elegant whole. 95/100

Suckling über: Champagne La Grande Dame Kusama Edition in Geschenkpackung Flaschengärung

-- Suckling: Aromas of lime zest, lemon and brioche follow through to a full body with a round, creamy texture, fine bubbles and a delicious finish. Direct and focused 2012. Lots of elegance and energy in this. 94/100

Galloni über: Champagne La Grande Dame Kusama Edition in Geschenkpackung Flaschengärung

-- Galloni: The 2012 La Grande Dame is terrific. In fact, it is one of the finest recent Grande Dames I can remember tasting. Vibrant and tense, the 2012 exudes energy. At this stage, the natural richness of the 2012 vintage is hidden behind the wine's bright, salivating acids. Green apple, pear, mint and white pepper add a brilliant aromatic top register. I would cellar the 2012 for at least a few years, as it is nowhere near ready to drink. 93/100
