Tasting
R.012 is a symbol of balance and aromatic expression. It is clad in a bright, golden yellow hue. Initially delicate with subtle, fresh aromas of citrus and white flowers, this champagne then opens out to sumptuous notes of plums and acacia honey. R.012 gently coats the palate and its creamy bubbles are simply fabulous. The finish is long and caressing.

With starters, R.012 pairs perfectly with snails in sweet parsley butter. For the main dish, try this great gastronomic champagne with squid seared “à la plancha”, a touch of garlic and tomato caviar, or with a beef tournedos with smoked bacon, served with basil polenta galettes and confit tomatoes. In terms of cheese, it suits fine, hard and semi-hard cheeses, such as Appenzell or mature Comté. When it comes to dessert, “tarte Tatin” or pear cheesecake are perfect matches."
