K&L Notes

This refined blanc de blancs has an overall creamy, but lithe, texture. It has a crisp, taught energy that harmoniously plays with the nuanced hints of tropical fruit, and a citrus cut keeps it feeling definitively dry. A bright and lovely bubbly that can be enjoyed now and stashed for short-term enjoyment.

    The excitement of the best of Avize is all here in this bottle. Like the best of Selosse, Bonville or Agrapart this wine is buzzing with chalky energy and manages both richness and cut at the same time. This wine is very dry, with a dosage of just 4g/l, but it has the natural roundness and toast to bring it into perfect balance. Sadly, what we have is all we will get, so I am buying my case now.

    When our Champagne buyer comes back from his annual buy trip, we are always eager to see what awesome new wines he has discovered. The Petit Bajan Blanc de Blanc is one of those wines and what a gem it is! Complex and rich in texture, this Champagne expresses lemon peel, stone fruit with a nutty back end and solid acid backbone. Champagne fans should not miss this one!

    I was blown away by the complexity on this bottling. I did not expect so much toastiness from a Blanc de Blanc, but the aging time on the lees certainly lent that complexity. It's most definitely not one dimensional though. In true Blanc de Blanc style, when you throw that bright, chalky mineral Chardonnay in, you get a thorough hit of acidity to bring that palate back up from the brioche, almond quality, to intense, fresh, expressive citrus fruit notes. I kept having to go back finding so much going on in this wine, but in such a perfectly balanced format. This is my first introduction to this wife and husband team and it is one I'd be more than pleased to extend to others.

    When two people come together, each owning prime vineyards in Avize and Verzenay, good things happen! The Petit and Bajan Blanc de Blanc is a 100% chardonnay beauty - full and expressive featuring citrus, white flowers and silky texture from extra time on the lees. A surprisingly low dosage keeps things fresh. This was a special find and I'm not sure if we will have it again - so grab some while you can!

    I think I just found my new favorite Champagne for this summer! I love Blanc de Blancs style in general and this particular one has everything I adore. It's perfectly balanced, fresh crunchy acidity complements deep, rich texture and creates ethereal mouthfeel with especially prolonged finish, which (I swear!) doesn't want to quit! There is a hint of brioche on palate and aromatic Asian pear and Golden Delicious apple notes as well as touch of bright citrus. It's seems absolutely perfect and effortlessly seamless. I'll definitely buy it for my own consumption as soon as it arrives here.

    The nuttiness on the palate of this graceful and elegant "Nuit Blanche" is the stuff of pure magic. I was immediately taken aback by this new arrival when Gary poured me a glass. It's fresh, lively, and simply gorgeous on the palate with plenty of depth, but that note of toasted almond brioche on the finish is simply to die for. I'd buy as much of this as you can afford.

    Tired of Grand Cru Blanc de Blancs yet ? Me neither, and this is one of the most exciting Champagnes we’ve brought in lately. Made entirely from Cote de Blancs Chardonnay and in a beautiful twisted glass bottle, it has rich, concentrated flavors of lemon, citrus blossom and guava with classic Cote de Blancs minerality and added depth from perfectly integrated toast. Don’t let the low, 4-gram dosage fool you, this is explosive in terms of taste, precision and length.
