This explosive, ripe wine is part of a trilogy that the producer has made from three of the greatest villages in Champagne. This tense, mineral-driven wine is rich with white fruits. It is still young, so wait until 2020. *Cellar Selection* (RV)
Sourced from three specific vineyards in Avize (Les Chapelles, Les Avats and Les Maladries), the 2012 Blanc de Blancs Grand Cru Pur Avize is a bright colored Côte des Blancs with a terrific deep and aromatic bouquet of smooth chalk, juicy tropical fruit and lemon notes. Lush and refined on the palate, this is a light, fresh yet complex, highly elegant and perfectly balanced Chardonnay with juicy fruit, delicately creamy texture and a pure, vitalizing finish with lingering pineapple and brioche flavors. This is a picture-book aperitif Champagne from Avize! Picked and pressed on September 22nd, bottled in April 2013, aged under cork and disgorged as Extra Brut with just two grams of dosage per liter in April 2018. This frisky, lighthearted and stimulating 2012 already drinks beautifully but can be cellared for at least 5 to 6 years. Tasted July 2018. (SR)
