Tasting Notes

From a duo of Avize Grand Cru parcels, this has a stunning sense of purity about it and is truly driven by terroir with gentle complexity to the élevage. The lemon, grapefruit, and yellow-nectarine fruits are prevalent and pure on both the nose and palate, while other aromas come along in the chalky, lightly spicy zone. The palate has flawless build and drive and the acidity is assertive but wrapped in concentrated citrus flavors and underpinned with fine, smooth phenolics. Fruit flavors run super deep into the finish, which is wrapped in a smooth build of warm, toasted hazelnuts and super-pure chalky notes. This is brilliant now, but age it through to 2025 to enhance the savory richer side of this superb Champagne.
