Franck Bonville, Brut Blanc de Blancs Millésimé Grand Cru Avize 1996


Imported by Latitude Wines, Danville CA.

Estate fruit Chardonnay from grand cru vineyards in Avize, Oger and Cramant.

Twenty years on.

Mid-gold.  Endomorphic toastiness, just a touch of caramel and the palate shows key-lime, moonglow pear, hyssop and woodruff with steel and chill.  Dramatic acidity and the finish is articulated in spicy graphite.  Now.
