Franck Bonville, Brut Blanc de Blancs Grand Cru Avize 1996

bonville-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.
