Franck Bonville, Brut Extra Blanc de Blancs Grand Cru Avize Non Vintage

Franck Bonville Extra NV

Latitude Wines, Danville CA.

2006 vintage.  Dosage: 2.5 g/l.  100% estate vines in Avize with four years on the lees.  100% malo.

White gold.  Rusk, veal stock and lead pencil; more high-wire than the sweeter ’02.  As always, this is less about the fruit and more about the things that pull on the fruit.  Clinging tertiary finish.  Now.
