Franck Bonville, Brut Blanc de Blancs Millésimé Grand Cru Avize 2008

Premier Wine Company, Richmond CA.

Ten years on.

White-gold.  Generous but crisply outlined and all the flavors drape proportionately.  Sakiz, pencil lead and the orchid aromas of a great baozhong tea.  Gleaming fruit-salt interplay on the palate.  The finish is like a mine, drilled deep into Avize terroir, poised to go even deeper.  Now – 2028+.
