Franck Bonville, Brut Prestige Blanc de Blancs Grand Cru Avize

Premier Wine Company, Richmond CA.

100% Chardonnay from estate grand cru vineyards in Avize. 50 / 50 blend of 2011 and 2012 vintages. Aging: 36 months. Disgorged March 2016. Dosage: 6.67 g/l.

White-gold.  The creamy richness of ’12 subdues the piney-ness of ’11.  Beguilding for the Prestige, blending apple-flesh aromas, maldon salt, botanical herbs and Avize’s incisive chalk.  Now.
