Ratings and Tasting Notes:
JS96 This has an exceptionally detailed nose with fresh crushed stones, all shades of hazelnut, lemon blossom and grapefruit, as well as dried flowers. The palate has exceptionally fresh and piercing acidity with very fresh and frisky lemons, white nectarines and grapefruit, as well as an attractive, fresh and zesty finish. So intense. Drink or hold. RP95+ Disgorged in May 2019 with three grams per liter dosage after tirage under natural cork, the 2013 Extra-Brut Blanc de Blancs Grand Cru Avizoise is showing beautifully, unwinding in the glass with notes of citrus oil, English walnuts, crisp green apple, freshly baked bread and wet stones. Medium to full-bodied, elegantly enveloping but incisive, it's deep and concentrated, with a racy spine of acidity and a vinous but tightly wound profile. If the 2013 is a little more acid-driven than the 2012, it's also finer-boned and a touch less muscular, rendering it marginally more open out of the gates. AG94 All of the natural power and breath of Avize come through in the 2013 Extra Brut Blanc de Blancs Grand Cru L¡¦Avizoise. Graphite, crushed rocks and dried flowers are woven throughout a core of rich, super-expressive Chardonnay fruit. The 2013 is ample, savory and intensely mineral, but it will be even better in another few years, once all the elements have time to fully meld together. The 2013 is such a gorgeous and expressive Champagne. These 50+ year-old vines in the Les Robards and La Voie d¡¦Epernay confer real depth and pedigree. Dosage: 5 gr/L. Disgorged: May, 2019.
