Jacquesson Avize Grand Cru Champ Cain Brut, Champagne, France, 2002
Bottle Size: 75cl
Region: France: Champagne
Grape Variety: Chardonnay
The 2002 Brut Avize – Champ Cain comes across as a bit more linear and focused than the Dizy. It shows gorgeous energy in its ripe, varietal Chardonnay fruit, graphite, pencil shavings and spices. This subtle, impeccable mid-weight Champagne should drink well for another handful of years. It is the most understated of the 2002 lieu-dits. Dosage is 2 grams per liter. Tasting Date: December 2011. 94 points. Antonio Galloni. Vinous.
