Jacquesson Avize Grand Cru Champ Cain Brut, Champagne, France, 2004
Bottle Size: 75cl
Region: France: Champagne
Grape Variety: Chardonnay
The 2004 Avize-Champ Gain comes across as intense and vertical in style, with plenty of mineral and savory notes pushed forward. With time in the glass, the fruit emerges, but only with great reluctance. Like all the 2004s, the Avize-Champ Gain has gone into a shell from which it will eventually emerge, but its going to take a few years. Date Tasted: March 2015. 95 points. Antonio Galloni. Vinous.
