Champagne Varnier-Fannière Brut Grand Cru Cuvée St Denis
The weight of this old vine parcel in Avize comes through in the NV Brut Grand Cru Cuvee St. Denis. A wine of considerable depth and richness, the Cuvee St. Denis wraps around the palate with serious power. Dried flowers, nectarines, peaches and a hint of nutmeg are some of the many notes that take shape in the glass. A round, creamy finish supported by insistent veins of minerality rounds things out in style. The Cuvee St. Denis is 100% Chardonnay, 65% 2007 and 35% 2006, from 70+ year-old vines in Avize. Disgorgement date: May 16, 2012.
