Description

“Marguet’s 2012 Avize & Cramant Grand Cru is pure Chardonnay fermented in oak and bottled in July 2013 (total production: 1,848 bottles). The yellow-golden colored, low sulfured wine offers a pure, fresh and chalky/limestone bouquet with ripe white fruits and iodine flavors. Mouthfilling yet pure, bone dry and fresh, with great finesse and vitality, this is a lean, pretty linear yet intense and expressive Blanc de Blancs with remarkable grip (perhaps still a bit challenging in its austerity) and lingering salinity. The 2012 is a highly stimulating aperitif, but it should be even greater with seafood and raw saltwater fish as well as poultry with morels or porcini in a cream sauce… The wine was disgorged with zero dosage in May 2017. Tasted May 2018.” 92 Stephan Reinhardt for the 2013, NOT THE 2014 OFFERED HERE
