Champagne Franck Bonville Pur Avize 2012
Part of the 2012 Pur Terroir series, Pur Avize is the ultimate expression of the terroir of this Grand Cru village.
Chardonnay grapes from 3 plots are chosen to provide a balance of the characteristics produced by different soil types with more or less concentration of chalk. The cuvée is tiraged under natural cork sealed with a staple and then hand disgorged.
Only 2500 bottles were produced from this vintage.
Avize Grand Cru
"The nose is lightly closed at first. Then, it opens by the aeration and gives delicious aromas of fresh cut pineapple, pear and mango. The mouth is generous, ample and complex. We can feel a very pleasant freshness and also a beautiful creamy texture. That is a Champagne from Avize for sure: elegant and generous, it lasts long in mouth. Its natural minerality is always very significant."
Share with friends as an aperitif, or pair with lightly grilled mahi mahi or cod.
