Varnier-Fanniere Brut Grand Cru NV (750ML)
Critic Scores, Reviews & Descriptions
93 AG / 90 WE
The NV Brut Grand Cru is 100% Chardonnay from Avize, Oger and Cramant. Bright and sizzling in the glass, the Grand Cru captures the essence of the Cotes des Blancs in its chiseled personality. Citrus, floral, slate, and mineral notes lend vibrancy throughout. The 10 grams of dosage are not at all evident. Impressive. Disgorged: May 10, 2021.
This crisp, fruity wine is made exclusively from Chardonnay in Varnier Fannière's Côte des Blancs vineyards. It has a citrus flavor, with touches of green plum and quince, and a tight, mineral character. Ideally, this should be aged for a year, but it is drinkable now. - Roger Voss
