“From the villages of Avize, Cramant, Le Mesnil-sur-Oger and Vertus, the base here is 2012. With more chalk influence than latitude, this is powerful and linear. It has superb focus and depth, and the flavors run in a citrus spectrum, with some subtle baking spices, too. Compelling tension and drive. Drink now.”
