Grand Vintage 2011
The quintessence of Grand Cru at VARNIER-FANNIERE. 1996, 1999, 2004, 2005, 2006, 2008, 2009… Only exceptional years are vintage. Exercise of style of our know-how, each vintage sublimates and exalts the generosity of an exceptional harvest. Each bottle of Grand Vintage Champagne has been produced with our oldest plots, whose grapes have maximum aromatic potential. The pale gold color with silvery reflections is highlighted by a beautiful carpet of moss. It is a mature nose. The praline and dry herbs give way to floral notes.
After an attack of remarkable freshness, the mouth offers a beautiful amplitude which increases as the tasting progresses. The finish is long and marked by notes of hazelnuts.
This Grand Vintage 2011 is a fine example of Chardonnay from which we have been able to wait for maturity.
