NV Varnier Fanniere Brut Grand Cru, Côte des Blancs, Avize

 

-Chardonnay (100%)

-Soil: belemnite chalk (apparently filled with highly prized cuttlefish fossil deposits, said to add to the “terroir” of the champagne)

-Dosage 10g/L

-Aged for 3 years in bottle, blend of 3 harvests

Tastes like a green apple injected with rocket fuel made of condensed, carbonated minerals, in a good way.
