CRITICAL ACCLAIM


Wine Enthusiast - "One of a series of single-vineyard wines, this 100% Chardonnay comes from the Côte des Blancs. The strong minerality of the Champagne is richly balanced by the concentrated citrus and toast flavors. Acidity has been softened and beautifully integrated by the wine's maturity. Drink now. "


Vinous - "The 2009 Extra-Brut Avize Champ Gain captures an intriguing combination of the richness of the year and the clean mineral inflections that are such signatures of Avize. All the elements are turned up a few notches. Petrol apricot dried flowers orchard fruit orange confit honey and marzipan all develop in the glass. Even with all of its intensity the 2009 retains striking translucence. It's a big wine but there is plenty of complexity too. Disgorged May 2019. Dosage is 1.5 grams per liter."


Robert Parker's Wine Advocate - "Disgorged in May 2019 with 1.5 grams per liter dosage the 2009 Extra-Brut Grand Cru Avize - Champ Caïn is showing beautifully wafting from the glass with aromas of pear blanched almonds freshly baked bread and mandarin. Medium to full-bodied pillowy and precise it's elegant and refined with a pinpoint mousse discreet depth at the core and a long chalky finish. Beautifully balanced with minimal dosage it shows the results the Jacquesson brothers' viticulture were already delivering over a decade ago."


John Gilman - "As I mentioned last year in my note on the 2008 vintage of this bottling the single vineyard bottling of Champ Caïn in Avize hails from a lieu à dit located at the bottom of the slope in this commune with a due south exposition. Jacquesson owns 1.3 hectares of vines here that were planted in 1962. The 2009 vintage was barrel-fermented and the vins clairs were aged in casks prior to being bottled for second fermentation it was disgorged in May of 2019 after nine-plus years of aging sur latte and was finished this year with a dosage of 1.5 grams per liter. The bouquet is deep complex and shows the sunny side of this vintage wafting from the glass in a complex blend of apple fresh-baked bread a touch of hazelnut just a hint of tangerine a beautiful base of chalky soil tones white flowers and a bit of buttery oak. On the palate the wine is deep full-bodied focused and complex with a superb core of fruit fine mineral drive elegant mousse and a long poised and beautifully balanced finish that is quite a bit more open than the 2008 was at a similar stage of evolution a year ago. This is excellent. (Drink between 2020-2045)"
