Jacquesson Avize Brut Grand Cru 2000
Vintage from Champagne, France
Thanks to the meticulous viticultural methods of the House, which focus on producing a moderate quantity of bunches that are well
ventilated, our grapes were able to ripen in optimal conditions and in Avize, picking began on 19th September. The quality of the crop
was outstanding and the musts measured around 10 degrees of potential alcohol combined with a tartaric acid content of around 8 gr/l.
"The 2000 Brut Avize Grand Cru reveals sweet, open aromatics that lead to a generous core of ripe fruit that blossoms on the palate with highly perfumed, almost candied qualities. This rich, round wine possesses superb energy and length. While the 2000 doesn’t quite have the focus of the finest vintages of this wine, it is fairly accessible at this stage. The 2000 Brut Avize Grand Cru is 100% Chardonnay sourced from the Champ Gain, La Fosse and Nemery vineyards. This is Lot AV00.4, disgorged in the 1st quarter of 2008. Simply put, this is a gorgeous wine. "
The Wine Advocate
"A distinctly apple suffused nose and they dominate the aromatic profile at present while leading to crisp, racy and tangy flavors that are supported by an almost foamy effervescence as well as a sappy, even mouth coating and toasty finish. This is maturing but not quite ready and is quite stylish."
"Bright yellow-gold. Smoky pear, orange and floral aromas are complicated by anise and wet stones. Pure, sharply focused and juicy, with spicy citrus and pit fruit flavors complicated by slow-building smokiness. The finish features softer melon and poached pear qualities and leaves a dusty, smoky trail of minerals behind. Very pretty Champagne. "

Learn About Champagne
Champagne is both a region and a method. The wines come from the northernmost vineyards in France and the name conjures an image like no other can. An 18th Century Benedictine monk named Dom Perignon is said to be the first to blend both varietals and vintages, making good wines not only great, but also special and unique to their winemaker. Today, nearly 75% of Champagne...
