Jacquesson, Avize-Champ Caïn Récolte Extra Brut 2005
The terroir of Avize is so all-consuming that you can literally smell the tidal wave of surging salt minerality coming. It’s a salty sea breeze, a steamy whiff of bath salts that heralds an intricately crystalline structure. There are few 2005 Champagnes that will live as long as this. Jacquesson has conjured one of the finest.
