Varnier Fanniere Brut Grand Cru NV

Member Review by zufrieden:

The Varnier-Fanniere Grand Cru Champagne has excellent and persistent effervescence with a fairly prominent brioche nose. On the palate, the wine continues with brioche and dark melba toast notes with just a touch of sweet vanilla. There is a slight bitterness on the finish that detracts slightly from an otherwise pleasant experience. Deeper, but less elegant than some. 90 points.

Champagne Varnier-Fannière:
The FANNIERE Family started growing grapes in 1860. At this time, wine growers were selling all there grapes to the Champagne négociant house because they did not (and still do not) have enough vineyards of their own to produce the quantity of wine they needed to sell all around the world. The grapes from the most famous villages (Grand Cru) like Avize were the most sought after and were often used to produce the Cuvees de Prestiges.

Has plenty of personality. Light-weight and lively, featuring apple, juniper and vanilla notes. Lingers lazily on the finish, with an aftertaste of vanilla and hazelnut. Drink now.

Smoky minerals are found in the nose of the non-vintage Brut (disg. date 10/13/2004). This focused, slightly lactic Champagne is fresh, linear, and straightforward.

Exotic aromas of lavender and sandalwood in this distinctive, elegant Champagne. Itandrsquo;s racy and tightly wound at this stage, so give it a few months or a year in the bottle. Drink now through 2005.
