A single 0.7ha plot in Avize, this has very assertive citrus and dried peach edge with strong chalky minerals. Extremely vibrant. The palate has richness of fruit with white peach and apricot flavors. Sturdy structure supports ripe and concentrated fruit. Grape maturity is expressed at an elite level here – a gift of the terroir and its interpreters. The acidity is striking, driving a deep, sorbet-like finish. Drink now.

The 2010 Extra Brut Blanc de Blancs Grand Cru Les Chemins d'Avize bristles with a real sense of energy. Bright, focused and linear, the 2010 races across the palate with a bevy of lemon peel, grapefruit, mint and white pepper. The flavors are precise and lifted in a finely sculpted, crystalline Champagne that impresses with its exceptional balance. The Chemins d'Avize is a blend of fruit from the Chemin de Plivot and Chemin de Flavigny lieux-dits, which were previously used in the Longitude, fermented and aged in a combination of neutral barriques and foudres. Dosage is 2 grams/liter. Disgorged: November 2014.

Full-bodied and generously creamy-textured, this is a highly elegant and perfectly balanced Blanc de Blancs that is rather rich than ascetic (in case you fear the Extra-Brut), and reveals a persistent mineral structure and refreshing purity in the finish. Although the Chemins is still bloody young, it drinks wonderfully today, but can (or should) age for several years to gain even more delicacy and complexity. - Stephan Reinhardt
