Yes, we are featuring another astonishing Champagne sourced from a walled Côte de Blancs vineyard. This Varnier Fanniere expression is from a single parcel with 77-year-old vines called "Clos du Grand Père" located next to the viticultrual school in Avize. It is situated on flatter land that is endowed with a particular deep bed of chalk. This “St. Denis” is the best bottle of Varnier-Fanniere we have ever had, and importer Terry Theise calls it the single greatest value in his extensive portfolio. Peter Liem of Champagneguide.net, writes: “This edition is 60 percent 2009 and 40 percent 2008, and it seems to combine the best of both vintages: there’s a rich body and depth that’s very 2009, but this is also underlined by tense acidity and a sleek, energetic structure. Above all, it’s infused by an intense chalkiness, which contributes to its overall sense of refinement and finesse. Last tasted: 3/14. 2 ½ Stars.”
