- Item #: i_378268Bottle Size: 750MLWine Advocate: 93VINOUS WINE MEDIA 94 POINTS-"The 2012 Extra Brut Blanc de Blancs Grand Cru Les Chemins d'Avize is another powerful, deep wine that needs time in the glass to be at its best. In fact, the 2012 was not really fully expressive until it had been opened for about 24 hours. There is an inherent depth to the 2012 that just needs time to emerge. With air, the 2012 is broad and expansive, with the layers of fruit intensity and tension that are such signatures of Pierre and Sophie Larmandier's very best wines. What a gorgeous Champagne this is. Dosage is 2 grams per liter. Disgorged: March 2018."

This release is based on 2012, with 50% reserve wines from the previous edition, aged on cork. Rich, ample and creamy, the Reserve Oubliée is wonderfully expressive and inviting. Hints of dried pear, smoke, sage and mint add myriad shades of nuance. For the Reserve Oubliée, the wines spend a second year of aging on the lees prior to being bottled. Disgorged November 2017. Dosage is 4 grams per liter."
- Item #: i_322677Bottle Size: 750MLWine Spectator: 92ALLEN MEADOWS, BURGHOUND 94 POINTS - "This has what all of the best 2012s have, which is to say a brilliant texture. To be clear, it's not about density per se though that is part of it. Rather it's the way that the density interacts with the acidity such that the flavors deliver both richness and delineation, provided of course that the proper serving temperature is respected because if not the same beguiling texture just becomes heavy. The nose offers up the telltale Ramonet hint of mint along with lovely floral and spice nuances to the mostly white orchard fruit and lemon skin scents that are trimmed in just enough wood to notice. There is fine concentration to the vibrant, cool and ultra-pure medium-bodied flavors that possess that beguiling texture, all wrapped in a palate coating and strikingly long finish. The other seriously impressive aspect to this wine is that even though it will certainly reward at least 8 to 10 years of cellaring (and very likely more), it can be enjoyed now thanks to all of the acid-buffering dry extract. This is not a completely perfect wine as there is a hint of warmth that becomes more apparent if the serving temperature rises, but if that's the worst that can be said, that is already quite a compliment because few wines cannot be faulted in some way if one is really being picky. In sum, this is quite simply terrific."
