alfred-gratien-grand-cru-blanc-de-blancs-2007Alfred Gratien Grand Cru Blanc de Blancs Brut 2007, Champagne, AUD $109-$133

A great chardonnay Champagne, its complexity enhanced by barrel fermentation. Moderate dosage and high, non-malolactic acidity are other features. Tremendously complex roasted hazelnut, fresh bread and cashew nuances, and lively appley acidity. Character plus. (Cork)
