Impressive fizz

Georges Vesselle Grand Cru à Bouzy Brut NV, Champagne, AUD $89

From a family-run winery which uses only grapes from its own 17-hectare estate in the Bouzy grand cru, this is an impressive, appetising Champagne. Made from 90% pinot noir and 10% chardonnay, it’s full-bodied, crisp, taut and nervy on the palate, finishing pleasantly clean and dry. (Cork)
