Larmandier-Bernier Extra Brut Blanc de Blancs Les Chemins d'Avize Grand Cru 2011 (750ML)
95 Points, Stephan Reinhardt, Robert Parker Wine Advocate: "The 2011 Les Chemins d'Avize Blanc de Blancs Grand Cru Extra Brut is from a southeast-facing vineyard and offers a deep, fresh, very elegant and flinty bouquet with pure mineral and floral aromas along with citrus, herbs and perfectly ripe, concentrated fruit notes. On the palate, this is a highly finessed and expressive Champagne from Avize. The wine has perfectly ripe, lush and concentrated fruit, and its finish is terribly long and intense but also clear, precise, fresh and very well structured. This is a great Champagne from Avize. Disgorged in September 2017; tasted in April 2018."
93 Points, Antonio Galloni, Vinous: "The 2011 Extra Brut Blanc de Blancs Les Chemins d'Avize Grand Cru is another super-impressive wine from Pierre and Sophie Larmandier. Powerful, ample and massively structured, the Chemins d'Avize will please readers who enjoy bold, vinous Champagnes. At times, the Chemins d'Avize feels like a Pinot based Champagne in its phenolic intensity and vertical, imposing feel. Hints of preserved lemon, apricot, mint and light honey build in this super-expressive, inviting Champagne. The Chemins d'Avize is a blend of Chemin de Plivot and Chemin de Flavigny, both of which were previously used for the Longitude. Disgorged: January 2017. Dosage is 2 grams per liter."
