The NV Brut 7 Crus is an attractive, easygoing wine that will drink well upon release. A touch of Pinot softens the edges nicely, giving this Chardonnay-base Champagne tons of accessibility. Lemon confit, chamomile, mint and white pepper all open in the glass, but it is the wine's textural feel that makes the 7 Crus so rewarding to taste and drink today. This release is equal parts 2017 and 2016, from parcels in Avize, Oger, Oiry, Cramant, Avenay Val d’Or, Bergères les Vertus and Mardeuil. About 25% of the wine was done in neutral oak, the rest in cask. Dosage is 7 grams per liter. Disgorged: April, 2020. (Antonio Galloni, Vinous, November 2020)

Melon and tarragon. Very herbal with some candle wax to seal the deal.

Valentine's bubbles. Blanc de Blancs 7 crus Avize from 7 top vineyards. Meyer Lemon, almonds, keffir lime, meringue. Beautiful backbone of acidity. Would bottle age exquisitely. Character: Cate Blanchett in Lord of the Rings evanescent, wise & layered...with appropriate angularity.

What a delight! White peach, Meyer lemon, and chalk. I'm liking what the 10% Pinot noir does to this former Blanc de blancs.

Never a bad time to open up les 7. One of the best values in grower champers.
