Review:
Denis Varnier's NV Brut Cuvée St. Denis is an exceptional wine endowed with superb depth, crystalline purity and fabulous overall balance. Lemon oil, pastry, white flowers and crushed rocks all literally jump out of the glass in this beautifully expressive Champagne. The St. Denis remains bright, floral and perfumed throughout, showing a slightly brighter side of Chardonnay than the Jean Fannière. The Cuvée St. Denis, from a parcel with 70+ year old vines in Avize, is stunning today. This release is equal parts 2009 and 2008 vintages, disgorged in May 2013.
