Review:
Fermented in stainless steel with full malolactic fermentation, Glavier's NV Extra-Brut Blanc de Blancs Grand Cru Gensis is based on the 2013 vintage, complemented by wines from a perpetual reserve started in 2004, and this bottle was disgorged in November 2016. Offering up a generous bouquet of yellow orchard fruit, peach, yeast extract and hazelnuts, it's full-bodied, fleshy and vinous, with a frothy mousse, ripe balancing acids and an open-knit, expressive profile. This is a boisterous, charming Blanc de Blancs
