a staff fave! a delicious and impressive half bottle of racy blanc de blancs.

Nöel and Magali Bazin farm roughly 3 hectares (divided into 25 micro parcels) in the Montagne de Reims, with primary holdings in the Premier Cru Village of Villers-Marmery. The Bazin's first vintage was in 1999. This is a Chardonnay-focused estate in the heart of Pinot Noir-land, as such the wines are dense yet compact; Chardonnay with attitude and weight. Serious grower bubbles without the serious price. Just 1500 cases produced annually.

 65% 2020, 35% solera (reserve vintages - some of which is kept in barrels to add roundness)

Up to 50 year old vines with majority of fruit from Premier Cru Villers-Marmery.
