(NV Varnier-Fanniere Champagne Grand Cru Cuvée St-Denis) Light yellow color with abundant mousse; pear cream, apple cream, leesy nose; pear cream, apple cream, leesy, mineral palate; medium-plus finish 90+ points
(NV Varnier-Fannière "Cuvée Saint-Denis" Brut) ($75.00) A superb rendition of one of the 2-3 BEST VALUES in this portfolio. Again incisive yet generous, crabapple blossom and wisteria. The kind of wine that makes you want to propose marriage – even if you’re married already! As always from the Clos du Grand Pere in Avize, 65-year-old vines; a terroir lover’s dream. 35% ’05, 65% ’06, disgorged 11/10.
(NV Varnier-Fanniere Cuvee St. Denis) This was somewhat of a two-faced wine. The nose smelled dirty and not too pleasant but the palate had lovely lime and creamy flavors with lovely purity. Good but I won't be going back for seconds.
(NV Varnier-Fanniere Champagne Grand Cru Cuvée St-Denis) Honeyed nose; tart citrus palate with honeyed edge; short finish
