This delicious 100% Chardonnay Champagne is produced by students at the Avize School of Winegrowing (which opened its doors in 1927) with guidance from the school's cellar masters under the co-op name, 'Sanger'. Fermented in stainless steel tanks, aged for 40 months on the lees and then disgorged six months before release with a dosage of six grams per liter, the final wine is a seamless blend of crisp Chardonnay character with green apple, lemon-lime citrus and Bosc and Asian pear flavors on the medium-bodied palate. The finish is clean, fresh and dry, ending with classic Côte des Blancs chalky minerality. Champagne Sanger calls this wine, "Terroir Natal" in reference to the fact that the grapes are from the 'native land' of Avize, a Grand Cru Village where the co-op and winemaking school were founded. The cuvée also includes grapes from two other Grand Cru villages in the Côte des Blancs: Cramant and Le Mesnil Sur Oger. This is truly a beautiful wine made by some extremely talented students learning to master their craft in the art of Champagne!
