Agrapart is one of finest producers of biodynamic Champagne and has been for over a decade. Medium bodied, but straying to the fuller side. Intense, fresh and loaded with energy. Sweet limes, lemon zest, honey, grilled nuts and subtle spice. Super vigorous, but very elegant. Textural palate, and real drive. I’d like to see this with a few years of bottle age. Love it!
Agrapart’s Grand Cru Terroirs Blanc de Blancs NV sheds a wonderful spotlight on this producer. Unlike most prestige cuvées, Terroirs is produced from only great sites and is 100% grand cru. The fruit comes from four villages in the Côte des Blancs: Avize, Cramant, Oger, and Oiry. The vines average 40 years of age, and Agrapart uses between 50-60% reserve wine. After a natural fermentation, half of the wine is matured in large format, neutral oak and then spends up to 48 months on lees. Dosage is limited to 5g/l and disgorgement is carried out by hand. These standards (like the viticulture) are far higher than pretty much all of the so called ‘prestige cuvees’, making this wine a bargain. Emblematic of the lacy depth and purity that Pascal Agrapart’s vineyard and cellar work channels into all his wines, this is a wonderfully textured, pulpy and vibrant study of Côtes des Blancs terroir. It is also utterly delicious!
