Agrapart, Terroirs Extra Brut 750ml NVFrance, Champagne
Grape grower – winemaker (does not purchase grapes) in Avize, Côte des Blancs. Their 12 hectares vineyard is mainly spread out in Grand Cru villages planted with Chardonnay, a white grape picked and pressed with great care by them. Their winegrower’s approach is natural.
Their vineyard soils have always been maintained through ploughing and every year they add compost made from local ingredients to vineyard. The organic life of the soil assures the health and productivity of the vineyard. Their Champagne wine are neither fined nor filtered. They are bottles at the domain and are hand riddled.
An Extra Brut champagne Blanc de Blancs Grand Cru. The encounter of their Grand Crus. A blend of 2 vintages from specifically chosen vineyard blocks in Avize, Oger, Cramant and Oiry, all planted with Chardonnay. Disgorged 2 months before the release date and dosage limited at 5 grams of sugar per liter.
'From four grands crus, the NV Blanc de Blancs Grand Cru Extra Brut Terroirs assembles 40% of 2014 with 60% of reserve wines, half of which was aged in barrels for six months. The citrus colored wine has a bright and aromatic yet precise and refined bouquet of white fruits, with citrus notes and very fine raisins. Very delicate and filigreed on the palate, this is a highly refined yet complex, chalky/mineral and refreshing Champagne with a lovely mineral finish and remarkable tension. This is a very pure and elegant Blanc de Blancs with a tangy finish. Disgorged in February 2018 with a dosage of fives grams per liter.' – Stephen Reinhardt, Wine Advocate, 91/100
