Champagne Agrapart Terroirs Blanc De Blancs Brut Grand Cru NV
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 old, and Agrapart uses 50% reserve wine and 50% barrel for this cuvée. The wine spends up to 48 months on lees and dosage is limited to 5g/l. Disgorgement is carried out by hand and to order, roughly 2 months before collection.
Emblematic of the lacy depth and purity that Pascal Agrapart channels into all his wines, it is a wonderfully textured, pulpy and vibrant study of Côtes des Blancs greatness. It is also unbelievably delicious.
"Sings with the freshness of lemon and grapefruit, tangy grapefruit zest definition and notes of fresh almonds. Deeply embedded in grand cru chalk soils, it's soft, salty, and frothy, creamy in texture and lingering with great length and poise. A beautifully crafted and terroir-infused cuvée. 95 points."-- Tyson Stelzer, The Champagne Guide 2016-2017.
