It shows stunning depth power and richness all while retaining tons of freshness and minerality. Layers of flavor saturate the palate in this moving vivid Champagne. The 2005 Venus may be the very best Champagne I have ever tasted from Agrapart. Venus is made from a tiny 0.3 hectare parcel in La Fosse originally planted in 1959. This vineyard has never been worked mechanically. Today it is farmed by hand and with the help of Venus the horst for which the wine is named. The 2005 was fermented in 600-liter barrels and bottled with no dosage. Disgorged July 2011. Anticipated maturity: 2013-2025. -Antonio Galloni
