Based half-each on vintages 2010 and 2009, and with 10% Pinot Noir “smuggled in,” Agrapart’s NV Brut Blanc De Blancs 7 Crus E13 – named for the seven Cote des Blancs villages from which it is sourced, and in this instance disgorged in May, 2013 – displays uncommon delicacy, buoyancy, tension and nuance for an “intro-level” cuvee, and that uncannily combined with a sense of richness and purity to its white peach and grapefruit. Almond and pistachio cream lend allure; chalk and salt along with piquancy of peach kernel and toasted pumpkin seed impart interest, invigoration and saliva-inducement to an effusively juicy, succulent and refreshingly sustained finish. Seven grams of residual sugar, incidentally, is fairly high by estate standards but perfectly complements this wine’s forward fruit without engendering any sense of outright sweetness. This exceptional value in Champagne should remain irresistible for at least the next couple of years, and I shall be anxious to experience what happens further down the pike as I revisit the bottles I recently purchased (because older “intro-level” bottles are not usually something that growers – or, for that matter, most self-styled wine collectors – can lay their hands on to pour for you).

Spiced with licorice snap pickled ginger and clove this is firm and focused with flavors of green apple white peach and lemon peel. The mineral undercurrent pushes through on the finish. Drink now through 2018. -AN

Intense incisive aromas of candied citrus fruits white flowers spices and minerals with gentle smokiness and a hint of anise. Juicy and precise on the palate offering very good depth to its tangy lemon orange and green apple flavors. Shows impressive power on the long zesty finish but carries no excess weight. I really like this Champagne's tension and focus. This year's bottling does not indicate "Blanc de Blancs" but it is 100% chardonnay. --- Josh Raynolds

The NV Brut Blanc de Blancs Premier Cru 7 Crus is a lovely, introductory-level Champagne from Agrapart. Bright and focused, but also with more than enough mid-palate richness to be accessible upon release, the 7 Crus is super-expressive today. The inclusion of 10% Pinot Noir a few years back has changed the 7 Crus in a meaningful way in making the wine more accessible in its youth. The creamy, spiced finish is hugely appealing, but there is a lot to like here, including the wine's overall balance. This release is a blend of equal parts 2013 and 2012. The seven villages in the blend are Avize, Oger, Oiry, Cramant, Avenay Val d’Or, Bergères les Vertus and Mardeuil. Dosage is 7 grams/liter. Disgorged: June 2015.

Complex, well-settled nose and lightly soft on the finish but with lots of interest on the way. Grapefruit peel on the finish after much throatwarming. 17/20
