Agraparts’ NV Brut Blanc de Blancs Terroirs F13 is – as usual for this cuvee – sourced roughly half-each from two vintages (here, complementary 2009 and 2008); grown entirely in Avize, Cramant, Oger and Oiry; vinified roughly one-quarter in demi-muid; and aged one year longer sur latte than their “7 Crus.” Effusively sweet and musky floral perfume suggesting heliotrope, narcissus, and lily-of-the-valley along with sourdough-like, pungent yeastiness and malted grain are allied in the nose to intimations of chalk dust, sea breeze and white peach. Lusciously juicy, fresh white peach and grapefruit are threaded on the polished palate with piquant peach kernel, pungent suggestions of sprouting grains, chalk, and salt. The sense of tension and vivacity here managing to harmonize with textural richness and caress is quite remarkable, especially considering that we’re only on the second rung of Agrapart’s portfolio. The finish engages imagination, salivary glands, and olfactors in equally strong measure, a suggestion of chewing peach fuzz and germinating sprouts compounding the sheer invigoration conveyed by this sensational value. (And bear in mind that this tasting note was made from a bottle that had only been disgorged a week before!) Plan to follow it for at least 4-5 years. - David Schildknecht

Lemon peel, white flowers, mint and white pepper are some of the signatures. Lifted and precise, the Terroirs shows the linear style that is typical of the Agrapart Champagnes. This release is a blend of equal parts 2012 and 2011 juice. For now, the presence of 50% 2011 vintage juice is not at all evident. This is another strong showing. Dosage is 5 grams/liter. Disgorged: June 2015.

A blend from grand cru vineyards in the top villages of the Côte des Blancs. This is Agrapart’s base wine, but it is an impressive base, with its extreme minerality that demands food, its lime, kiwi and textured fruit... A blend from grand cru vineyards in the top villages of the Côte des Blancs. This is Agrapart’s base wine, but it is an impressive base, with its extreme minerality that demands food, its lime, kiwi and textured fruit skin flavors. It finishes with great depth and complexity.

100% chardonnay from four grand cru villages. Straw color. Aromas of fresh yeast and bread come first with roasted nuts appearing after some time in glass. The wine starts with a delicate entry and has a touch more weight... 100% chardonnay from four grand cru villages. Straw color. Aromas of fresh yeast and bread come first with roasted nuts appearing after some time in glass. The wine starts with a delicate entry and has a touch more weight than "Les Sept Crus" but still retains the focused palate profile. Hints of red berry straddle the citrus flavors capped off by a firm nutty finish.
