Why You’ll Love It?
Agrapart is an outstanding biodynamic producer located in the Côtes des Blancs. The “Terroirs” cuvée is produced from only 100% Grand Cru vineyards Oger, Cramant, Oiry and Avize with vines averaging 40 years old. 50% reserve wines are used and the other 50% from barrels. The wine spends up to 4 years on leeds with a maximum dosage of 5g/L. The wines are typically bottled around the full moon of May, with no fining, no filtration and no cold stabilisation. Disgorgement is carried out to order around 2 months before collection. This standard of Champagne making is normally only practiced by the top Champagne Houses making this Champagne undeniably great value.
"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
