Ratings and Tasting Notes:
(JS=96) Very pure and fragrant, with attractive aromas of bread and fresh hazelnuts, cashew nuts, light lemons and grapefruit. The palate has a scintillatingly pure, grapefruit and dry-lemon core, and a chalky, fresh-pear and lime finish. Superb freshness! A very restrained blend of four Grand Cru parcels of 20 to 50-year-old vines and a blend of 2013 (60 per cent) and 2014 (40 per cent). Drink or hold. (RP=94) Disgorged in April 2019 with four grams per liter dosage, Agrapart's NV Extra Brut Blanc de Blancs Grand Cru Terroirs is a blend of 40% 2015 and 60% 2014 and derives from old vines that are around 50 or 60 years old. Mingling notes of citrus oil and white flowers with hints of crushed chalk and rock salt, it's medium to full-bodied, racy and incisive, with a satiny attack that segues into a ripe and vinous but chalky, tight-knit core. (AG=92) The NV Extra Brut Blanc de Blancs Grand Cru Terroirs is vibrant and finely sculpted, with tons of citrus and mineral-infused nuances that open up effortlessly in the glass. Light on its feet, tense and wiry, the Terroirs is a great example of the Agrapart house style. A whole range of saline-infused notes bring out the chiseled electricity of Chardonnay from Avize, Oger, Cramant and Oiry, all Grand Cru villages. Dosage: 5 gr/L. Disgorged: May, 2019.
