Agrapart & Fils, Champagne Blanc de Blancs Grand Cru 'Terroirs' NV
Stupendous Champagne that really makes you sit up and pay attention. Driving acidity, crazy depth. Really vinous in style and demands some food alongside! 'Terroirs' is bottled as Extra Brut, with all fruit coming from the Grand Cru villages of Avize, Oger, Cramant and Oiry.
Agrapart & Fils
Agrapart have become well established at the pointy end of Grower Champagne enthusiasts wish lists. They are based in the Grand Cru village of Avize, within the Côte des Blancs. This is prime Chardonnay territory. The farming here centres on the promotion of organic soil health, and they add organic compost to the ploughed soil each year to aid productivity and soil nutrient balance. This organic approach carries over to the winemaking. The wines are unfined and unfiltered, as well as being riddled by hand, an extremely labour intensive approach.
