You know I love grower Champagne and place great store in terroir and the ground beneath it. I'm thrilled when they come together with an artisan like Pascal Agrapart and his expressive wines. So much so that it is my house Champagne and maybe yours, too. Pascal works naturally by hand and plough horse (and Mini Cooper!) in little Avize and other cru villages in the chalky Cote des Blancs. Prize territory for chardonnay. This barrel-fermented Terroirs, coming entirely from grand cru sites, is a rich and complex wine equaling the big guy's tete de cuvee at three times the price. Amazing that one grower, so small and meticulous, can make such a beautiful Champagne. Each one is honest and pure, earthy and sophisticated, and a rare taste of handcrafted Champagne. Agrapart is a producer of remarkable value. Every shipment sells out quickly!

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.

This is very complex and layered for a NV with bread dough, sliced cooked apples, minerals and steel. Full body. Tight and compact. Nicely framed and constructed. May 2019 lot. Drink now.

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.
