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!

The NV Extra Brut Blanc de Blancs Grand Cru Terroirs is a very pretty wine among the entry-level selections in this range. Bright and vibrant in the glass, the Terroirs bristles with energy, the blend of fruit from sites in Avize, Oger, Cramant and Oiry works so well here. Citrus, white flowers, white pepper and crushed rocks add a super appealing upper register. This release is a blend of equal parts 2016 and 2015, with about 25% of the wine done in neutral oak. Dosage is 5 grams per liter. Best of all, the Terroirs is a superb value. Disgorged: April, 2020.
