NV Agrapart & Fils - Les 7 Crus (90 pts) @beauneimports @polanerselections · 🙋‍♂️ What was the last Champagne you tasted❓· 🗓1️⃣4️⃣ Wine Advent Calendar· This wine was the selected to show an affordable grower champagne that is mineral driven· ℹ️ This Champagne comes from Avize in the Côte des Blancs. Pascal Agrapart is a grower Producer and is committed to organic Viticulture at his family's Domaine. Vine age is among the oldest in the Côte des Blancs. The wine is a mix of 90% Chardonnay and 10% Pinot Noir from 1er and Grand Cru vineyards (from 7 villages surrounding Avize)· 👁 Medium lemon color· 👃 Medium+ intensity on the nose. Aromas of lemon, lemon curd, quince, flint, wet rock, yeast, baked bread, and cheese rind· 👄 The wine is dry, high acidity, fine persistent bubbles, medium alcohol, and medium body. Palate has a creamy texture. A medium length finish of lemon zest and flint· 🔔 This wine is $48. The best way for me to describe this wine is a high end Chablis 1er Cru with bubbles. The palate has good weight due to the addition of 10% Pinot Noir to round it out a bit. There are so many good Grower Champagne NV bottlings out there, but this is one the best values. This will improve in the cellar as well.
