Strong and soft spoken, Pascal Agrapart has been working like this since 1984, well before today’s grower Champagne boom. Peter Liem compares his reputation for outstanding Côtes des Blancs wines to that of Anselme Selosse. Farming is intended to sync with natural cycles, and only indigenous yeast is used, capitalizing again on each plot’s unique terroir.

The house is based in Avize, in the Côtes des Blancs, and unsurprisingly focuses on Chardonnay. Agrapart creates terroir-driven and focused wines of great minerality and complexity, from plots chosen specifically for each cuvée. The farming is intuitive and meticulous; the work in the cellar is equally painstaking.

"The 2014 Extra Brut Blanc de Blancs Grand Cru Vénus is sourced from vines planted in 1959 in the La Fosse lieu-dit, a tiny parcel measuring just 0.3 hectares that is worked by horse. It is a stunning Champagne. Initially somewhat reticent, the Vénus literally explodes with a few hours of opening. Rich, exotic and wonderfully resonant, with soaring aromatics, the 2014 captures all of the intensity of Avize, showing tons of depth and class to burn. I suggest opening it several hours in advance, which will really allow the citrus, floral and mineral flavors to come alive. The 2014 was fermented in neutral oak and aged on the cork. No dosage. Disgorged: April 2020." -Vinous
