Agrapart & Fils

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.

Professional Reviews

Antonio Galloni

"Agrapart's NV Brut Blanc de Blancs [sic] Premier Cru 7 Crus is quite powerful and intense in this release. The addition of 10% Pinot Noir now gives the 7 Crus a baritone depth this wine has previously not had, in a sense moving it away slightly from the trademark Agrapart style. This release is equal parts 2010 and 2009, from Avize, Oger, Oiry, Cramant, Avenay Val d'Or, Bergères les Vertus and Mardeuil, which equates to roughly 70% Grand Cru and 30% Premier Cru. Dosage was 7 grams per liter. This bottle was disgorged on July 2013."

"Based half-each on vintages 2010 and 2009, and with 10% Pinot Noir 'smuggled in,' Agrapart’s NV Brut Blanc De Blancs 7 Crus E13 - named for the seven Côte des Blancs villages from which it is sourced, and in this instance disgorged in May, 2013 - displays uncommon delicacy, buoyancy, tension and nuance for an 'intro-level' cuvée, and that uncannily combined with a sense of richness and purity to its white peach and grapefruit. Almond and pistachio cream lend allure; chalk and salt along with piquancy of peach kernel and toasted pumpkin seed impart interest, invigoration and saliva-inducement to an effusively juicy, succulent and refreshingly sustained finish. Seven grams of residual sugar, incidentally, is fairly high by estate standards but perfectly complements this wine’s forward fruit without engendering any sense of outright sweetness. This exceptional value in Champagne should remain irresistible for at least the next couple of years, and I shall be anxious to experience what happens further down the pike as I revisit the bottles I recently purchased (because older 'intro-level' bottles are not usually something that growers - or, for that matter, most self-styled wine collectors - can lay their hands on to pour for you)." -Robert Parker

"This is the entry level, Chardonnay-based cuvée from this very talented grower family. As the name suggests, the grapes come from seven different villages around the Champagne house in Avize. It may be the entry level but it offers so much more depth and energy than any other Champagne in its price category. The nose is so elegant, with aromas of white flowers and a hint of honey. Very pure with an amazing mouthfeel combined with nectarine, apple and a herbaceous character, with a very fine minerality. A real beauty."
