Agrapart & Fils Champagne Extra Brut Grand Cru Blanc de Blancs Mineral 2014

by Agrapart & Fils
$129.00
From the producer: Always a vintage champagne, this cuvee comes from two selected vineyard blocks (Bionnes in CRAMANT and Champbouton in AVIZE) with the same geological profile. A thin layer of soil barely covering the chalk.
Precise, savory, and saline, Minéral offers us the chalky dimension of the terroir.
Disgorged 2 months before the release date and dosage limited at 3 grams of sugar per liter.

Antonio Galloni

"The 2014 Extra Brut Blanc de Blancs Grand Cru Minéral is a powerful, intense Champagne that captures all of the natural power of these old vines in Avize and Cramant. Aptly named, the Minéral is infused with tremendous mineral and soil inflections that give a real feeling of gravitas. Crushed rocks, slate, chalk and citrus accents are some of the many nuances that emerge with a bit of time in the glass. This release is fabulous. It is also a reticent wine, though, so at least a year or two in bottle will help soften. Dosage is 3 grams per liter. Disgorged: April, 2020." -Vinous
