Hvis du er til en superflot, tør Champagne, så er denne Terroirs fra Champagne Agrapart en oplevelse, der nok vil give dig, hvad du er ude efter. Et blend af de bedste druer fra to årgange - og fra ganske særligt udvalgte marker på vinhusets areal.
Robert Parker - 94
Mingling notes of citrus oil and white flowers with hints of crushed chalk and rock salt, it's medium to full-bodied, racy and incisive, with a satiny attack that segues into a ripe and vinous but chalky, tight-knit core. Serious and softly spoken, Pascal Agrapart is one of the Côte de Blancs's finest vignerons, and I have long admired the chiseled but powerful wines he produces from his organically farmed vineyards.
Decanter - 94
Sourced from specific grand cru plots of older vines in Avize, Oger, Cramant and Oiry, this blend of two vintages displays a zesty lemon aroma, followed by a palate full of fresh apple and tangerine flavours with creamy wood touches. At 5g/l of residual sugar, this nudges into the Extra-Brut category, and it must be one of the very best examples of the style. It works particularly well as a blanc de blancs, and its dry, steely, mineral, moreish character imparts great balance to the ripe fruit profile.
James Suckling - 94
This is very complex and layered for a NV with bread dough, sliced cooked apples, minerals and steel. Full body. Tight and compact. Nicely framed and constructed.
