The Agrapart family makes truly hand-made wines, seeking to bring out the individuality of each terroir. The winery is based in the grand cru village of Avize, famous for its cuvees of 100% Chardonnay. Pascal and Fabrice farm 10 hectares from some 60 different vineyard plots in the Côte de Blancs, including Oger, Cramant, Oiry and Avize. They prefer not to label their viticultural methods; they farm using only homeopathic vine treatments, composts, manures, and regular plowing.
This is a gorgeous Champagne blend of 90% Chardonnay 10% Pinot Noir from one of the very best producers in all of Champagne. 100% of the fruit comes from estate-owned parcels located in each of the seven villages in the Côte des Blancs: Avize, Oger, Oiry, Cramant, Avenay Val d’Or, Bergères les Vertus, and Mardeuil. Practicing organic; use of high quality organic composte for the soils and vines; all fruit is hand-harvested.Following 100% malolactic fermentation, one-quarter of the wine is aged in older (more neutral) 600L casks, the remainder is aged in stainless steel tanks.

Based on the 2019 vintage and disgorged in April 2022, Agrapart’s NV Brut 7 Crus wafts from the glass with scents of crisp green apple, freshly baked bread, white flowers and buttery pastry. Medium to full-bodied, fleshy and enveloping, it’s an ample, incisive wine, with racy acids and a saline finish. When the range begins like this, you know you’re in the presence of one of Champagne’s greatest producers.

Vibrant fruit here, with peaches, apricots, lemons, pears, almonds and spicy anise notes. Fresh and crisp with very fine bubbles. Textured, with wonderful purity of fruit. 90% chardonnay and 10% pinot noir from 7 villages. Fruit 60% from 2019 and 40% from 2018.
