  • TASTING NOTE: Opens with concentrated aromas of mandarin, apple and orange blossom before expanding on the palate into generous flavours of citrus fruit, flint and fine minerals. The finish is long and chalky and refreshingly briny. 
  • ABOUT THE WINE: 100% Grand Cru with the fruit sourced only from great sites across four revered villages in the Côte des Blancs: Avize, Cramant, Oger and Oiry. Together with the terroir, vine age is a key factor in quality. The average age of the plantings is more than 50 years. This release is based on 2019, 2018 and 2017, with the reserve wine making up a remarkable 80% of the cuvée—another key to the quality. After natural fermentation, half the wine matured in large-format, neutral oak and then spent more than 36 months on lees. Dosage is limited to 5 g/L and disgorgement was carried out by hand in March 2023.
  • ABOUT THE PRODUCER: Founded in the Côtes des Blancs village of Avize in 1894, the small family-run estate has been led by Pascal Agrapart, fourth-generation vigneron and one of Champagne’s leading artisanal viticulturists, since 1984. Agrapart works an astonishing 70 micro-plots in the Côte des Blancs, mostly in Avize with plots in Cramant, Oiry and Oger as well. Production is tiny, with no more than 6000 cases produced in any given year, and vine age is among the oldest in the Côte des Blancs (between 35 and 60+ years old with around 70% of the vines at 40+ years). Pascal rejects prescribed systems and certification labels, instead observing lunar rhythms and adhering to natural winegrowing principles to ensure a sustainable ecosystem. Vineyards are managed organically and maintained through ploughing (some by traditional horse ploughing). Yields are kept very low and the grapes are hand-harvested and fermented with indigenous yeasts, which Pascal believes is integral to terroir expression. Malolactic fermentation is completed for all the wines, and aging is for the most part in old, 600-litre demi-muids.
