AGRAPART 06 EXTRA BRUT L'AVIZOISE

ANTONIO GALLONI 94 POINTS_"The pure weight of the 50+ year-old vines comes through in the 2006 Extra Brut Blanc de Blancs Grand Cru L'Avizoise. A rich, weighty wine, the Avizoise covers every inch of the palate with stunning depth and sheer power. This is a decidedly creamy, textured wine from Agrapart built on volume and three-dimensional complexity. The Avizoise is made from Les Robards and Voie d'Epernay, fermented in neutral 600-liter barrels and bottled with four grams of dosage. Disgorged June 2012. "

2 STARS PETER LEIM'S CHAMPAGNE GUIDE-"Tasting this bottle shortly after disgorgement, it appears slightly closed and constricted, needing time to recover. However, it's still highly expressive of Avize clay, feeling dark, brooding and savory in tone. It combines power with finesse, veering almost towards red-fruit aromas in its concentrated ripeness yet maintaining a controlled, tautly-wound focus all the way through the long, stony finish. Its a powerfully terroir-driven wine, and should be terrific with sufficient post-disgorgement aging. Last tasted: 11/12."
