With a forward nose of vivid fruits, from gooseberry to white peach and white grapefruit, melded with a touch of river water, lanolin and nougat, the palate on 1749 continued Read More...
and expanded on the initial fruit-laden theme. Sweet yet almost tart, notes of star fruit, more gooseberry and white grapefruit merged with a lush mouthfeel, counterbalanced by good acidity to keep it clean and buoyant. Hints of apricots, orange blossoms and clover honey furthered the delicious depth on the palate. The finish is fresh and quick but with a lingering fruit essence and mixed floral touch that reverberates nicely.

This wine is perfect for the warm weather we’ve been having and has a classic Loire Valley profile with a nice dollop of New Zealand-esque citrus-- it’s balanced, clean, fresh, uplifting and clearly a worthy Hi-Time Wine of the Month. Enjoy!

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, Read More...
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."

2 STARS PETER LEIM'S CHAMPAGNE GUIDE-"As always, this comes from the same two parcels, blended in equal proportions: Avize Le Champ Bouton is vinified Read More...
in tank, while Cramant Bionnes is made in demi-muid. This bottle was disgorged only a couple weeks before I tasted it, dosed at slightly over 3 g/l, yet it's already showing a sleek harmony and richly expressive fragrance. Its fruit flavors lie in the green spectrum—fresh pear, apple, green citrus—although it also feels concentrated and full in body on the palate. It persists on the finish with excellent length, its vibrant, expansive aromas intertwined with saline minerality, and it should become even more complex with a few years in the cellar. Last tasted: 11/12."

Pascal Agrapart has an unsurpassed, dare we say fanatical passion to create Champagnes that present high resolution taste portraits of their Côte des Blancs terroir. For this roster we have selected his aptly named Cuvée Minéral because it makes a fabulous flavor statement for the man and his mission. It is a 50/50 blend of 40-year- old parcels in Avize and Cramant. The Avize portion was fermented in tank while the Cramant base wine was vinified in old oak barrels. Everything went through full malolactic fermentation with no filtration. Dosage was a minimal 4g/l. Australian Champagne maven Tyson Stelzer's remarks are spot on: “…It’s a delightfully expressive wine that hits high notes of wonderful freshness and purity, within a style of reverberating concentration, substance and creamy, textual mouthfeel. White nectarine leads out, layered with honey, brioche and nougat, finishing with hints of nutmeg. Pascal Agrapart describes it as a vertical wine with dark acidity, but to me the acidity is as fresh and bright as daylight, with a softness of early morning light filtered through fine mist. 95 Points.”

2 STARS CHMPAGNEGUIDE.NET-"This is the first commercial release of this cuvée, although Agrapart has been experimenting with it since 2002. It's a blend Read More...
of equal parts Avizoises and Minéral, and made without chaptalization or dosage, using all indigenous yeasts for both the first and second fermentations. It feels broad and visceral, with a mouthfilling fragrance and a certain sweetness of fruit, and in its burnished, textural richness and expansive depth, it's more reminiscent of Vénus than of any of the estate's other cuvées—both of these were aged on cork and released without dosage, which could also be a factor in this regard. It's brilliantly pure in its clarity and expression, and while you can't say that it's more or less so than other Agrapart wines, it's a different kind of purity, one that's more individual and somehow more corporeal in character. It has a lot of finesse, supported and enlivened by its minerality, and it has a great deal to say: this is a wine to spend some time with, and one that every champagne aficionado should experience."

With the latest disgorgement, Agrapart has reduced the dosage of the 7 Crus from 10 g/l to 7 g/l. This suits the wine very well, seemingly giving it more brightness and liveliness, Read More...
and it places more emphasis on the stony, chalky minerality that supports the floral aromas of pear, apple and green citrus. With its 50 percent of reserve wine from 2006, it shows excellent mid-palate depth and complexity, and it’s a perfect example of how a good non-vintage brut balances character and authenticity with sheer, delicious drinkability.

a streak of smoky mineral and finely wrought acidity and texture push through on the finish. Drink now."

This non dosed Brut (except the reserve component) was all vinified in secondhand barrels, most of which are old, 228-liter barriques purchased from Chablis. The wines stay in barrel for about six months before being blended and bottled: "The idea is not to mark the wines with the wood," says chef de cave Nicolas Jaeger, "but to give them more structure, more finesse and length." This bottling is a blend of 41 percent chardonnay, 32 percent Pinot Noir and 27 percent Meunier, with 20 percent of the total made up of reserve wines.

ROBERT PARKER 98 POINTS: "An absolutely spectacular wine from this estate, run with meticulous precision by Hubert de Bouard, the opaque bluish/purple Read More...
2010 Angelus offers up a beautifully sweet smorgasbord of aromas ranging from blueberry pie to espresso roast, white chocolate, creme de cassis, licorice, truffle and a touch of lead pencil shavings. There is even a floral underpinning to this extraordinary, highly-scented, full-bodied wine. Rich, layered and built like a skyscraper, this multi-dimensional Angelus has lavish concentration and moderately high tannin, but it is sweet and well-integrated, as is the oak. Just enough acidity provides focus and delineation to this exceptionally well-endowed wine, which should hit its prime in 7-10 years and last 30-40."

WINE SPECTATOR 97 POINTS: "Got patience? You'll need it to wait this brute out fully. A chunk of tar sits between you and the core of black currant, hoisin sauce and roasted Black Mission fig fruit flavors, while the back end is a road-paving machine laying down a smoldering tarry track of tobacco and freshly ground coffee. And there's an iron note too, as if this needed it. One of the most backward wines of the vintage. Best from 2017 through 2040." –JM
