Champagne Agrapart: Terroirs is Back in Town

Champagne Agrapart: Terroirs is Back in Town

★★★ Producteur de qualité exceptionnelle Les Meilleurs Vins de France 2023, La Revue du Vin de France (The same rating granted to Selosse, Egly-Ouriet and Krug)

Pascal Agrapart embodies the best of the artisan tradition in Champagne, and his wines show it.” Antonio Galloni, Vinous
Agrapart’s wines are of uniformly excellent quality, with a naturally vibrant and vinous character that makes them feel grown rather than made.” Peter Liem, champagneguide.net
 
“Pascal, now aided by his son Ambroise, is one of the great artisanal winemakers of Champagne, with beautifully situated and thoughtfully farmed parcels, careful winemaking and a terrific track record for producing wines of structure, concentration and complexity.” William Kelley, The Wine Advocate

The new Terroirs and 7 Crus bottlings from one of Champagne’s great growers have arrived. Despite being one of the entry wines in the range, Terroirs is in fact a benchmark Blanc de Blancs. For the first time, this rendition comprises three vintages. More significantly, the level of reserve wine is now hitting 80%. When Pascal Agrapart last dialled up the reserve—from 40% to 60%—we witnessed a significant uplift in the wine’s complexity and vinous depth. You can expect the same from the new disgorgement. The 7 Crus sees a more modest increase in reserve wine, which now accounts for half the blend. The reserve wine matures in old 600-litre barrels from François Chidaine and Didier Dagueneau for both wines.
 
We’re probably starting to sound like a broken record, but this producer’s viticultural and winemaking standards (to say nothing of the class in the bottle) put these wines at the very top of their genre. In our opinion, their quality surpasses prestige cuvées from many large houses. They are obviously far rarer, too.
 
The new disgorgements are emblematic of the radiance, chalky intensity and crystalline precision we have come to expect from one of the true reference points for Côte des Blancs Chardonnay. They are also staggeringly delicious.
