Agrapart & Fils – Champagne Avizoise Grand Cru Blanc de Blanc Extra Brut – 2007
The ultimate creation of all the selection to raise the vigor of Chardonnay to out-of-bounds levels of quality where technique and vision have created one thing: Avizoise. First produced in 1995, this Champagne is the fruit of two hillside plots in the Grand Cru of Avize, Robarts and Gros Yeux, both exposed between south-south/east with vineyards over 60 years old where clay and limestone soils give wines of unique depth. Separate vinifications in wooden tanks, no filtration or clarification after draught, aging on lees ranging from 72 to 84 months before dégorgement. This is a bubble in the sign of perfection, citrus aromas and yeast notes from the long aging, it presents itself on the palate with an extraordinary balance, well-marked mineral notes blended with a persuasive creaminess. You cannot fail to try it at least once!

A maison synonymous with quality, Agrapart & fils has always stood out in the appellation, among the few Récoltant Manipulant still in existence, they do not sell or buy the grapes but produce their labels taking care of the whole process. The winery is located in Avize on the Cote des Blanc, it was in 1894 that Arthur Agrapart decided to buy some parcels in some of the best crus in the area for Chardonnay with small parts of Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier. Today the entire estate is managed by brothers Pascal and Fabrice Agrapart, there are 12 hectares planted with vines mainly distributed in the Grand Cru of Avize, Oger, Cramant and Oiry where the tradition has been continued in total respect for the environment with use of natural products in the vineyards guaranteeing the quality of the grapes. Wines with many identities that reflect the essence of the terroir, winemaking in the cellar is separate for each parcel where both steel tanks and wooden barrels are used, use of indigenous yeasts and permanence on fine lees before long aging in the bottle so as to obtain finesse in the bubbles. The search for details is what has characterized their philosophy since birth.
