Premier Cru 7 Crus Nv

Grape Variety: 
100% Chardonnay
Tasting Note: 
The NV Brut Blanc de Blancs Premier Cru 7 Crus is a lovely, introductory-level Champagne from Agrapart. Bright and focused, but also with more than enough mid-palate richness to be accessible upon release, the 7 Crus is super-expressive today. The inclusion of 10% Pinot Noir a few years back has changed the 7 Crus in a meaningful way in making the wine more accessible in its youth. The creamy, spiced finish is hugely appealing, but there is a lot to like here, including the wine's overall balance. This release is a blend of equal parts 2013 and 2012. The seven villages in the blend are Avize, Oger, Oiry, Cramant, Avenay Val d’Or, Bergères les Vertus and Mardeuil. Dosage is 7 grams/liter. Disgorged: June 2015.
