Agrapart 'Mineral' Extra Brut Champagne 2011
Single vintage bottling from one of the Cote de Blanc’s most exciting, artisanal producers. Frit comes from the bottoms of various hillsides in Avize and Cramant, firmly rooted into distinctly chalky soils. 40+ year vines give way to concentrated fruit, with lightning like acidity and distinct minerality. Five years on the lees adds complexity to this terroir-driven bottle, with notes of salty, chalky fruit and mineral undertones.
