Agrapart Mineral Blancs de Blancs Grand Cru 2009

External Review:

One of the highlights in this set of new releases the 2006 Extra Brut Blanc de Blancs Grand Cru Mineral boasts a serious core of pure density and fruit. This is an especially powerful authoritative Champagne graced with superb purity of fruit backed up with intense layers of buffering acidity and minerality. Hazelnuts dried pears smoke and crushed rocks are some of the nuances that linger on the muscular resonant finish. Readers will have a hard time keeping their hands off this precious Champagne but I am also tempted to cellar a few bottles of the 2006 just to see how it develops over the next handful of years. The 2006 was made from parcels in Les Champboutons (Avize) and Les Bionnes (Cramant). Agrapart fermented the wine in neutral 600 liter barrels. Dosage was 4 grams per liter. Disgorged June 2012. Anticipated maturity: 2013-2021. --- Antonio Galloni Robert Parkers Wine Advocate.
