Agrapart Les 7 Crus N.V.
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.

Very composed peaches and red fruit, as well as striking, ripe aromas of strawberries and hints of honey. The palate has deep, flavorsome peach and strawberry flavors. Very fresh-fruit driven and upbeat. A blend of 2014 (40 per cent) and 2015 (60 per cent). 90 per cent chardonnay and ten per cent pinot noir. Drink now.

2008 and 2007 with some oak. Light and delicate. Really lively. Zesty. Whisper clean and yet satisfying. 7 g/l dosage. DG date given on the bottle.
