2014 agrapart & fils, avizoise blanc de blancs extra brut grand cru, avize
Why We're Buying
Agrapart & Fils Avizoise Blanc de Blancs Extra Brut is the dictionary definition of investment-grade Champagne. Pale golden hue. Fine bubbles. Sour apple, grapefruit, and tropical aromas mixed with seaside air. With a rising price in recent years, the best time to get Avizoise is now.
The 2014 Extra Brut Blanc de Blancs Grand Cru L’Avizoise, from old vines in the Les Robards and Voie d'Epernay lieux-dits, is a wonderfully complex wine. Rich, ample and mineral but also intensely perfumed, the Avizoise has so much going on. Vinification in oak and aging on the cork seems to really bring out soft contours to match the wine's sculpted, translucent feel. This is an especially refined, aromatic expression of Avize, and also one of the most sublime, elegant wines I have tasted from Pascal Agrapart. Dosage is 3 grams per liter. Disgorged: April, 2020.
