Brilliance in the Côte des Blancs Revisited
2007 Agrapart L'Avizoise Blanc de Blancs Extra Brut

Posted by Ian McFadden

The Champagnes of Agrapart represent some of the most captivating and soil-inflected examples of the Côte des Blancs.

They are some of the most refined, tensely mineral, and simply impressive Champagnes around.

L'Avizoise is one of our favorite Champagnes. We love L'Avizoise for its balance of lavishness and electric minerality. It offers a crystal-clear expression of Chardonnay.

L’Avizoise comes from the clay-rich soils at the top of the slope. It’s undoubtedly the most powerful wine in Agrapart’s lineup. It stands out for its combination of presence and length with exacting focus, lift, and finesse.

The 2007 L'Avizoise shows off the clay limestone soils of Avize. It's a more expansive showing of Chardonnay boasting a fascinating textural depth of soil tones that mingle in perfect harmony with subtle shavings of spice, sweet herbs, and stone fruits. For all of its breadth, L'Avizoise remains agile with an incisive core.

Agrapart made some of the most impressive 2007 Champagnes we've tasted. L'Avizoise serves as a monument to their success in the vintage. I'm very happy to have another opportunity to offer this.
