2006 Agrapart Minéral Blanc de Blancs Grand Cru

I sit down to write this offer with trepidation. This is an offer that will surely sell out.

Every time that we've offered Agrapart this year, it's sold out in a flash. I'm not surprised. Few Champagnes have captivated me this year the way Agrapart has.

Agrapart delivers some of the most riveting and refined expressions of Chardonnay around.

The Minéral is one of the most gripping wines of the line-up. It's sourced from two prime selections of 40-year-old vines on the hard, white chalk in Avize and Cramant. This cuvée lives up to its name, bursting with a laser-like minerality.

The 2006 is an especially powerful, delineated and pure edition of this wine. There's an incredible finesse to the layers of minerality and complexity that intermingle with crisp stone fruits. I can remember tasting and loving the 2006 young, but like so many wines from this vintage, it has evolved even better than I would have hoped.

I was really excited to have landed this parcel. Agrapart with some age on it doesn't turn up very often. Finding the current vintages in any quantity is really difficult. Please give us your ideal order and we'll try our best.

To order, please email us at or call the store at (212) 980-9463.
