"It has a great deal to say without the need to do it loudly"
- 2013 Agrapart Mineral Blancs de Blancs Grand Cru

Posted by Ian McFadden

Agrapart's Minéral is one of the most riveting expressions of Chardonnay to be found.

Every time I drink a bottle of Minéral, I'm blown away. There are very few Champagnes that I've had similar experiences with.

It's a bottle that more than lives up to its name. It offers up a blazing, focused chalky mineral tension. In 2013, this signature is on bold display.

Pascal and Fabrice Agrapart are masters of terroir. Agrapart's are some of the most refined Chardonnays to be found in the Côte des Blancs. For all of their class and impeccable breeding, they also come across as undeniably honest expressions of terroir.

The Minéral is one of the most captivating wines of the lineup. It is sourced from two prime lieux-dits with 40-year-old vines that are grown on the hard, white chalk in Avize and Cramant.

For us, 2013 in Champagne is a truly exciting vintage that will likely be considered as a great one in due time. It's not a showy vintage. Instead, the vintage delivered wines of finesse, subtlety, and incredible purity. The Côte des Blancs was particularly successful.

As you can imagine, Agrapart's Minéral is absolutely brilliant in 2013. It is sleek, crystal clear, and possesses impeccable class structure. Simply put, this is a killer vintage of Minéral.

I strongly encourage you to take advantage of the special 3-pack pricing. Catching Minéral with some age on it is absolutely captivating. The 2013 Minéral will be fascinating to track for a decade or more.
