Champagne Pascal Agrapart Les 7 Crus
90% Chardonnay, 10% Pinot Noir (12% alc.)
This comes from vines in seven villages, including the Grands Crus of Avize and Cramant. Blended from the 2017 and 2016 vintages and given over two years 'sur lattes', the dosage of 5g/l is well-judged, helping to emphasize its driving fruitiness and minerality. It is a perfect example of how a good NV champagne balances character and authenticity with sheer, delicious drinkability. Disgorged 06/20.
