2007 - Agrapart Brut Nature Blanc de Blanc EXPERIENCE
- Drinking Window:
- 95 AG
The 2007 Blanc de Blancs Grand Cru Expérience is one of the most singular, unique Champagnes I have tasted in a very long time. Here the prise de mousse (the bubbles) is generated with the blending of the following year's unfermented juice, in this case 2008. The resulting wine is very, well, wine-like. The 2007 Experience wafts on the palate with the most exquisite, delicate expression of fruit. The mousse is incredibly fine, as is the rest of the wine's balance. This is a fabulous effort from Agrapart. The 2007 Experience was fermented in 600-liter barrels and bottled with no dosage. Disgorged July 2011.
The 2007 Brut Blanc de Blancs Grand Cru Experience is one of the most interesting wines being made in Champagne today. Pascal Agrapart adds must from the following vintage, in this case 2008, for the prise de mousse, the secondary fermentation that takes place when Champagne is bottled, in this case, with no dosage. The 2007 is totally beguiling. Not surprisingly, it tastes like a cross between Champagne and a still white wine. Apricots, peaches, flowers and mint are some of the many aromas and flavors that come alive in this exotic, quirky yet highly compelling wine. Disgorged June 2012.
