Agrapart NV Champagne Blanc de Blanc "7 Crus"
The fruit for this by no means "entry level" yet extremely well-priced Agrapart bottling comes from parcels in each of the seven villages in the Cotes des Blancs. The wine stays on the lees for three years with some stirring; its primary fermentation occurs with native yeast, the second with a pied de cuve. Offers very pretty white fruit and flower character with an appealing creamy lemon curd note. This is a delightful and easy going Champagne that is also a super value. -msb
