Champagne Agrapart & Fils, Brut Nature Grand Cru, Blanc de Blanc "Vénus" 2015 - 0,75L
This cuvée comes from a 60 ares parcel of Avize, where the vines are not worked with heavy mechanical machinery. This wine is a raw wine, 100% cask, which reveals aromas of peach and apricot. For the anecdote, Venus was the mare who helped to plow the plot. This wine is in a way a tribute to his «memory».
The Maison Agrapart & Fils has been in Champagne since the end of the 19th century.
The family has very beautiful plots of chardonnay in grand cru in Avize, Cramant, Oger and Oiry.
It is Pascal and his son Ambroise (respectively 3rd and 4th generation), who are today at the head of the House. They claim the status of harvesters-manipulators and vinify parcel cuvées in old barrels.
The wines impress with their minerality, their aromatic palette and the fineness of the bubbles.
