Product Description

Minéral is blended from two adjacent vieilles vignes plots (50+ years old) of similar, chalky, Grand Cru soils on the border between Avize and Cramant. The fruit from Le Champ Boutons in Avize is fermented in tank, while the component from Bionnes in Cramant is vinified in 600-litre oak casks. Dosage is 3 g/L and the wine has spent some 70 months on lees. This is always the saltiest, racy, mineral wine in the Agrapart range and the 2012 is simply a blinder, as you might expect from such a great vintage. Fans of this wine should not hesitate. In a few years, with time on cork, it will be even greater. 

"Disgorged in April 2019 with three grams per liter dosage, the 2012 Blanc de Blancs Grand Cru Extra Brut Minéral is showing brilliantly, bursting from the glass with aromas of ripe citrus fruit, warm bread, green apples and crushed chalk. On the palate, it's medium to full-bodied, chiseled and incisive, with a tensile, chalky core that displays considerable concentration and structuring dry extract, as well as a racy spine of acidity. This comes warmly recommended." 95 points, William Kelley, The Wine Advocate, Issue 244
