As we begin to return to dining out, it’s such a pleasure to have a nice bottle of wine outside on a warm day in San Francisco. My friend wanted some good Champagne, so I opted for a reasonably affordable bottle from one of my favorite producers. This is a non-vintage blend of 1-3 years worth of wines from several plots of Chardonnay that Pascal Agrapart farms organically around the Cote des Blancs. It has wonderfully crisp character and a nice unripe apple and pear quality along with its stony, cistern-like minerality and a faint saline note at the end. Mouthwatering and beautifully filigreed.

Clean and crisp and delicate, but lacking depth and interest.

Young! Great clarity, subtle yet highly impactful with its acid spine. I suspect this will really come around with some time to flesh out. Captures the finesse that makes Agrapart such a benchmark for Avize. 5/2017 disgorgement

December 2014 disgorgement. Pristine tree fruit, delicate creamed texture, sourdough. Refinement and elegance.

2011 vintage & December '14 disgorgement. Good wine for '11 vintage, but clearly not as focused, precise as Agrapart can be.

Very impressive nose that promises a bit more than the palate delivers at this point.
I forgot to take note of the disgorgement date but would certainly love to follow this over the next 5+ years.

Crisp yellow apple, asian pear, fresh dough, confectionaries, tangerines, honey, yellow flowers, crumbly rocks. Elegant and supple champagne with a very fine texture. 1/2016 disgorgement
