2017 Agrapart Brut Nature Blanc de Blancs Grand cru Vénus

$229.00

This bottling is named after Pascal’s late friend and coworker, his horse named Vénus, who was unfortunately put down after the 2010 harvest. From a steep section of la Fosse in Avize, this is class in a glass….!

“The 2012 Extra Brut Blanc de Blancs Grand Cru Vénus is ethereal, elusive and eccentric. It is also mesmerizingly beautiful. The expression of fruit is a bit richer and riper than in the other 2012s, with orchard fruit and tropical overtones that give the wine a sense of inner perfume and raciness. Soft curves and striking aromatics make for a stunning Champagne, an impression that is reinforced by the super-refined mousse. Persistent, racy and over, the Vénus is simply fabulous in 2012. Old vines planted in 1959 in the La Fosse lieu-dit inform the Vénus. Non-dosé. Disgorged: July 2018.” 95 Antonio Galloni

Description

To my taste, this is simply incredibly beautiful and ethereal Champagne, one of my highlights from visiting the region last November. Just plain wow class in a glass……

“The 2017 Extra-Brut Blanc de Blancs Grand Cru Vénus is more ethereal than the richer Avizoise, offering up aromas of white flowers, sweet stone fruits and fresh hazelnuts, followed by a medium to full-bodied, layered and pillowy palate with a mineral, fine-boned profile and a long, saline finish. It’s proof that, despite the vintage’s poor reputation, some seriously compelling wines were made in 2017, especially from Chardonnay” 95 William Kelley
