About the Wine:
Founded in 1894, this has become one of the finest grower estates in the Côte des Blancs under its current proprietor, Pascal Agrapart, who has been making wines here since 1984. His 10ha of vines lie largely in the grand cru villages of Avize, Cramant, Oiry and Oger, and while he’s uninterested in being labelled organic or biodynamic, he works according to natural rhythms and sensibilities, without any chemical pesticides or herbicides. Agrapart always ferments his wines with indigenous yeasts, which he feels is crucial to the expression of terroir, and a portion of the wines are aged in old, 600-litre oak casks.

Always a vintage champagne, this cuvee comes from 2 selected vineyard blocks in AVIZE (Robarts, Gros yeux) with the same geological profile. A deep layer of clay-rich topsoil before the chalk. Bottled under cork.

Tasting Notes:
Avizoise offers density and richness, and is at the same time gastronomic and elegant. Disgorged 2 months before the release date and dosage limited at 3 grams of sugar per liter.


Ratings & Reviews

93 Points - Vinous Media:
"The 2015 Extra Brut Blanc de Blancs l’Avizoise Grand Cru stands out in this range for its breadth and power. Lemon peel, savory herbs, dried flowers, grapefruit and mint lend a bit of upper register and aromatic presence. Slight vegetal notes, a characteristic of any 2015s, lurk beneath, while texturally the Avizoise is on the lighter side. For those reasons, I would not push my luck on aging. Dosage is 3 g/L. Disgorged May 2021.” – Antonio Galloni (Nov 2021)
