Blind Tasting of 13 champagnes from 13.06.2015 (83-93 points)
typical champagne nose as brioche toast, citrus, I guessed 50-50 mix but surely it was 100% BdB, midlle minerality and length, some bitterness in the finish, I love agrapart champagnes especially mineral but this was an off-bottle in my opinion
Very light in color. nose of apple cider, caramel/salt pretzels scent starts emerging after around 30 min, dark bread and white flowers. Very straight Champagne, good structure and very precise. I suggest to drink this wine not too cold as the interesting flavors start to emerge at a temperature of around 14 degrees Celsius. Now fully mature but plenty of live left. Drink - 2022
Once again a pretty solid performance with a full-ish and rich feel and especially for an extra brut very round and lush. Good toasty side, light citrus, light exotic feel at times. Pretty good but needs a notch up. 90-91
Lovely. Quite lush and round for an extra brut. Very pretty floral, honeysuckle, passion fruit, Asian pear aromas on the nose. The palate is full and rich with a glycerin-like texture knitted together by fine minerals. Drinking well now.
Drunk as an aperitif but might have been better with some food. This started off quite abrasive but softened and gained width over time. Previous bottles have showed better. It had a lovely blanc de blanc nose with lots of chalk, mineral and citrus but the palate was a little bitter.
Papies is right on with his/her comments. Some citrus notes - definitely some toasty notes tucked away that come out after about 20 minutes. As minerally as the name implies. Dry but enjoyable. Perfect cleanser either before dinner (as was my case) or in between courses perhaps. Would like to try with just oysters...or better yet - razor clams.
Quite full and rich and a lot rounder than we expected it to be. Mineral as per name but also lush fruit notes, citrus, melon, with good weight and nice toasty elements. This probably spent a lot of time on its lees. Definitely an interesting wine although not sure on the longevity. 91-92 ( March 2012 discorgement)
très beau champagne, au nez delicat et fin sur les agrumes avec une pointe de noix fraiche et d'ores et déjà une sensation minérale qui se poursuivra en bouche. Beaucoup de delicatesse, de la sève, il commence à avoir des saveurs miellées tout en restant très pur. 16.5/20
