To me, ‘Terroirs’ is the Agrapart flagship. ‘7 Crus’ is better known, but I find the inclusion of Pinot Noir gives that wine a spherical profile that is atypical for the Domaine, even if convincingly beautiful.
‘Terroirs’ is more streamlined, with more cut and a more vividly mineral aspect. It is among the completest Champagne at this price, and certainly, for me, the most strikingly elegant among them. Tough to find in magnum, and a no brainer when the occasion presents itself. - Jason
Terroirs is a classic BdB that offers ultra purity and transparency. A touch of reduction with super fine bubbles, clean citrus fruit, and a hint of white orchard fruit. There's vibrant acidity with a good amount of brioche. I loved the attack of minerality on the mid palate paired with a soft creamy finish. Yummy! I always prefer magnums for champagne. It’s a smart buying strategy. - Daniel
If you want to celebrate Summer (or any other season) then magnums of Champagne are called for. And it's difficult to do better than this one, offering the savoir-faire of Agrapart and the precise energy of Blanc de Blancs.
The cuvée 'Terroirs' is Chardonnay from Grand Cru villages Avize, Cramant, Oger and Oiry with vines around 50 years old (any younger vines go into 7 Crus), and wines across two vintages with a dosage of 5g/L. There's an initial impression of lemon curd and white flowers on the nose which leads to a delightfully corseted mid-palate. There is plenty of zest and salinity counterbalancing a sneakily rich finish.
These are offered at the lowest prices in the US and quantities are limited. Given Agrapart's reputation, if you are interested I recommend acting without delay.
