TASTING NOTES

"The NV Extra Brut Complantée Grand Cru is another deeply intriguing, compelling wine from Pascal Agrapart. The blend of six varieties, planted and vinified together, yields a fascinating and wonderfully complex Champagne. Aromatically nuanced and textured on the palate, the Complantée offers a striking interplay of sensations. The presence of red grapes is felt in the wine's flavor profile and overall feel. Best of all the Complantée will be ready to drink pretty much upon release. The Complantée is sourced from a tiny parcel measuring just 0.2 hectares in the La Fosse lieu-dit in Avize. Disgorged: June 2017. Dosage is 5 grams per liter." Antonio Galloni, Vinous.com

"A cuvée intended to validate Agrapart's contention that terroir trumps cépage, the latest rendition of the NV Extra Brut Grand Cru Complantée is based on the 2016 vintage, complemented by 20% of 2015, and it was disgorged in May 2019 with five grams per liter dosage. Revealing lovely aromas of crisp yellow pear, blanched almonds, white flowers and citrus oil, it's medium to full-bodied, incisive and energetic, with good depth and concentration and a long finish." illiam Kelley, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate #244

"Quite a complex, if slightly ginger beery nose. Gently fizzing and broad. Fun. Lots of smoky character but well balanced and not too demanding in terms of acidity." JancisRobinson.com
