Agrapart

Founded in 1894 by Arthur Agrapart, this outstanding estate in Avize acquired much of its present vineyard land during the 1950s and ’60s, thanks to Arthur’s grandson Pierre. Since 1984 it has been run by Pascal Agrapart (pictured), who has taken the domaine to ever-greater heights, emphasizing natural viticulture and the expression of terroir. Agrapart's vineyards are spread over 70 parcels, the majority of which lie in the grand cru villages of Avize, Cramant, Oiry and Oger. Average vine age is about 35 years, with the oldest vines in Avize over 60 years. Pascal Agrapart is uninterested in being labeled as either organic or biodynamic, but he does feel that it’s important to work according to natural rhythms and sensibilities, and both the vineyard work and the work in the cellar follow this philosophy. No chemical pesticides or weedkillers are ever used, and all of the vineyards are worked manually, encouraging the roots to descend deeper. Agrapart places great importance on the proper technique and timing of pruning to control vineyard maladies, and some homeopathic treatments are also used in the vines to control parasites. As expected for a Champagne estate that places a strong emphasis on viticulture, the average potential alcohol at harvest is very high here, normally around 11 degrees, and Agrapart virtually never chaptalizes any of his wines. The grapes are pressed with a traditional Coquard vertical press, and fermentation is carried out with natural yeasts, which Agrapart feels is crucial to the expression of terroir. Malolactic fermentation is completed for all the wines, and a portion of the best wines of the harvest are aged in old, 600-liter demi-muids: “the older the better,” says Agrapart, as he hates the flavors of new barrels. The wines are typically bottled around the full moon of May, with no fining, no filtration and no cold stabilization. Peter Liem.

 

Agrapart Champagne Ready to Ship Anywhere in Australia

Convenience is something that we all expect from the modern world. Technology has made it possible for us to access a variety of things that previously may have been out of reach, but there are some things in this world that require a little more effort to access, such as rare and exclusive champagnes. However, connoisseurs that love the taste of an Agrapart champagne as opposed to a traditionally poured Moët, for example, can now access a wide variety of house names and boutique providers right here in Australia.

At Emperor Champagne, the House of Champagne, our expert tasting panel cater our extensive range of cuvées to your exquisite taste. We believe that having earned your place at the top table, you should have an extraordinary bottle of champagne waiting for you when you want it. Not just any ordinary, run of the mill bottle, but something that turns heads and delivers an explosion of aromas and elegance. We are here to make that dream a reality.

From the Grape to the Glass

Here at Emperor Champagne, we stock Agrapart Terroirs Blanc de Blancs among our vast collection. This exquisite and popular champagne is produced from Chardonnay, a white grape, which is carefully cultivated, picked and pressed by the house.

Agrapart takes great care in terms of how they treat their soil, ploughing it every year and adding compost which comes from local ingredients to the vineyard. Keeping things organic safeguards the integrity of the soil and ensures that their vines can deliver the kind of output that they require.

A bottle of this sophisticated champagne retails for $129.99 here on Emperor Champagne. However, those that are members of our Emperor Champagne Club can acquire it for $122.55. Being part of the club offers so much more than just a discount on the champagne we sell, though.

It solidifies your part of Australia’s only subscription club, which affords you invitations to exclusive and chic champagne events as well as educational content that will set you apart from the crowd in terms of your knowledge of champagne and its history and heritage and complimentary Emperor crystal glassware.

In terms of the latter, as is becoming more and more well-known, traditional flutes do more harm to the integrity of the champagne than good. To this end, here at Emperor Champagne, we are advocates for the tulip shape, which will accentuate the aromas of your Agrapart Blanc de Blancs and deliver the full taste experience each and every time.

Our customised glasses are just another added benefit for champagne connoisseurs who appreciate the value in each bottle and want to get the most value out of their investment these high-end bottles.

Why settle for something bland from a flute that will only detract even further from it? Our tulip glasses will cause your taste buds to rejoice from the first sip to the last of that bottle of Agrapart champagne. What’s more, each and every month, we will send you new champagnes to expand your horizons and experience the best of what the champagne world has to offer.

At Emperor Champagne, we believe in exclusivity, experiences and education, and we want our fellow champagne lovers to benefit from our wealth of knowledge and the connections we have made in this niche industry. Luxurious cuvées await those that are brave enough to step away from the tried and tested familiar brands and embrace a world of powerful taste and unique expression.
