The Minéral hails from 40+ year-old vines from 2 parcels at the lower part of the hill namely, Les Champboutons in Aviza and Les Brionnes in Cramant. The soils here are basically pure chalk.

'The 2014 Extra Brut Blanc de Blancs Grand Cru Minéral is a powerful, intense Champagne that captures all of the natural power of these old vines in Avize and Cramant. Aptly named, the Minéral is infused with tremendous mineral and soil inflections that give a real feeling of gravitas. Crushed rocks, slate, chalk and citrus accents are some of the many nuances that emerge with a bit of time in the glass. This release is fabulous. It is also a reticent wine, though, so at least a year or two in bottle will help soften. Dosage is 3 grams per liter. Disgorged: April, 2020.Drink 2022-2039.' – Antonio Galloni, Vinous, 94/100 (Nov 2020)

Producer information Since its inception in 1894, Agrapart’s wines have had an underground following and have gained international recognition in recent years. 4th generation Pascal Agrapart farms more than 70 parcels of vines adding up to 12 hectares. These include 9.5 hectares located in the Côte des Blancs Grands Crus Avize, Oger, Cramant and Oiry, 1.5 hectares of Chardonnay and 1 hectare of Pinot Noir in Avenay-Val-d'Or Premier Cru (Montage de Reims).

A traditional Coquard press is used at harvest with fermentation done by the ambient yeast, which Agrapart feels is crucial to the expression of terroir. All base wines undergo malolactic fermentation with aging mostly in 600L demi-muids. No fining, filtration or stabilisation occurs. Dosage is kept low and the Champagnes are typically bottled in May around the full moon.
