Agra­part Ter­roirs Blanc de Blancs Grand Cru Brut NV

Western Suburbs Weekly - - Wine -

Agra­part fa­mously de­liver low-dosage wines with per­fect fruit ripeness.

This wine is de­li­cious, 100 per cent Chardonnay, salted pre­served le­mons on the nose, ex­pan­sive, bis­cu­ity palate, clean and long with re­fresh­ing acid­ity. 5gms/RS. Love it. 18.4 points. RRP $100. Pol Roger Brut Re­serve NV A stal­wart and for good rea­son – it is an im­pres­sive NV in great form. A sur­pris­ingly en­er­getic mousse, mouth-filling in fact, but a typ­i­cally fresh and onform palate. Great length of flavour, pre­ci­sion and ev­ery­thing I’ve come to ex­pect from Pol. 18.1 points. RRP over $100.

De­lam­otte Blanc de Blancs NV

Four years age­ing in bar­rel, 100 per cent grand cru chardonnay fruit. Won­der­ful brined le­mons, mousse is en­er­getic and the com­plex­ity and length are here in spades. This house has ac­cess to Salon fruit in de­clas­si­fied vin­tages. A great NV. 18.5 points. RRP $139.
