Disgorged March 2018. Complante comes from a single parcel in Avize that Agrapart co-planted (complante) with six varieties: Pinot Noir, Pinot Meunier and Chardonnay, as well as the "heirloom" Champagne varieties of Arbane, Petit Meslier and Pinot Blanc. The fruit for this release is based on the 2015 harvest (with 20% reserve wine from 2014). All the fruit was hand harvested together, co-fermented and barrel-aged before being put to bottle without filtration. The wine rested for just over two years on its lees and dosed with less than 5 g/L. The vines are planted in the La Fosse vineyard, the same vineyard that gives us the great Vnus cuve. The name of the specific portion of vines is La Fosse Bull. With this wine, Pascal Agrapart is delving into the past to try to understand what the ancient varieties and the ancient practice of co-plantation can bring to the table. The wine's atypical savouriness and notes of nettle, crushed herbs and subtle spice may be unfamiliar in a Champagne context, yet the vibrant clarity and driving mineral freshness crackle across the palate and speak loudly of Avize. We'll leave the final word(s) to Peter Liem: "While there are a number of champagnes being made from these varieties today, Agrapart's is surely one of the finest." Something special.
