Practicing Organic. The Champagne house of Agrapart et Fils, located in the lovely village of Avize in the heart of the C�te de Blancs was established in 1894. Unlike many of the smaller grower Champagne houses that have really only recently begun to bottle meaningful amounts of their wine and sell them under their own labels, the Agrapart family has done so since the inception of the domaine in the nineteenth century. Founded by Arthur Agrapart, today the house is run by the fourth generation of the family. The two Agrapart brothers, Pascal and Fabrice, continue to maintain the same commitment to excellence and hand-crafted wines that has earned this fine domaine its loyal customer base in France. The Agraparts own nine and a half hectares of chardonnay vineyards, the vast majority grand cru, in the heart of the C�te de Blancs (primarily located in the villages of Avize, Oger, Cramant and Oiry). To ensure the highest possible quality, production has always been kept at an artisanal level at Champagne Agrapart, with quantities of no more than 5,400 cases produced in any given year. Vine age is amongst the oldest in the C�te de Blancs, with many of the Agrapart's vineyards in excess of sixty years of age, and the average overall age of the vines a healthy thirty-five years of age.
From these fine old chardonnay vineyards the Agraparts produce some of the most refined and complex wines to be found from the C�te de Blancs.
