95 points Tyson Stelzer (The Champagne Guide): "(2010 and 2009 blend; a classification of better parcels than 7 Crus; 20-40-year-old vines in Avize, Oger, Cramant and Oiry; equial portions of 2010 and 2009; 50% of 2009 component matured in barrels; full malolactic fermentation; aged 4 years on lees; low dosage of 5g/L). A seamlessly crafted blanc de blancs of enticing purity and approachability; the 2010 and 2009 blend even more magnificent in its mineral expression, freshness and vivacity than the excellent 2009 and 2008... sings with the freshness of lemon and grapefruit, tangy grapefruit zest definition and notes of fresh almonds. Deeply embedded in grand cru chalk soils, it's soft, salty and frothy, creamy in texture and lingering with great length and poise. A beautifully crafted and terroir-infused cuvée. (2016-2017)"

94 points William Kelley (Wine Advocate): "Disgorged in April 2019 with four grams per liter dosage, Agrapart's NV Extra Brut Blanc de Blancs Grand Cru Terroirs is a blend of 40% 2015 and 60% 2014 and derives from old vines that are around 50 or 60 years old. Mingling notes of citrus oil and white flowers with hints of crushed chalk and rock salt, it's medium to full-bodied, racy and incisive, with a satiny attack that segues into a ripe and vinous but chalky, tight-knit core. Drink: 2020-2035. (Aug 2018)"

94 points James Suckling: "This is very complex and layered for a NV with bread dough, sliced cooked apples, minerals and steel. Full body. Tight and compact. Nicely framed and constructed. May 2019 lot. Drink now. (9/2/19)"

92 points Antonio Galloni (Vinous): "[$60 list] Agrapart’s NV Brut Blanc de Blancs Grand Cru Terroirs is a bit unique in this release in that it includes 10% Pinot Noir from Avenay Val d’Or in addition to Chardonnay from Avize, Oger, Cramant and Oiry. Layered and nuanced from start to finish, the Terroirs is a wine of crystalline purity. The aromas and flavors are bright and focused throughout. This release is equal parts 2007 and 2008. Dosage was 5 grams per liter. Disgorged February 2013. Drink: 2013-2018. (May 2013)"

92 points Wine Enthusiast: "A blend from grand cru vineyards in the top villages of the Côte des Blancs. This is Agrapart's base wine, but it is an impressive base, with its extreme minerality that demands food, its lime, kiwi and textured fruit skin flavors. It finishes with great depth and complexity. Editors' Choice. (Dec 2009)"

18/20 points (93), Decanter: "A blend of the 2006 and 2007 vintages, this 100% Chardonnay is sourced from solely grand cru vineyards. Creamy with a fine mousse, its mealy, dried fruit and almond flavours are sweetly edged and with a highly appealing, inherent brightness. Alcohol 12%. (Jan 2013)"
