With a light dosage of just 5g/l - this is a wonderfully fresh vintage champagne from Legras. Complex, lovely bright fruit - intense and with great mineral drive.

Deep bready nose. Full flavoured, broad and mouth-filling but still with a core of freshness. Seems youthful even with this complex yeasty depth.

In recent years Legras, perhaps, has suffered from being in the shadows of L&S' other terrific Champagne growers Larmandier-Bernier and Egly-Ouriet. But this grower and négociant has a delicious range of its own, so much so one L&S employee even chose Legras as his wedding Champagne, we were told. This vintage - pure Chardonnay too - is in very fine fettle right now, with its nutty, malty nudge towards development and yet the lively bubbles and fresh orange tang give it freshness and purpose.

This prestigious Cuvée comes from our best and oldest vineyards in Chouilly area. The robe is pale yellow with gold reflections. The bubbles are fine and tenacious. The nose reveals aromas of brioche, apricot and fresh almonds. In mouth, in first impression we discover an acidity which brings freshness and a well-balanced wine. Yellow flesh fruit aromas added like Peach and pineapple give a subtle gourmet aftertaste.
R & L Legras: Full Wine List and Profile
One of our earliest champagne grower signings the fabulous Legras family make supremely elegant Champagnes based on the top class Chardonnays from the village of Chouilly, at the start of the Côte des Blancs, just outside Épernay. All their wines are 'Blanc de Blancs' - with no Pinot Noir or Pinot Meunier. (Except the rosé,of course!). Well known and highly respected in France it is used by a surprising number of Parisian restaurants as 'house' champagne, including the Tour d'Argent.
