Les Vignes de Montgueux, Jacques Lassaigne
Region: Champagne (Aube), France
Grapes: Chardonnay (100%), Blanc de Blanc
Wine type: Sparkling
About: Most of the other areas in Champagne can point to centuries of wine-making history – Montgueux can’t, and even when Champagne houses bought grapes from the village they tried to hide the fact. Emmanuel Lassaigne aims to put Montgueux back on the map. This cuvée is more complex than ever given with ripe citron fruit and exotic notes & terrific texture of very fine gentle bubbles.
