Millésime 2007 Brut Nature Blanc de Blancs 2007
Bottle Sizes 750ml
Appellation Champagne (Montgueux)
Wine Type Sparkling
Vineyard A blend of 40-50 year old vines in the parcels of Le Cotet, Les Paluets and La Grande Côte.
20-30% : La Grande Côte lies at the base of the Montgueux slope, with the oldest vines dating from the early 1960s, and the heavier soils here give wines that are ample and broad, full of pineapple and mango opulence. –––
70-80% : A blend of the oldest vines from Les Paluets which were planted in the 1950s and Le Cotet, a steep vineyard located on the far eastern end of Montgueux. Lassaigne uses the younger vines of Le Cotet for this cuvée as the older vines go into the single vineyard Champagne Le Cotet.
Soil Heavy clay and chalk
Viticulture All his parcels are farmed organically with extra emphasis placed on picking at optimum ripeness. Simple Guyot pruning is employed. Lassaigne adds sulfur at harvest in order to keep the fruit from oxidizing.
Vinification The grapes are harvested by hand at maximum ripeness. Destemmed and lightly pressed, the chardonnay undergoes complete malolactic fermentation. Lassaigne vinifies all parcels separately. The domaine has been disgorging without sulfur for 32 years.
Aging Aged in barrel with no dosage added.
Notes As an accompaniment to the fine dining experience, for an aperitif or sipping with food, a vintage Blanc de Blancs Champagne, with no sugar added during disgorging. Fresh and lingering on the palate, with hints of honey and gingerbread – an authentic wine.
