Hautes Vignes, Brut, Premier Cru

Lacourte-Godbillon Chaillots, Hautes Vignes, Brut, Premier Cru, 2013

RRP £284.37

Géraldine Lacourte and her husband Richard Désvignes took over the Lacourte family estate in 2006, and today they are crafting vibrant, soil-expressive Champagnes from 8.5ha of vines. This cuvée is pure Chardonnay from two 40-year-old parcels in the villages of Écueil, Chaillots and Hautes Vignes, and it was fermented entirely in oak, giving it a rich texture and silky finesse. It feels tense and energetic underneath its pungent fruit, finishing with brisk, stony minerality and excellent length.
