R&L Legras, Saint-Vincent, Blanc de Blancs, Brut 1996

RRP £185

This 100% original disgorgement Chardonnay is from old vineyards located in the village of Chouilly in the Côte des Blancs. The nose opens up to ripe sweet fruit and sweet spice with touches of nutmeg and plenty of bready, leesy characters. The palate also had much to offer, showing tension and complexity. Powerful yet refined, it retains a tight structure and great acidity, with a razor-like precision. The dark horse in the line-up, this offering overperformed and impressed us all.
