NV Jacques Lassaigne Les Vignes de Montqueux Champagne

Champagne, France

Emmanuel Lassaigne is a unique character in a unique part of Champagne. His Champagne will blow your mind. With its intense driving minerality, dried fruit, citrus zest and vibrant crisp melon flavours. Hand harvested Chardonnay grapes from 9 different sites at their maximum ripeness before being destemmed & gently pressed. The fruit goes through complete malolactic fermentation & no sulfites are ever added to the blend. 12-24 months of ageing in oak and then and held in bottle for 1 to 5 years until it's disgorged, corked & released. 4/5 on Vivino.

About the maker

Emmanuel Lassaigne, Jacques’ son who now runs the vineyard, began working the vines in 1999, and took a wildly different approach by crafting wines from individual parcels.

At the time those around him said he was mad, but Emmanuel has an scaringly astute intuition for making decisions on the fly both in the field and in the cellar. All his bubbles are made with indigenous yeasts only, unusual for the region. Montgueux, the area Emmanuel tends to parcels, is nearly identical to the growing sites found further north in Le Mesnil, sharing the rich limestone vein soils and making exceptional terroir for great champagne. A persistent and intense backbone of acidity throughout all his wines.
