Jacques Lassaigne La Colline Inspiree Blanc de Blancs Extra Brut MV
100% Chardonnay. One of the most exciting producers in Champagne is Emmanuel Lassaigne, an intelligent and thoughtful grower, who works in the village of Montugeux which is a strata of the Cote des Blancs. La Colline Inspirée is from 40+ year old vines with vinification and aging entirely in barrel. This is an opulent, creamy champagne with gorgeous hazelnut overtones.
"A blend of the 2013 and 2012 vintages that was disgorged in March, the NV Extra Brut Blanc de Blancs La Colline Inspiré opens in the glass with aromas of almond paste, citrus oil, crisp green apple and pastry cream, gently framed by its élevage in barrel. On the palate, the wine is full-bodied, vinous and concentrated, with an immensely incisive spine of ripe but bracing acidity, a fine mousse and a long, electric and searingly saline finish. This bottling is produced from several parcels in Montgueux, and all the vins clairs are now fermented and matured in barrel." - William Kelley
