Pale straw in the glass with lovely mineral, dried fruit and citrus zest aromatics that reflect the purest expression of the Montgueux terroir. The palate is vibrantly alive with crisp citrus and melon flavours that are backed by deft acidity & dazzling minerality. A wonderful match to oysters, seafood and shellfish. And of course, by itself.
A strong-willed man, Emmanuel Lassaigne has made remarkable efforts in giving the terroir of Montgueux a new lease of life, and he shows no sign of taking all the credit for it. He simply continues to produce rare Champagnes that show consistent elegance, and the characteristics of his terroir.
