Jacques Lassaigne Blanc de Blancs Les Vignes de Montgueux NV
24 bottles available, $50 per bottle
6 magnums available, $100 per magnum

92 points View From the Cellar: “The current release of the Jacques Lassaigne “le Vigne de Montgueux” Blanc de Blancs is a really lovely bottle that perfectly captures the flinty minerality of the Aube. The bouquet jumps from the glass in a mix of pear, fresh almond, complex, flinty minerality, citrus peel and a gently smoky topnote. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied, complex and beautifully balanced, with a fine core, elegant mousse and a very long, vibrant finish. For a non-dosé bottling, this really shows lovely balance in its youth.”


Jacques Lassaigne Blanc de Blancs Le Cotet NV
12 bottles available, $70 per bottle

93+ points Wine Advocate: “The non-vintage Cuvee Le Côtet Extra Brut is a 100% single vineyard Chardonnay from 50-year-old vines on very poor chalk soil. Fermented in 80% stainless steel and 20% 228-liter barrels, this cuvée is based 90% on the 2010 harvest, whereas the other 10% consist of the vintages 2007, 2005 and 2002. The wine shows a beautifully pure, complex, iodine and chalky bouquet mingled with ripe apple and citrus aromas. Full-flavored and full-bodied on the palate, this is a pure and lingeringly salty, very mineral and well structured Champagne of great purity and expression. It’s very long and bone dry, of great finesse and elegance. This stringent and grippy Cotet is still very young but shall develop well over the next ten years easily, probably even 15 years.”


Jacques Lassaigne Blanc de Blancs La Colline Inspiree NV
16 bottles available, $75 per bottle

93+ points Wine Advocate: “The NV La Colline Inspirée Extra Brut is a 100% Chardonnay based on the vintages 2011 (65%, eight months in barrels on the full lees), 2010 (20 months in barrels on full lees) and 2009 (32 months on full lees) that were blended only one day before the bottling without any addition of sulfur. The wine was disgorged without dosage in November 2014 and offers a clear and fresh, very pure and mineral bouquet with lemon flavors. There seems to be a sea breeze in this Champagne that brings the flavors of oysters and lemons onto the nose. Full-bodied and very complex on the palate, this is a serious and vinous, firmly structured Champagne of great elegance and expression. Its acidity is very well integrated into the mineral body and the “inspired hill” is still closed but has a great future ahead.”
