LASSAIGNE EXTRA BRUT BLANC DE BLANCS LE COTE

A great follow-up to the 2006 which was our Champagne of the Month selection last May. This Champagne
comes from an old vines parcel (planted in 1964) of the Le Cotet vineyard which is situated on the steep slopes
of Montgueux, a hill which has been called the “Montrachet of Champagne.” In addition to having a desirable
southeasterly aspect, Le Cotet boasts some of the deepest, oldest chalk soil in Champagne. Its soil also contains
numerous outcrops of quartz that add a spicy component to its wines. Mostly from 2007 this Le Cotet is more
precocious and open knit than its predecessor. Silver, with yellowish glints, this Chardonnay Champagne opens
with a striking bouquet of pippin apples, yellow plums, chalk dust, honey and allspice. Medium-full bodied, this
Lassaigne brims with quince, apple pie filling, ginger and key lime notions all enveloped with a bracing saline
minerality as well as sturdy acids. A must with seafood or sushi, but also delicious all on its own.
