Legras and Haas Grand Cru Champagne

New Grower Champagne

Legras & Haas Blanc de Blancs - Grand Cru....$49.99
Blanc de Blancs

Technical Notes: The grapes for this wine are all hand harvested. Only the first lightly-pressed, and free run juices, are used to make their Champagne. This wine is fermented and aged in stainless steel before bottling.
(Dosage = 9 g/l) 

 Total Production 1600 cases
Tasting Notes: The Legras & Haas Blanc de Blancs is a wine with a laser-like focus. In the glass the bubbles are very fine and persistent. Crisp citrus fruit and minerality lead to hints of white stone fruit and brioche notes. This is a lively, festive Champagne. While it is perfect as an aperitif, it is also a great match for fish or poultry (especially when prepared in a rich cream sauce). This is truly a wine that deserves to be called Grand Cru.
