Description

Although one should not necessarily judge a Champagne by the number of listings it has in the Michelin-starred restaurants of Paris, one can not fail but to be impressed by Legras in this respect; and in many other respects, indeed, as one tastes the wines. Founded in the 16th century, Legras is one of the great names of Chouilly, the famous and most northerly village of the Côte de Blancs. The House style combines a firm and classic structure with a generous fruit profile. The Présidence has been aged for over four years and has a charming nose of brioche, almonds and apricot. The palate is refreshing; it’s full and ripe yet restrained: a pleasing compôte of contradictions in other words and one of the House’s strongest releases to-date.
