CHAMPAGNE LEGRAS ET HAAS

Brigitte Legras

CHAMPAGNE LEGRAS ET HAASOur house was founded in 1991 per François Legras-Haas. The vineyard belongs to the family: 15 ha with Chouilly (Chardonnay grand cru), 10 ha with Vitry (Chardonnay), 6 ha with Les Riceys (pinot noir). Rémi and Olivier took in hand the family company and are helped now by Jérôme. The house continues a reasonable progression both in France and with export. The grand cru Chouilly offers a potential of guard while presenting when it is young, a fresh and light character, appreciated with aperitif. The Chardonnays 2002 are long, suaves and very aromatic with floral or fruity aspects which prevail. The potential degree with the vintage was of 10.5% vol., more matured these 10 last years. The wines are structured and powerful.
Champagne blanc de blancs grand cru Les Sillons 2013, of a superb pale gold colour, with complex notes, fresh almond, ripe fruits and small dried fruits, all in aromatic persistence, of a long length in the mouth. Also this very beautiful cuvée Extra-Brut, a White of whites from a selection of the best places, with a dosage close to the natural crude, with the scent of fresh almond, lemon, apple reinette, very fresh, intense and round, with a subtle and persistent nose, a very beautiful Champagne, very harmonious, very mineral and mature as we like them.
Superb Champagne grand cru blanc de blancs Millésimé 2012, which presents on the nose clear aromas of wheat, dried tobacco, fruit compotes. The mouth is full, fresh, Chardonnay manifests itself with aromas of yellow fruit, honey and dried apricot.
The blanc de blancs grand cru, a single grape, the Chardonnay, a single vintage, the grand cru Chouilly, with the incorporation of reserve wines to ensure continuity in quality, a cuvée of a limpid color, delicacy, with a frank nose and flowers of rose and ripe pear, fruity mouth, subtly spicy.
It is followed by Exigence N°9, 50% Chardonnay and 50% pinot noir, which has just been released, with a change of label color. Two unique terroirs married in a requirement of perfection. Dense nose of hazelnut and grape juice, ample and fresh mouth, very nice balance emphasized by seductive aromas of apples and pears. The Brut Intuition, a fine and persistent moss, combines finesse and structure, a bright yellow, with the scents of flowers and spices. Beautiful rosé, that smells good the strawberry of the woods, ample in mouth, combining richness and distinction, of a great finish.
Also discover the Coteaux Champenois blanc Chouilly 2014, 100% Chardonnay, well vinified.
