Grape variety: Chardonnay
7 to 9 Chardonnay parcels planted across the street from the house, overlooking the valley between Montgueux and Troyes.
The average age of the vines is 35 years old. 12 to 24 months on the lees in stainless steel tanks.
"Montgueux is primarily a chardonnay terroir, and most of Lassaigne's Champagnes are blanc de blancs, such as his lush, full-bodied nonvintage Les Vignes de Montgueux, a fine introduction to the villages terroir." Peter Liem
Review of earlier disgorgment:
"The latest release of Lassaigne's NV Extra Brut Blanc de Blancs Les Vignes de Montgueux is a blend of the 2016, 2015 and 2014 vintages, and is disgorged à la volée without dosage. Offering up a lively bouquet of green apples, freshly baked bread, white peach and pastry cream, it's medium to full-bodied, taut and racy, with a lively spine of acidity, lovely purity and a long, searingly chalky finish. Lassaigne characterizes this as his "apéro" cuvée—modestly, as this makes for a decidedly serious apéritif."
