Just honest, well-made, and well-priced wines for everyday drinking.
"The grapes for this project were grown by Emmanuel Lassaigne of Champagne Jacques Lassaigne. Although their town of Montgueux is technically part of the Aube, the soils here are dominantly limestone making it much more similar to the Cote de Blanc, and in particular, Le Mesnil. This distillate is made exclusively from Chardonnay pomace from a single lieu-dit called Le Cotet. The marc was distilled in an 11hl pot-still before extended élevage in glass. 45% ABV" - Juice Imports
