Reviews of purchase Champagne R&L Legras, "Saint-Vincent" Blanc de Blancs Grand Cru Brut, Champagne AOC, 2008
Champagne is golden yellow with flickering sparks and small pearls of bubbles.
Wealth and complexity distinguish the taste of champagne. The first sip is sharp, lively, even slightly aggressive. But after a while he gets grace and tenderness. Acidity keeps at a high level thanks to shades of citrus. The aftertaste is impressive both in purity and depth, ending with notes of oyster shells, sea salt, amaretto and tobacco.
In the pure, intense scent of champagne, the shades of fried almonds and lemon peel are dominated by the nuances of hot buns, butter, jasmine and dynamic mineral-iodine notes.
Champagne fits well with shrimp and shellfish, carpaccio made from fish, sushi, baked fish. Try it with caviar or foie gras.

House Champagne R & L Legras has its roots in the distant past, to the origins of the centuries-old traditions of the Champagne region. The history of the family begins in the 16th century, but a momentous turning point came in 1808, when Honore Legras began cultivating one of the most beautiful vineyards of the Côte de Blanc. This region in Champagne is called the kingdom of Chardonnay, which receives here truly magical qualities. The dynasty of winemakers continues from father to son and even after 6 generations the winery continues its way to perfection.
Today the company has expanded its holdings and controls almost 24 hectares of exceptional vineyards in the Côtes de Blanc. But production remained very small: from 15 to 25 thousand bottles a year, and this is practically "manual work" in this industry. Champagne wines of R & L Legras are appreciated by the famous restaurants marked by the Michelin star, not only in France but also in Europe.
