    Comprising 27% 2015, 38% 2014 (part oak aged for a year) and 35% 2013, more complex and vinous than ever this year, given greater use of reserve wines. Emmanuel is forever restless in his search for improvements. This has ripe citron fruit with exotic notes and is very saline, with great play on the palate and terrific texture. Just 20g/l for the secondary fermentation and has a very fine gentle bubble. Disgorged with zero dosage in Aug 2017. Low levels of sulphur used only at the press. For drinking now to 2020.

    This is a blend of old vines in Lassaigne’s three top vineyards of Les Paluets (40%), le Cotet (40%) and la Grande Côte (20%). It is always vinified 100% in stainless steel which Emmanuel feels captures the purest expression of the terroirs. Brut Nature, this has excellent balance with peach, stewed lemon and mango fragrantly ample and inviting, with an intense, detailed stony chalkiness (from le Cotet). As this ages it takes on a Meursault character. For drinking now to 2021.
