R.L. Legras, Brut Blanc de Blancs Grand Cru Chouilly Non Vintage

Legras Blanc du Blancs NV #1

Legras Blanc du Blancs NV #2

100% Chardonnay.  2008 base vintage.  From 100% grand cru vineyards.  Dosage: 6 g/l.  Unknown disgorgement date; current release.

Primrose.  Hyper-animated, piquant and incisive: wintery citrus pith, smoky crushed stone allusions and bracken intimations of oyster and scallop.  A searing structure, with goose-pimpled tension and lingering savor.  Vibratory, kombucha finish.  Not the lilting delicacy we typically associate with the Legras wines.  This is more penetrating and impactful: like waves crashing over rocks.  Now – 2018.
