I am busy but I wish I could spend a very long time writing about how special this champagne is. It's one of my favourites in the shop and it's possible that it is my number one favourite. It is finessed delight hailing from the heavens. Montgueux is very far south in Champagne, even more south than the area in Champagne that most people considered south! Chardonnay prince Emmanuel Lassaigne (Jacques son) started bottling single vineyard champagne in the late 90's and his neighbours glared at him, called him a fool! Amidst many champagnes I would consider beautiful in their own right, this one really glows.
Please note, all orders come with a bag of chips!
