Lelarge-Pugeot, 'Blanc des Blancs' 1er Cru, Extra Brut NV, Champagne, France

£33.00

Exceptional Champagne made from a historical grower of top Premier Cru vineyard fruit. You will struggle to find a better Blanc des Blancs Champagne at this price... absolutely stunning Extra Brut style. Dry, classy, crisp, and with velvet like bubbles.

Very elegant, refined, and one of our favourites, citrus, pear and peach aromas dominate the nose. All wrapped up with superb balance and finesse. Perfect with foods like canapes, lobster, crab, or even rich chicken or deep-fried dishes. 100% Chardonnay leading to a fresher, crisper champagne style.

The Lelarge-Pugeot house was funded in 1799 by Pierre-Henri Lelarge, and while at first were mainly quality grape growers, then first bottled their wines in 1930. In 1985, Dominique Lelarge took over his family estate and decided to go towards a more sustainable farming approach. The realization of how dangerous the use of pesticide is to nature and mankind was a wake-up call. This started his commitment to reducing the use of any chemical product in the vineyard. The estate is synonymous with quality, and responsibility, with a growing reputation.
