Legras & Haas Les Sillons 2015
Harvested from a single vineyard in the very north of the Côte des Blancs, this wine shows wonderful freshness and tension and, whilst it would cellar well, it's ideal now showing lovely dried tropical fruits and exotic elements. It's really precise and simply utterly delicious. This is one of the most on point 2015s I have had in a long time. Everything is perfectly in place with no sense of the struggles of the vintage. The finish balances the oak use with a lovely richness of fruit.
One of the absolute gems of the village of Chouilly. Established in 1991 and run by the three brothers; Remi, Olivier and Jerome Legras they work with 18 hectares in Chouilly alone and have holdings in Vitry, Les Riceys and Ay. Their range is all fantastic but is all fantastic with their wines ageing gracefully into their 3rd decade but they are also pushing the boundaries with some fantastic single vineyard wines and a brilliant Chardonnay/Pinot Noir blend from Chouilly and Ay, with wines made from a blend of over 10 vintages.
