Jacques Lassaigne, La Colline Inspirée


Bone dry, zero dosage, crisp, mineral, super chalky, stony at first, only slowly releasing its full fruit potential, but then seducing you with flavours of toasted almonds, apricots etc. Chardonnay, made from top quality grapes, aged in old jurassic oak barrels Manu sourced from his buddy FanFan. The bubbles come on top – as an extra – as does the impact of the autolyse, the ageing on fine lees. But without a doubt, this wine would taste wonderful even if it had lost all of the sparkles.
