Champagne Legros-Bayo Premier Cru Blanc de Blanc
This Premier Cru from Vertus (located in the famous Cote Des Blancs) is as lively and vibrant as a non-vintage brut should be, but without too much acidity. It has a green-gold colour and a floral nose. The palate is just as attractive - direct, precise and intense.
Type of Wine: Non-vintage Brut
Variety: 100% Chardonnay
Aging: Aged on the lees for 2 to 3 years (NV wines usually are kept only 1 year)
Food pairing: We recommend you have this beautiful champagne as an aperitif before dinner or with shellfish, oysters. Since this is a blanc de blanc we would not recommend having it with sweets/desserts (keep an old champagne vintage for that purpose)
What is a "Blanc de Blanc champagne"?
In Champagne, the term Blanc de Blancs designates Champagnes made only from Chardonnay grapes. The vineyards located between in Cote des Blancs yield the best examples of the style.
A classic Blanc de Blancs is restrained and elegant when young, yet with ageing it develops a mouth-coating brioche richness that overlays an intense expression of fruitiness. Blanc de Blancs are endowed with longer ageing potential than a typical Blanc de Noirs.
