Laurent Lequart N.V. L'Heritiere, Champagne Extra Brut

This house has a philosophy of leaving the wines “en tirage” for an extended period and using a serious
proportion of reserve wines. In this case, we are looking at a base of 60% 2012, with the balance coming from
the two previous years. “L’Héritière” is Lequart’s ambassadorial wine, designed to show what the assemblage
of Champagne’s three main grapes can achieve in Passy-Grigny (they make an entry-level Meunier that is
excellent but less compelling). Fine mousse, toasty nose, perfectly judged dosage (6 gm.) and delicious flavor.
