R&L Legras

Although the origins of the Maison R&L Legras date back to the 16th century, it is from 1808 that its history takes a turn under the impetus of Honoré Legras, who sets out to develop one of the most beautiful vineyards of the Chouilly on the Côte des blancs commune.

Two centuries and six generations have now passed, and today the vineyard of Maison R&L Legras reaches a size of 5 hectares planted in Chardonnay and classified exclusively in Grand Cru. The soils are composed of chalk and limestone, conferring freshness and minerality to the vines that flourish there.

The Champagnes born of great know-how and highly recognized

The Champagne R&L Legras are elaborated with a permanent concern for precision and regularity, where tradition rubs shoulders with modernity, but they benefit above all from a constant attention thanks to a passion that is unfailing.

For several years now, the vintages of Maison R&L Legras have been recognized by the best gastronomic tables:

- Guy Savoie (Paris) ***
- Auberge de l'Ile ***
- L'Astrance (Paris) ***
- Maison Lameloise (Chagny en Bourgogne) ***
- Pavillon Ledoyen (Paris) ***
- Plaza Athenée (Paris) ***

Description RL Legras Evanescence 2015.

The year 2015 offered us a hot, Sec summer that caused water stress, but fortunately some welcome rains in August revived ripening progress. Pinot Noir suffered less than Chardonnay, which was much more heterogeneous, ranging from vegetal when harvested too early to heavy when harvested too late. The high minerality of the Chouilly terroir produced a very high-quality harvest.

This 100% chardonnay Grand Cru non dosé, Julien Barbier's latest creation, is just like the House's Champagnes Millésimés, seducing with its freshness, roundness and elegance.

La robe is pale golden yellow with a generous mousse of fine bubbles, a Maison hallmark. The nose is intense and powerful, with the greed of yellow and white summer fruits, as well as warm tarts. The palate is full, opulent yet taut, on candied citrus fruits, balanced by the freshness of the Chouilly terroir.

The 2015 Evanescence cuvée is the perfect accompaniment to tuna carpaccio with citrus fruits, and won't shy away from truffle risotto!
