Description

Legras & Haas is family-owned winery in Chouilly, in the heart of the Champagne region. Chouilly is a Grand Cru village in Côte des Blancs, just south of Epernay, that is responsible for producing some of the regions finest Chardonnay wines. Founded in 1991 by Brigitte Haas and François Legras, the estate is currently run and managed by their three sons Rémi, Olivier and Jérôme. Each of them controls different aspects of the business. They are the sixth generation of this family to grow grapes in Champagne, owning around 38 hectares here (18 of which are in Chouilly), they also buy grapes from a select few farmers in the region.

This is a classic Champagne house, traditional in nature, with a quest for perfection and an emphasis on soil preservation and terroir expression. They use first pressings only, taking the upmost care and attention in all aspects of the production of these wines. Working as a family has always been central to their approach, assisted by their house Oenologist Sébastien Struzik, all blending decisions are made together as a family.

Extra Brut (0-6 grams of sugar per litre) is bone dry, linear, super clean, feels compact at first but as you continue to drink the power builds on your palate. One of those wines that grows in presence and power. An elegant Chardonnay based wine which is serious and precise, yet approachable, with beautiful minerality and salinity and a persistent, long, long, long finish. Enjoy as an aperitif or for a delicious pairing match with seafood such as oysters, sea urchins or clams.
