Les Vignes de Montgueux is 100% Chardonnay from chalk soils with 40 cm of top soil which never sees herbicide and is never even mowed. Some of the wine ages in steel, some in mature wood. Owing to a slightly lower sugar (MCR) at prise de mouse, Emmanuel's wines have slightly lower atmospheres of pressure than typical Champagne. As of 2 years ago, he uses no dosage in any wines.
Pale straw in the glass with lovely mineral, dried fruit & citrus zest aromatics that reflect the purest expression of the Montgueux terroir. The palate is vibrantly alive with crisp citrus & melon flavors that are backed by deft acidity & dazzling minerality. The finish resonates with succulent citrus notes
