Legras & Haas

Legras & Haas is a 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 whom control 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.

Their house styles, Intuition Brut NV and Rosé Brut NV offer lovely concentration, poise, and elegance. But their primary focus is their diverse range of Blanc de Blancs Grand Cru’s which are impeccably made, complex, serious Champagnes, of which the Grand Cru status is really reflected in the quality. Upon tasting, we simply could not resist the opportunity to represent such fine cuvées in the UK.

Producer Fact SheetDetails

(Millésime L.T.S 2008) "A calm, steady mousse; refined aromas in which the fruit, bread and brioche of youth have given way to something deeper, stonier, more grounded in the natural world, the fruits calmed and sublimated, the acid profile rounded and smoothed while retaining all its energy. The 2008 vintage always promised much, though it was one which needed patience. That patience is amply rewarded in this pure, pristine, almost elemental wine." 98 points, Best in Show, Decanter World Wine Awards 2021
