Coteaux Champenois Blanc Haut Revers du Chutat is a natural, ecological, biodynamic and vegan barrel-aged white wine made with the Chardonnay variety by Jacques Lassaigne in the AOC Coteaux Champenoise denomination in Champagne.
Jacques Lassaigne is a small winery located in the town of Montgueux, near Troyes. His working philosophy goes like this: “Each step is a detail. One detail doesn’t change anything. But all details together make a big difference” and Emmanuel Lassaigne works hard with this in mind to promote the Montgueux area. To do this, he changed the way the family business was run and stopped selling from the front door. Instead, he began making unique, exquisite wines that can now be found in the best restaurants.
Jacques Lassaigne Coteaux Champenois Blanc Haut Revers du Chutat comes from vines planted in 1968 on top of a south-facing limestone hillside. This area has typical chalk soils and the Chardonnay variety is cultivated without the use of chemical products, instead using organic and biodynamic treatments.
In the winery, the grapes used to make Jacques Lassaigne Coteaux Champenois Blanc Haut Revers du Chutat grapes are vinified separately by plot. Only sulphur is added during pressing and the must ferments spontaneously with native yeasts. The wine is then aged in old vats and a 500-litre barrel for 22 months. It is bottled without clarifying or filtering.
Known as a promoter of unique and unusual wines, Emmanuel Lassaigne produces Jacques Lassaigne Coteaux Champenois Blanc Haut Revers du Chutat as yet another example of his love for previously unrecognised terroirs. Acidity and minerality in perfect harmony.
