Jacques Lassaigne has 4.7 hectares of vines situated in Montgueux (Aube). It is one of Champagne's underdog regions though historically was referred to as Montrachet de Champagne. Their soils are limestone-rich, similar to those in Mesnil. Jacques’ son Emmanuel is now at the helm and has made the radical decision to bottle wines from individual parcels. Only native yeasts are used and all disgorgements are done by hand - a practice that is very uncommon in the region.

"Due to be disgorged commercial a few weeks after I tasted it was the 2010 Brut Nature Blanc des Blancs Millésime, a vintage that Lassaigne described as characterized by 'very high maturity' and which was vinified entirely in tank. Offering up aromas of lemon oil, green apple, warm bread and chalky soil tones, it's full-bodied, ample and vinous, with chewy dry extract and a fleshy core, crisp acids and a long, saline finish. Once again, it's a blend of Les Paluets, Le Cotet and La Grande Côte, Lassaigne commenting that it always tends to come from the same parcels. 95 points" - William Kelley (Wine Advocate, August 2019)
