Champagne Jacques Lassaigne is a specialist chardonnay grower run by Emmanuel Lassaigne, son of Jacques. He has been at the helm of the 4.7 hectare family vineyard in the village of Montgueux, located in the Aube département, since 1999. Emmanuel turned the House from a grape seller into a grower-producer that makes remarkable wines from individual vinified parcels; retaining their very distinct characteristics. In the vineyard chemical use is avoided, even those permitted to support organic viticulture. In the winery sulphur is only added when pressing, there’s no fining or filtration, disgorgement is by hand and always with zero dosage. The sole goal and focus of the House is precise expression of terroir.
