Subtly refreshing, this wine has a gracious generosity that kept our panelists going back to taste it again and again. It has a woodlands character, the fruit hinting at heirloom apples and fresh chanterelles, while the bubbles carry a beautiful chalkiness and brioche scents. Its clean, lingering richness will complement a range of foods, from oysters to meaty roast fish with chanterelles and cream.

The latest release of Lassaigne's NV Extra Brut Blanc de Blancs Les Vignes de Montgueux is a blend of the 2016, 2015 and 2014 vintages, and is disgorged à la volée without dosage. Offering up a lively bouquet of green apples, freshly baked bread, white peach and pastry cream, it's medium to full-bodied, taut and racy, with a lively spine of acidity, lovely purity and a long, searingly chalky finish. Lassaigne characterizes this as his "apéro" cuvée—modestly, as this makes for a decidedly serious apéritif.
