R&L Legras Grand Cru Blanc de Blancs NV

Posted by Mary John Baumann, DWS, Jun 4, 2012.

Dear Snooth Followers

For Champagne lovers lucky enough to live in the New York City area, there is a very special treat that awaits you.

The Blanc de Blancs Champagne House R&L Legras is carried exclusively by Sotheby's Wine, an impeccably appointed retail store on the corner of York Avenue and 72nd Street on the Upper East Side. In addition to top flight Bordeaux, Burgundy, California Icon Cabernet Sauvignon and classic Italian wines, Sotheby's has the best kept secret for champagne lovers who enjoy the delicacy, minerality and racy acidity of grand cru Blanc de Blancs - R&L Legras NV.

This is a vibrant,  mineral driven champagne jam packed with chalk, white floral aromas and subtle white fruit.  Retailing for a mere $29.95, it is the best kept secret in New York.

Grand cru Blanc de Blancs is a sublime wine sourced from the best sites in Le Mesnil sur Oger, Cramant, Avize, Chouilly and Oiry. 

In addition to Sotheby's Wine, you can find R&L Legras champagnes on the wine lists at top Michelin starred restaurants in Paris and beyond.

I look forward to hearing your thoughts on this remarkable champagne value.

Hey, how about some tasting notes, particularly thrown up against other non-mass-market BdB NVs?

Sounds good, but some context would help.

This is a tip on a great value, not a comparative tasting on Blanc de Blanc NV. I believe it will be very hard to come by the quality of R&L Legras at this price. Most other mid markets Blanc de Blancs start at $65.

Thats the real point....
