This very special, single-vineyard wine from Emmanuel Lassaigne comes from vines planted in the 1960s. The top soil here is clay and silex with an under layer of chalk giving its distinct minerality to the wine. In fact, this vineyard highlights the unique-ness of Montgueux terroir, which has the clay of the Aube, also the chalk of the Côte des Blancs. Unlike Lassaigne's basic Montgueux, a portion of Le Cotet is raised in old barrel to allow the wine to see some oxygen during its élevage. The nose offers white flowers and orchard fruits, almond flesh, and stone. On the palate, you'll find fine bubbles, a creamy texture, and a long, chalk-laden finish.
