Remembering when this was only bottled in magnum: lean & fresh but toasty to balance, serious value in grower bubbles, too

Jacques Lassaigne's La Colline Inspirée Extra Brut twitches with a kind of energetic tension, like a muscular show horse. The color of straw, with a fine, prickly mousse it offers up notes of orange peel, quince, flint, and smoke. Sporting a lovely cut, bracing acidity, and clean, focused notes of white grapefruit, mandarin orange, and stony termination. No. L101012 | 12% ABV

WOW, what a nose, the oxidation is really noticeable with obvious savory and vinegar like aromas. Not likely everyone's cup of tea, but very individual and distinctive in style. I like or and want to find out more...

Snap, crackle, pop. Intensely mineral and chewy.
