The 2012 Presidence is one of the best Champagnes Legras has ever made, and acter countless bottles in 750s and magnums. It has become one of our all-time favorite Champagnes and has gotten a massive amount of positive feedback from clients who have tried a bottle. The Presidence is a bottle that has only gotten better with time, and our most recent experience was sensational and one of the best bottles of 2012 Presidence we have ever had. R.L. Legras decided not to bottle their Tete de Cuvee, Saint-Vincent in 2012, the same decision they made in 2002. Instead, they bottled all their old vine plots from the grand cru village of Chouilly in their Presidence Vielles Vignes bottling. Was this the right decision? Maybe not, but you are getting the same wine as St. Vincent at about 30% less money. Truly a stunning bottle of bubbles, with incredible purity of fruit, laser-focused acidity, expressive minerality, and fantastic balance. One of our favorite cuvees, not just from Legras but all time, and still one of the best buys for excellent Blanc de Blancs Champagne ever.
