Legend Vineyard Exclusive (LVE) is a unique collaboration between pop icon John Legend and JC Boisset. Sourcing the southern French region of Languedoc to blend primarily grenache (57%), syrah, cinsault and carignan. Clay, sandstone and limestone soils offer unique characteristics, and the grapes are vinified separately in addition to the use of only free-run and first-press juice to add to the complexity. All stainless steel for fermentation and aging enhances the freshness of the fruit. Pale pink color leads to fresh raspberry, strawberry and granny smith apple flavors. A great reminder of how good a classic French rosé can be.

The 2021 Bienvenues-Bâtard-Montrachet Grand Cru is slightly more oxidative in style compared to the Bâtard-Montrachet, with grilled walnut and a subtle florlike scent emerging with time. The palate is balanced with a vibrant opening. It has a little more horsepower than the Bâtard-Montrachet and a spicier finish. This gains intensity in the glass and does eventually overtake the Bâtard.

The 2021 Charlemagne Grand Cru comes from two parcels, the En Charlemagne lieu-dit picked a week after Le Charlemagne. This has one of my favourite noses from Vougeraie; it's quite refined and complex, more mineraldriven with hints of dried white flowers. The palate is well balanced with a tangy opening, fresh and crisp with a touch of bitter lemon and orange rind towards the finish. This should age well in bottle and conveys a sense of class.
