François Legras was born into a family with four centuries of grape growing experience, and has never left Chouilly, the place where he was born in 1937. Francois founded Legras et Haas in 1991, and the estate is now run by his three children, Rémi, Olivier and Jérôme Legras, who work together to craft genuine and balanced wines.
Chouilly, the most northern Grand Cru village in the Côte des Blancs, is the birthplace of the Legras-Haas family and the foundation of their wines. The family cultivates 18 hectares of vines in these outstanding hills. With its 35 parcels spread out in almost all of the village areas, the family’s estate offers an extraordinary diversity of Chardonnay styles. Chouilly benefits from a primarily Eastern and Northern exposure with gently sloping hillsides and lowlands which impart richness and strength to the wines.
