Brigitte Haas saw a job opening in the newspaper in the 1960s and got a job at the Champagne House as a multilingual officer. She worked for about a year and a half and fell in love with a small universe of champagne developing her passion for wine. In 1974 she bought a vineyard for the first time at Epernay and started getting training in viticulture.
Eventually, she established Domaine in 1983, which became the cornerstone of establishing Legras et Haas with Francois Legras in 1991.
Today, Rémi, Olivier, and Jérôme, the three brothers from the Legras family, are making well-balanced wine at Legras et Haas Champagne House.
The core of the house identity is ‘transparency.’ They have the winemaking philosophy of expressing terroir until the grapes are bottled. Rather than following the trend of the champagne market, it is to make wine that manifests the essence of terroir. For Legras brothers, harvest is the process of accepting grapes from nature and the process of manifesting nature as it is.
Winemaker Jérôme Legras is the youngest among the three brothers and joined the House late at the age of 24. Just like gastronomy presents distinct features in every country, he believes champagne also presents various experiences. The Blanc de Blancs Grand Cru 1990 that he drank at a young age ignited his passion for champagne and prompted him to pursue its special and complex beauty. He is making accessible wine expressing the pure and delicate beauty of Chardonnay at the same time.
