Tasting Notes

A Lallier Vintage (Millesimé) is not declared every year and this is a Champagne of exhilarating freshness made slightly from more Pinot Noir than Chardonnay. Straw yellow with fine delightful bubbles. On the nose the toasty brioche notes are very traditional, in contrast to the slightly savoury and nutty, baked apple flavours which follow through to a crisp, complex and flavoursome finish.

Producer details

Champagne Lallier are a small family concern crafting Pinot Noir blends from their own (and some specially selected other) 'Grand Cru' vineyards in Ay - also home to Bollinger but Lallier's cellars are older, Avize, and Cramant. Classified as 100 out of 100, 'Grand Cru' vineyards are the crème de la crème of vineyard sites. Like Bollinger, Lallier's wines use a high proportion of Pinot Noir in their blends (the Rosé is 100% Pinot Noir), so with Champagne Lallier you get a Pinot Noir dominated blend from Grand Cru and Premier Cru sites - a rarity.

In the vineyard

The house of Lallier specialises in producing champagnes by sourcing exclusively from vineyards officially classified Grand Cru and Premier Cru. This vintage Champagne is a blend of Pinot Noir and Chardonny both selected from Grand Cru Aÿ.

In the winery

The provenance of the grapes enables a low dosage to express the purity and the richness of these terroirs. Using almost half Pinot Noir and Chardonnay grapes and with a 7g/L dosage, the bottles are matured on their lees and aged for 6 years in Lallier's underground cellars.

Food Recommendations

Pair with fish and scallops 'a la plancha', or chicken with a creamy or slightly spicy sauce.
