Tasting Notes

Attractive aromas of fresh fruits, citrus fruit and honey. Well balanced with good structure and an appealing freshness.

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 vineyards, situated in the southern reaches of Troyes achieve greater ripeness which leads to a richer fruit and classic baked biscuit flavours mixed with characteristic toasty yeast overtones.

In the winery

Francis has gone back to first principles: like most other wines the world over, a non-vintage champagne is principally the product of one vintage; but unlike most other wines, it is blended with ‘reserve wine’ of previous vintages to give depth and elegance to what would otherwise be an underdeveloped youthful sensation on the palate, as champagne needs time and some maturity to pour forth its full brilliance.

Food Recommendations

R Series will complement robust salty amuse-bouches, followed by turbot with a creamy seafood sauce or poultry with morel mushrooms. Desserts made from peaches or apricots would well, as would a goats cheese.
