Tasting Notes

A fresh and full-bodied champagne with balance and finesse. Elegant with ample citrus fruit flavours and aromas. This 100% Chardonnay (Blanc de Blancs) has been beautifully crafted using the very best Grand Cru grapes from Aÿ and La Côte des Blancs.

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. 2/3 of this 100% Chardonnay wine is comprised of an assemblage of grapes sourced from Aÿ with the third sourced from La Côte des Blancs.

In the winery

The provenance of the grapes enables a low dosage to express the purity and the richness of these terroirs. With a dosage of 8g/L, the bottles are matured on their lees in chalk cellars for 36 -48 months. The wine is then left to rest for 3 - 5 months between disgorgement and shipping.

Food Recommendations

Fantastic as an aperitif but equally wonderful with grilled fish and seafood.

In the press

NV: "Rich and creamy, featuring ripe apricot, pineapple and coconut notes, underscored by smoky minerality and accents of lemon meringue pie and pureed apple. Mouthwatering, with a lasting finish of toasted hazelnut. Drink now through 2018. 92 Points." Alison Napjus, Wine Spectator Nov 2013
