Tasting Notes: An extremely classy and exhilarating glass of wine. A champagne of exhilarating freshness, complexity and finesse, made from approximately two thirds Pinot Noir and one third Chardonnay, matured in bottle on its lees for 24-36 months. The result is a Champagne with a pale lemon colour, good steady fizz, and a powerful typical 'bready' Champagne
nose. On the palate it is a big complex wine, quite vinous with lots of mouthfeel followed by a long, dry 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. The Pinot Noir is sourced from the Grand Cru Aÿ and the Chardonnay from the Grand Crus of Avise and Cramant in the Côte de Blancs.

In The Winery: The provenance of the grapes enables a low dosage to express the purity and the richness of these terroirs. Using approximately 2/3 Pinot Noir and 1/3 Chardonnay wine and a 9g/L dosage, the bottles are matured on their lees in chalk cellars for 24-36 months.
