Champagne Lallier, Grand Cru Grande Reserve Brut NV
Pinot Noir 65%, Chardonnay 35%
With great complexity and finesse, this has an energising, citrusy palate and delivers an equal measure of ripe, toasty fruit followed by a tasty, elegant finish.
The house of Lallier specialises in producing champagnes by sourcing exclusively from vineyards officially classified Grand Cru and Premier Cru. This is 100% Grand Cru, the Pinot Noir is sourced from the Grand Cru A� and the Chardonnay from the Grand Crus of Avize and Cramant in the C�te de Blancs. 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.
Founded in A� in 1906 Champagne Lallier has significant holdings of Grand Cru vineyards and a high tech cellar, yet is wholly owned by winemaker Francis Tribaut. Free to craft wine in the spirit of an artisan domaine, Francis vinifies each parcel separately using a �house� yeast and keeps dosage low to create Champagnes with real character and finesse.
