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 Aÿ and the Chardonnay from the Grand Crus of Avize and Cramant in the Côte 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, and a 9g/L dosage, the bottles are matured on their lees in chalk cellars for 24-36 months.
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.
