6 x 75cl Lallier Grand Cru Vintage Brut 2010

France, Champagne

A Lallier Vintage (Millesimé) is not declared every year and this is a Champagne of exhilarating freshness made slightly from more Pinot Noir than Chardonnay. Straw yellow with fine delightful bubbles. On the nose the toasty brioche notes are very traditional, in contrast to the slightly savoury and nutty, baked apple flavours which follow through to a crisp, complex and flavoursome finish. A definite food Champagne. “

Origin

Lallier's cuvees are sourced almost exclusively from Grand Cru villages. The Champagne house holds 12 hectares of vineyards spread over 43 plots – of which 5 are in the famous Grand Cru vineyard of Aÿ and 3 in two Grand Crus in the Côte des Blancs.

Grape Variety

55% Pinot Noir 45% Chardonnay

Sourced exclusively from vineyards officially classified Grand Cru – Chardonnay from the Côtes des Blancs and Pinot Noir from Aÿ. The provenance of the grapes enables a low dosage to express the purity and the richness of these terroirs. Using almost half in half Pinot Noir and Chardonnay grapes alcoholic fermentation is with Lallier’s ‘in-house’ yeasts (cultivated from the Loridon vineyard) and the wine undergoes partial malo-lactic fermentation. With a 7g/L dosage, the bottles are matured on their lees and aged for more than 5 years in Lallier's old underground cellars. Disgorged in September 2016

Producer

Lallier are a small family enterprise under the stewardship of winemaker Francis Tribaut. The Lallier family has been based in Aÿ for five generations and founded the house of Champagne Lallier in 1906. In 2003, Francis Tribaut took over the running and winemaking of the estate and the quality and reputation has seen a significant enhancement in that period.

Francis has focused on the production of high quality Champagnes, founded on the distinctive and defined Aÿ Grand Cru Pinot Noir character and style. Today they produce around 350,000 bottles, so remain small and very focused.

Food Match

Pair with fish and scallops 'a la plancha', or chicken with a creamy or slightly spicy sauce. Also works with fruity desserts.
