Lallier Grand Cru Champagne 2008 Vintage
- Champagne, France
Pinot Noir, Chardonnay
A pleasant pale gold amber colour; subtle, developed aromas of brioche, toasted bread and fresh butter. Fresh, complex and creamy in the mouth with delicate effervescence. This vintage Cuvee will enchant connoisseurs for aperitif, can replace afternoon tea for afficionados or be enjoyed over fish, poultry or soft flowery cheese. Uncork 30min before serving to allow the wine to open up and develop its aromas.
Champagne Lallier are a small family concern crafting Pinot Noir blends from their own (and some specially selected other) 'Grand Cru' vineyards in Aÿ - 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, so with Champagne Lallier you get a Pinot Noir dominated blend from Grand Cru and Premier Cru sites - a rarity.
