93pts Wine & Spirits

Barely a rosé, this wine shares the misty, cloudlike, red fruit transparency of the Zéro Dosage. Here the fruit hints at floral peach and orange zest, a touch of juicy richness filling it out. It’s clean and fragrant, with pale intensity.

91pts Wine Enthusiast

This is a concentrated, full-bodied wine, full of sweeps of red fruits that are beautifully balanced by the citrus acidity. It is an appealing Champagne to drink now, although with its youthful acidity it will age into a ripe, mellow wine.

90pts Wine Spectator

Open-knit and balanced, featuring flavors of white cherry, pickled ginger, apple, toast, mineral-tinged chalk and smoke. Fresh, with a subtle finish. Drink now. 600 cases imported.

Winemaker Notes

80% Pinot Noir and 20% Chardonnay, the Lallier Rosé is almost all grand cru juice. Grand Cru grapes from the areas of Aÿ, Bouzy and Avize are blended with Premier Cru grapes from Mareuil sur Aÿ to create this delightful, yet intense champagne. A blend of 80% current vintage wine with 20% reserve wine, it sees 10 g/L dosage and is matured for 24 to 36 months in their cellars, after which it will rest five months between disgorgement and shipping. A brilliant yet pale salmon-pink color introduces charming aromas of wild strawberries and baguette. Racy yet balanced, this elegant champagne will delight the senses.
