Winemaker Notes

Pascal Lallement's Brut Champagne is exactly the wine one would expect from a top village in the Montagne de Reims. Organically farmed Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier makeup the base of this attractive sparkler with 25% Chardonnay providing its bright acidity. The 48-60 months spent on the lees lends a fresh-baked bread aroma 'a la' Bollinger, with a lively green apple, quince, and meyer lemon component.  Great depth and complexity with a pleasing citrus finish.

In the glass, Lallement’s Premier Cru Brut displays a light golden core with slight gold and green reflections at the rim, with a fine ‘bead’ (string of bubbles). The intense and creamy nose charms with aromas of rising brioche, baked apple croissant, lemon curd, honeysuckle, crushed hazelnut, a bouquet of white flowers, crushed chalk, and an underlying hint of redcurrant. It is full-bodied by Champagne standards and coats the palate with creamy, round notes of hazelnut purée, sweet apple, spun honey, and rising bread dough.

The dense opulence and vinous texture is exquisitely checked by fresh acidity, fine bubbles, and terroir-driven minerality. Alluring as it is right now, this could effortlessly age another 3-5 years if kept well. For instant gratification, simply pull from the fridge, pop the cork and wait 10 minutes prior to serving. Do not pour this wine into tall, thin flutes or the aromatics will be subdued and the experience will be akin to going to the opera with a pair of earmuffs. Opt instead for all-purpose stems or open-mouthed Champagne glasses for optimal results. 

Pair with no-foil roast chicken with lemon and garlic. 

Blend: 75% Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier, and 25% Chardonnay
