Lallier Grand Cru Rosé NV

£32.00 a bottle

This is a richer style of rosé, but there is lovely balance and texture here accompanied by bright soft red fruit flavours, even a hint of cherry. Pale in colour but full of flavour; fine toasty, brioche overlay and a racy finish.

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. Lallier focus solely on Pinot Noir and Chardonnay, not using Pinot Meunier in any of their blends.

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.

Grape Variety

80% Pinot Noir and 20% Chardonnay.

The Pinot Noir is sourced from Aÿ and Bouzy, while the Chardonnay is from the prestigious Grand Cru Avize in the Côte des Blancs. The rosé is produced via skin contact with the Pinot Noir for a short period. The blend is made up of 20% reserve wines and is aged for 48 months on lees.

Food Match

Although both Lallier Champagnes in our list make a fine aperitif, there is real weight and structure with them which means they will work with delicate shellfish dishes – most traditionally oysters – also sushi.

Suitable for vegetarians & vegans.
