Lallier 2008 Grand Cru Brut Vintage
A definite food Champagne which is 'classic' Lallier. Made in the traditional way but with modern flavours.
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.
Grapes: Pinot Noir 55%, Chardonnay 45%
