Worth the wait. Those the first words that sprang to mind when we cracked open a bottle of Champagne Lallier Blanc de Noirs, which retails for an extremely modest $67.99. This Champagne landed along with a large shipment which has been long awaited here at Regional Wines - and talk about punching above its weight. This is on our top shelf in store and if you're a PInot Noir fan, get in fast because it's sure to sell out, given the high quality and modest price ratio.
The Lallier Blanc de Noir is 100% Pinot Noir from 100% Grand Cru vineyards in la Montagne de Reims, Ay and Verzenay, all fermented with Champagne Lallier yeasts and given partial malolactic fermentation. The wine is made every year and is typically aged for between 48 to 60 months, depending on the style of the base wines made each year. It is then aged for a further four months before shipment. It's a dry style and tastes it with just 7 grams per litre of dosage (residual sugar). This is a full bodied, dry tasting wine with deliciously robust savoury flavours. Not a champagne for the faint hearted but one for those who adore high end Pinot Noir in all its variously delicious guises.
