LALLIER BRUT ROSE 750ML
Champagne Lallier Grand Rosé combines 65% Pinot Noir and 35% Chardonnay, with depth and smoothness from partial malolactic fermentation, supported by the complexity of 8% reserve wines. This is a non vintage champagne which was aged for twice the minimum aging time required in the Champagne region - it spent three years on tirage (lees) which adds noticeable richness and toasty notes. It's a dry style with 8 grams of dosage at bottling.
About Champagne Lallier
Lallier was founded in 1906 by René Lallier, whose family owned and ran it until the company was purchased in 2004 by winemaker Francis Tibaut, who had worked for the family for many years and had a passion for these wines.
Tibaut purchased Lallier and he has now sold the company to Campari.
Lallier owns approximately 15 hectares of vineyards, mostly Grand Cru and mostly around the village of Ay, one of the Champagne region's key villages.
All Lallier champagnes are made solely from Pinot Noir and Chardonnay grapes. Production is 400,000 bottles annually.
* The letter R is for recolté, the French word for year.
