Lallier Loridon Grand Cru Brut
Loridon is 100% Chardonnay champagne made from grapes grown on a 1.6 hectare Grand Cru vineyard called Loridon, which is situated in Ay.
The base wine was fermented with Lallier yeasts then treated to a partial malolactic fermentation and the wine was aged on tirage for over three years then bottled as an extra brut style with three grams dosage per litre.
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.
