LALLIER MILLESIME 2012 750ML
The 2012 Lallier Millesime spent an impressive 60 months aging on lees following its second fermentation in bottle; it's a blend of 55% Pinot Noir and 45% Chardonnay, full of flavour, smooth and creamy in mouthfeel with 7 grams dosage per litre, which means it tastes crisp, fresh and dry in style. At 8 years old, this is drinking superbly right now and has more time up its sleeve, for those who like even richer, toastier flavours in their champagnes.
Champagne Lallier is our house champagne here at Regional Wines and, as such, it's one we're very proud of because we believe these wines all punch above their weight and cost significantly less than their quality suggests.
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 now owns Lallier and makes the wines, sourcing 40% of his grapes from the company's own 15 hectares of vineyards, which are mostly Grand Cru and mostly around the village of Ay, one of the Champagne region's key villages. He uses no pesticides or herbicides on his own vineyards and in the winemaking, he often creates his own yeast strains from the vineyards.
All Lallier champagnes are made solely from Pinot Noir and Chardonnay grapes. Production is 400,000 bottles annually.
