LALLIER OUVRAGE GRAND CRU 750ML
Champagne Lallier Ouvrage is a blend of 60% Pinot Noir and 40% Chardonnay, each coming, respectively from Le Meurtet Vineyard in Ay and Les Hureaux Vineyard in Oger. It was fermented with Lallier yeasts and blended with 20% reserve wines. The final wine was bottled with 3 grams dosage per litre, making it an extra brut style.
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.
