LALLIER R.015 BRUT MAGNUM
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.
Champagne Lallier R015
R015 is a blend of 62% Pinot Noir and 38% Chardonnay, 81% of the grapes grown in 2015, with the balance being reserve wines which are two to three years old on average. The name R015 refers to the vintage from which the majority of the grapes in the wine come; it's all about transparency in grape source.
Dosage of 8 grams per litre and 85% Grand Cru vineyards make this wine an outstanding expression of very good quality champagne.
We love its toasty, rich, dry flavours and depth.
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.
