Lallier Blanc de Blancs Grand Cru
Lallier Série R is born from a creative winemaking philosophy, driven by nature, sincerity and curiosity. Playing transparency by displaying its base year on the label, Série R is a Reflection on a specific year. It captures the purest nature of Champagne terroir individuality and interprets it each year through a renewed expression. The R.016, based on the 2016 vintage, is the perfect balance of Lallier signature emotions: Freshness, Purity, Depth, Intensity.
On the eye: The bubble is very fine, delicate and persistent. Nice eggshell color, soft yellow with some golden highlights.
On the nose: Notes of fresh citrus (lemon, kumquat) and white flowers dominate. The Fruitiness is present with yellow peach and fresh pear. Some notes of hazelnut and almond complete the aromatic intensity.
On the palate: The attack is frank, lively and direct. The midpalate is dominated by the freshness of the citrus aromas. Then the finish is marked by the depth and length of the acidity associated with a very silky texture.
Enjoy for aperitifs or for starting a meal, with raw vegetables, fresh goat cheese, shellfish or raw fish.
