Champagne Lallier Millesime Grand Cru 2010 (6 x 750mL) Champagne

The 2010 wine campaign is calm and under water stress until August 15th. After a cold winter (rare frosts) and a dry spring, the soil has been subjected to hydric stress. MidJune, the flowering takes place. Summer temperatures set up early July. In midAugust, exceptional rains disturb the beginning of the veraison but supply the soil with water. Nevertheless, the vegetative cycle is favourable and is followed by a good ripening. Botrytis comes to settle on black grape varieties. We need to sort the berries of pinot noir that have been affected by rot. The chardonnay is slightly impacted by a microbial contamination, and we must not wait too long before picking it, but fortunately we are not affected in our vineyard of the Côte des Blancs. The harvest finally takes place from September 18th to 28th.

At the end, it is the House work during the vegetative and harvest cycle that rewards us. And the year 2010 gave us a beautiful vintage!

Winery Tasting Notes

Aspect - A pleasant golden colour which develops into shiny amber glints.

Nose - Its elegant nose suggests notes of fresh citrus and pears. The many years spent in our cellars enable us to appreciate beautifully matured aromas such as honey, torrefied notes and even mocha.

Palate - It’s a generous and complex wine that will please one’s senses where the freshness of chardonnay is immediately counterbalanced by the generosity of pinot noir.

A gorgeous Champagne and loyal companion of “the art of drinking and eating well”! It will sublimate the most delicious foods with a minimum of character such as a farmraised poultry or a strong coffee-based tiramisu.-
