Details

Winemaker Notes:  Jules Lassalle established this family-owned Champagne house in 1942 in the village of Chigny-Les-Roses on the Montagne de Reims. His daughter and granddaughter, Chantal and Angéline, now run the domaine, following the same strictly-traditional standards Jules established. They use the same wooden basket press he installed in the winery over fifty years ago, pressing and vinifying the individual plots separately. It is one of the rare Champagnes that has been allowed to finish its malolactic fermentation, just like the great whites from the Côte d’Or. Every bottle is riddled by hand, and all cuvées are aged extensively once in bottle. This traditional blend of Chardonnay, Pinot Meunier and Pinot Noir is best for luxuriant dishes, like lobster bisque baked en croûte.

CRITICAL ACCLAIM


Vinous - "The NV Préférence is an attractive, open-knit Champagne to drink now and over the next few years. Candied lemon, white flowers, mint, white pepper and pear give the Préférence its distinctive, bright personality, an impression that is reinforced by the wine's subtle mousse and refined feel. This is a very pretty, subtle Champagne from Lassalle."


Wine Spectator - "A lively Champagne in an aperitif style, with crunchy acidity and a delicate bead supporting hints of ripe Honeycrisp apple, orchard blossom, pickled ginger and chalk. Drink now. 1,600 cases imported."
