From Champagne, France
Based in Ay, a Grand Cru Village close to Epernay, Champagne Lallier is founded on the ‘Art of Eating and drinking well’, which they apply through a vintage-based approach for all their cuvees: 80% minimum of the base vintage for a clear identity and allowing for great versatility on food pairing. Such a gastronomic approach rewards the House with a presence on many Michelin star tables around the world.
One of the rare houses headed by the winemaker, the Cuvées are crafted exclusively with Chardonnay and Pinot Noir in Grand Cru vineyards, leading to a style of finesse and precision for ultimate drinking enjoyment.
