LALLIER MILLÉSIMÉS

Hand-crafted champagne expressions by our Cellar Master as an ode to the harvest of an outstanding year.

INTRODUCTION

THE
COLLECTION

Lallier Millésimés collection features the most elevated experiences of Champagne terroir individuality; extraordinary wines made up exclusively of the most well-balanced juices of a given year, using the finest grapes from the greatest terroirs to offer the best the vines have to offer. Each Lallier Millesimé reflects the encounter of a handle of magnificent Grand Crus – among which, Verzenay, Aÿ, Bouzy, Ambonnay, Avize, Cramant, Chouilly and Oger – from two regions: Côte des Blancs and Montagne de Reims.

MILLÉSIMÉ : PAST AND PRESENT

Since 1999, Lallier has released nine Millésimé blends, each reflecting the highest excellence of a remarkable year. Each Millésimé offers a slightly different character based on the harvest, but upholds the balance of purity, intensity, freshness and depth that makes it a definitive Lallier Champagne. Currently, the Lallier Millésimé 2014 is available for purchase.

    “2014 was a comparatively warm year, especially in the spring and during the ripening period. After a capricious summer, the harvest thrived in ideal climatic conditions – sunny, slightly warm days contrasted with perfectly cool, dry nights. Thanks to excellent quantity of grapes, the team was able to use qualitative sorting, bringing only the best grapes to the presses.” – Cyrille Diniz, lead oenologist

MILLÉSIMÉ 2012

Champagne Lallier

2012 was a challenging year for the Champagne region. The vine growing season was stuck with frost & mildew; however, the grapes that survived these climatic incidents reached a beautiful maturity during the harvest. Lallier rose to the challenge, while the vintage was small in volume, it made for exceptional quality and a highly sought-after offering.

HOW TO DRINK MILLÉSIMÉ

  • icon

    THE RIGHT GLASS

    The ideal Milésimé Champagne glass slowly releases the bouqet of scents and effervescence of the liquid. It sits between a flute and a wine glass: a long leg, wide bowl, and a narrow opening.

  • icon

    THE RIGHT TEMPERATURE

    To reveal the full potential of this Champagne, serving temperature should sit between 12°C and 14°C. Anything colder will limit the wine’s full expression.
