An annual “Réflexion” from the cellar master
Lallier Réflexions was born with R.010 – as a Réflexion around the 2010 harvest and released globally in 2014. This cuvée is a deep reflection of a specific annual harvest. A Champagne that defied the conventions of the Champagne Brut Non-Vintage category by favoring the expression of the base wine over taste consistency, ‘Réflexions’ perfectly captures our winemaking ethos – one that believes that Champagne should be reflective of its terroir, both in quality and character. As a result, we encounter new subtle notes every year. A pure quest for excellence and sincerity towards what nature brings each year.

Lallier Réflexions is the emblem of the house’s signature style. Purity & Freshness are

touch: Intensity and Depth, carefully cultivated by the Cellar Master and his
team through vinification in wooden barrels, long aging on lees and the use of bespoke
