Tasting Notes

It’s the green label, and when it’s on form there’s no other Champagne like it, and very few as good. Its signature flavor is applecellar, buttered nuts, sorrel and mead, and if that sounds unusual, it is. Yet it’s so refined and crystalline that you’re gobsmacked with the purest ornery terroir alongside the finest texture you can imagine. Disg. 9/2016, it’s 80% 2013 and 20% 2012, and as always 80-20 PN-CH. And Lallement’s ba-a-a-ck! A classic beauty in its gorgeous silky terroir-saturated style; compellingly lopsided, with more character than a dozen other wines combined. Be the first to discover how freakin’ amazing this is again. The most absurdly complex finish —Terry Theise
