Winemaker Notes

Delicate, effervescent pale pink color. On the first nose licorice flavors appear which characterize Pinot Noir with a good maturity. Then red fruit fragrances of strawberry and cherry appear in a subtly sweet and sensual way. On the palate a very fine taste of mineral (saline) is expressed. A balance occurs between the slight astringency and the crystallinity linked to the composition of the wine. The roundness gives it a nice personality.

W&S 95
Wine & Spirits
This is made in the traditional oeil de perdrix style, prevalent in Champagne before Dom Pérignon and his contemporaries began sorting out the press fractions. The blend includes 85 percent pinot noir, almost all of it direct pressed, producing a wine with the kind of pale pink color that’s hard to resist. There’s a whisper of tangy, forest-fresh wild strawberries in a brisk, cool springtime scent. The texture is delicate, with creaminess that’s light and ethereal.
RP 92
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The NV Brut Rose Premier Cru stands out for its vibrant, direct personality. Deceptively pale in color, the NV Brut Rose Premier Cru presents a tense, vibrant expression of fruit that is highly appealing. Sweet floral notes develop later, but ultimately this is a wine build on acidity and minerality. Lassalle’s Rose is striking in its beauty and purity.
WS 91
Wine Spectator
Hints of smoke and pastry underscore the ripe raspberry and white cherry fruit in this vibrant rosé, with a lively bead. Well-balanced, featuring hints of lemon meringue, licorice drop and roasted nut on the finish.

This small, family owned Champagne house is run by a mother-daughter team, dedicated to the ancient methods of champagne making taught to them by the late Jules Lassalle, husband and father. There is great attention to detail here, beginning with healthy grapes and low yields; a leisurely malolactic fermentation which adds depth and balance, and resistance to excessive pumping and filtration to preserve delicacy.

Associated with luxury, celebration, and romance, the region, Champagne, is home to the world’s most prized sparkling wine. In order to bear the label, ‘Champagne’, a sparkling wine must originate from this northeastern region of France—called Champagne—and adhere to strict quality standards. Made up of the three towns Reims, Épernay, and Aÿ, it was here that the traditional method of sparkling wine production was both invented and perfected, birthing a winemaking technique as well as a flavor profile that is now emulated worldwide.

Well-drained, limestone and chalky soil defines much of the region, which lend a mineral component to its wines. Champagne’s cold, continental climate promotes ample acidity in its grapes but weather differences from year to year can create significant variation between vintages. While vintage Champagnes are produced in exceptional years, non-vintage cuvées are produced annually from a blend of several years in order to produce Champagnes that maintain a consistent house style.

With nearly negligible exceptions, . These can be blended together or bottled as individual varietal Champagnes, depending on the final style of wine desired. Chardonnay, the only white variety, contributes freshness, elegance, lively acidity and notes of citrus, orchard fruit and white flowers. Pinot Noir and its relative Pinot Meunier, provide the backbone to many blends, adding structure, body and supple red fruit flavors. Wines with a large proportion of Pinot Meunier will be ready to drink earlier, while Pinot Noir contributes to longevity. Whether it is white or rosé, most Champagne is made from a blend of red and white grapes—and uniquely, rosé is often produce by blending together red and white wine. A Champagne made exclusively from Chardonnay will be labeled as ‘blanc de blancs,’ while ones comprised of only red grapes are called ‘blanc de noirs.’

What are the different types of Champagne and sparkling wine?

Beloved for its lively bubbles, sparkling wine is the ultimate beverage for any festivity, whether it's a major celebration or a mere merrymaking of nothing much! Sparkling wine is made throughout the winemaking world, but only can be called “Champagne” if it comes from the Champagne region of France and is made using what is referred to as the "traditional method." Other regions have their own specialties—Crémant in other parts of France, Cava in Spain and Prosecco in Italy, to name a few. New World regions like California, Australia and New Zealand enjoy the freedom to make many styles, with production methods and traditions defined locally. In a dry style, Champagne and sparkling wine goes with just about any type of food. Sweet styles are not uncommon and among both dry and sweet, you'll find white, rosé—or even red!—examples.

How is Champagne and sparkling wine made?

Champagne, Crémant, Cava and many other sparkling wines of the world are made using the traditional method, in which the second fermentation (the one that makes the bubbles) takes place inside the bottle. With this method, spent yeast cells remain in contact with the wine during bottle aging, giving it a creamy mouthful, toasted bread or brioche qualities and in many cases, the capacity to age. For Prosecco, the carbonation process usually occurs in a stainless steel tank (before bottling) to preserve the fresh fruity and floral aromas imminent in this style.

What gives Champagne and sparkling wine its bubbles?

The bubbles in sparkling wine are formed when the base wine undergoes a secondary fermentation, which traps carbon dioxide inside the bottle or fermentation vessel.

How do you serve Champagne and sparkling wine?

Ideally for storing Champagne and sparkling wine in any long-term sense, it should be at cellar temperature, about 55F. For serving, cool Champagne and sparkling wine down to about 40F to 50F. (Most refrigerators are colder than this.) As for drinking Champagne and sparkling wine, the best glasses have a stem and flute or tulip shape to allow the bead (bubbles) to show.

How long does Champagne and sparkling wine last?

Most sparkling wines like Prosecco, Cava or others around the “$20 and under” price point are intended for early consumption. Wines made using the traditional method with extended cellar time before release can typically improve with age. If you are unsure, definitely consult a wine professional for guidance.
