Champagne Lallier Millesime 2012 Grand Cru 75cl
The 2010 vintage has been aged for 60 months and is made up of 45% Chardonnay and 55% Pinot Noir grapes. Since 1906, LALLIER is a craft manufacture of prestigious crus de Champagne. Our 2010 Vintage is pure, without any artifice. Thanks to its 100% Grands Crus blend of chardonnays from the Côte des Blancs and pinots noirs from Aÿ and Verzenay. It reflects the essence of the 2010 harvest. A sumptuous vintage champagne!
The 2010 harvest was made after a cold winter (rare frosts) and a dry spring, the soil has been subjected to hydric stress. Mid-June, the flowering takes place. Summer temperatures set up early July. In mid-August, exceptional rains disturb the beginning of the veraison but supply the soil with water. Nevertheless, the vegetative cycle is favourable and is followed by a good ripening. Botrytis comes to settle on black grape varieties. We need to sort the berries of pinot noir that have been affected by rot. The chardonnay is slightly impacted by a microbial contamination, and we must not wait too long before picking it, but fortunately we are not affected in our vineyard of the Côte des Blancs. The harvest finally takes place from September 18th to 28th. At the end, it is the House work during the vegetative and harvest cycle that rewards us. And the year 2010 gave us a beautiful vintage!
