Lassalle Cuvee Rosé Reserve Grande Annee Brut
It is a caress going down! Lassalle’s Champagne Rosé is very pale in color with strawberry and raspberry perfume in the subtle bouquet. No, it doesn’t shout, and red wine was not added to color it. It grows on you - a connoisseur’s rosé, and it is bone dry! Kermit Lynch
10% pinot Meunier, 75% pinot noir and 15% chardonnay. A high-toned and distinctly fruity nose that is at once elegant, pure and refined leads to extremely effervescent flavors that border on the foamy, all trimmed in a delicately yeasty finish that is superbly long. This is a complete wine and while there are certainly more powerful rosés around, few offer the balance and délicatesse that this one does.

Founded in 1942 in the heart of the Montagne de Reims, J.Lassalle is not only a family business, it is a family business owned and run by three generations of females and the impression you get from their vineyard, winery and finished product is a sense of organisation, harmony and flair. The House produces 100,000 bottles anually from its 11 hectares of vineyard planted to the three Champagne varieties, Pinot Noir, Pinot Meunier and Chardonnay. They fashion their five cuvee’s from five years of reserve wine delivering flavoresome yet elegant wines.
A very traditional house that makes really impressive wines ….. I was as wowed as always by what I found here. Burghound
