N.V. Jean Lallement Champagne Brut Grand Cru (France, Champagne)

Champagne, Chardonnay, France, Pinot Noir

Excellent bottle of Champagne. Medium fine mousse and bead and a great texture that’s creamy and racy at the same time. Unmistakably, I could taste hazelnut flavors and none of the citrus and apple peel flavors I usually look for in my BdBs. Regardless, stunner bottle. Also…I don’t know what the dosage on this is, but I’d guess it’s fairly high. The wine has a sweet fruit edge to it and the texture seems less racy tan most Champagnes I drink. Amazingly, in this Champagne, it worked great for me.

I am not a professional wine taster, nor do I have any professional training in the wine trade. I am a wine enthusiast who has spent countless hours tasting wines of many different styles. My palate is not aligned with a single wine critic, and I call all wines "as I taste them". My site is a source of tasting notes and wine recommendations as well as warnings without conflict of interest. You'll just have to figure out how your palate aligns with mine. My palate generally tends to veer towards Old-World wines that put a premium on terroir and lovely balance and finesse, rather than raw power...please keep that in mind as you read my notes.

  1. Just a comment about the dosage in this wine. It is in fact very low. I don’t know the exacts but I think it’s likely somewhere around 4g. The sweetness in the fruit simply comes from the exceptional handling in the vinification process, coupled with the distinctive terroir that is Verzanay/Verzy.-LeS


  2. Leif Erik.Thanks for the comment. Interesting to hear that this has very low dosage. I would have never guessed. Great thing about wine is that there’s always something new to learn.
