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

Champagne, Chardonnay, France, Pinot Noir

Yes, yes, yes, yes! What a great Champagne. I was serving seared scallops and squid tonight with a light lemon sauce, and I wanted to serve a fizzy with it that could stand up to the shellfish as well as the smokiness from the grill…mission accomplished. This is a fantastic food Champagne that brings out the subtle shellfish flavors while accentuating the smoke character of the food. Racy acidity helped cut through the food and served as a great accompaniment as well as a great palate cleanser in between bites. Highly recommended.

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.
