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.
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.
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.
