Fût de chêne - Premier Cru
CHAMPAGNE PASCAL LALLEMENT
This exceptional cuvée, vinified in oak barrels, is a blend that consists of 20% Chardonnay, 40% Meunier and 40 % Pinot Noir, from the 2016, 2017 and 2018 harvests. As soon as the press was out, the juices were selected during a tasting process for a quick drum setting. The wine was vinified and aged in oak barrels for 8 months. Before bottling, a second confirmation tasting took place. It ages at least 3 years in our cellars.
The complex nose has aromas of caramel and vanilla. There are floral aromas and small red berries. The palate is powerful, balanced and fresh, thanks to the Pinot Noir present in the blend. The finish is long, we find the aromas of oak barrels. The balance of the blend between these two grape varieties, Chardonnay and Pinot Noir, brings a balance by the freshness of the citrus fruit, also by the sweetness of the red fruits.
