Champagne J. Lassalle Préférence Premier Cru Brut NV

Add to wishlist

"The bouquet is softly full with fresh white stonefruits and balanced tight, bready autolysis, lovely layers of detail of red/black fruit. Beautifully elegant, with very fine textures and the palate lifted and freshened by the mousse, and fineness of the acidity. Delicacy of expression, and balanced and subtle autolysis. Very smooth-flowing, and showing finesse and a sense of style." 5 Stars, 18.5/20, Raymond Chan Wine Reviews (NZ)

"Focused on pinot meunier (60 percent), the balance equal parts chardonnay and pinot noir, this is aged four years on the lees; this current release includes the 2010 and ’09 vintages. It has the freshness and clarity of fragrance that runs through all the Lassalle wines, with a brisk mineral direction to its flavors, finishing firm and clean." 92 Points, Wine & Spirits Magazine

"This buoyant Champagne shows an almost ethereal quality, with a fine mousse and vibrant acidity supporting a fragrant range of apple blossom, anise, juicy white cherry and pickled ginger notes. Chalky finish." 91 Points, Wine Spectator Magazine

"The NV Brut Preference 1er Cru offes lovely immediacy in its nuances and soft contours. Its distinctly red-toned fruit add further dimensions of complexity. The creamy, resonant finish is particularly of note." 91 Points, Vinous Media

"The J.Lasalle Preference presents a little more verve, focus and brightness than the Cachet d’Or. Hints of lime, white peach and jasmine are nicely woven together in this pointed, mid-weight offering. “90 Points, Antonio Galloni
