J. Lassalle "Cachet d'Or" 1er Cru Brut Champagne
Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar
Light, bright gold. Aromas and flavors of pear, anise, candied fig and ginger, with a spicy topnote. Juicy and precise, with strong finishing punch and very good clarity. I like this Champagne's blend of richness and energy.
Sleek and firm, with a refined texture and flavors of black currant, biscuit, honey and licorice riding a lively bead to the lightly chalky finish. Drink now through 2018.
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The NV Brut Premier Cru Cachet d’Or is an attractive entry-level wine laced with peaches, apricots, sweet spices and flowers. It shows excellent depth to match its accessible, up-front personality.
J. Lassalle works with 11 hectares of vineyards in Champagne, all of them of Premier Cru status. This non-vintage brut is grown in Chigny-les-Rose and composed of 60% Meunier, 20% Pinot Noir and 20% Chardonnay.
