J. Lassalle "Cachet d'Or" 1er Cru Brut Champagne

SKU #1041808 90 points 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.  (12/ 2012)

90 points Wine Spectator

 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.  (10/ 2013)

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.  (11/ 2011)

Country:

France

- When it comes to wine, France stands alone. No other country can beat it in terms of quality and diversity. And while many of its Region, Bordeaux, Burgundy and Champagne most obviously, produce wine as rare, as sought-after and nearly as expensive as gold, there are just as many obscurities and values to be had from little known appellations throughout the country. To learn everything there is to know about French wine would take a lifetime. To understand and appreciate French wine, one only has to begin tasting them.

Sub-Region:

Champagne

- The French region of Champagne (comprised of the towns of Rheims, Epernay, and Ay) was the first region in the world to make sparkling wine in any quantity. Today, the name of the region is synonymous with the finest of all sparkling wines, and winemaking traditions of Champagne have become role models for sparkling wine producers, worldwide. Surprisingly, the region of Champagne is now responsible for only one bottle in 12 of all sparkling wine produced. Styles of champagne range from the basic brut (often blends of several vintages), single vintage champagnes, and rose. View our bestselling Champagne.
