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

SKU #1041808 92 points Wine Spectator

 There's an open-knit, almost airy feel to this vibrant Champagne, which carries a concentrated range of juicy pear and black raspberry fruit, with hints of crystallized honey. Shows gingersnap biscuit and verbena flavors on the chalky texture, gaining momentum on the racy, zesty finish. (AN)  (10/2015)

90 points Vinous

 Light gold. Ripe pear, honey and tangerine on the fragrant nose and in the mouth. Fleshy, broad and rather powerful, with a touch of bitter quinine adding a dry edge. Closes smooth and subtly spicy, with good cling and a lingering note of sweet butter. (JR)  (1/2015)

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. (AG)  (11/2011)

What a lively, historic Premier Cru grower-producer Champagne! A classic blend of Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, and Meunier, the J. Lassalle "Cachet Or" is still made using a traditional wooden press, and aged three years on the lees! A lot of work goes into this tiny production (farmed from just 16 hectares on clay and limestone soil in Chigny-Les-Roses), which features three generations of women at the helm. This release sings with tangerine and orchard fruit, tempered by a slightly herbaceous, almost camphor, nose and a chalky finish. There is subtle toastiness from the lees, but mostly this is easygoing, bright Champagne – my notes literally read “crushable.” I can’t wait to enjoy a bottle al fresco as summer heat gives way to fall.
