Jean Lallement Brut Champagne

SKU #1059843 92 points Allen Meadows - Burghound

Outer quote mark A gorgeously complex and elegant nose that is classy and restrained yet not shy with notes of brioche, lemon rind and rose petal aromas that introduce fresh, racy, detailed and moderately effervescent flavors that carry as much depth as the nose hints at, all wrapped in a sappy and lingering finish. The bead is not especially fine but the character and overall harmony is impressive. Lovely stuff. Inner quote mark (10/2009)

92 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark There's a sense of poise to this rich, spiced Champagne. Finely detailed texture and acidity mix with ripe flavors of quince paste, candied orange peel, brioche and cream, while notes of ground ginger, cardamom, clove and white pepper ride through and linger on the finish. Disgorged June 2010. Drink now through 2020. Inner quote mark (11/2011)

91 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark The NV Brut is a very pretty wine graced with considerable nuance and complexity. Sweet red fruits, mint, flowers and herbs are some of the notes that come together in this articulate Champagne. Lallement’s NV Brut shows lovely balance and class from start to finish. Floral notes are nicely layered into the energetic close. The NV Brut is 80% Pinot Noir and 20% Chardonnay, 80% 2008, 20% 2007 vintages. There is quite a bit of 2008 vintage character here. Dosage is 6 grams per liter. Disgorged May 2011. Anticipated maturity: 2011-2014. Inner quote mark (11/2011)

90 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

Outer quote mark (80% pinot noir and 20% chardonnay; disgorged May, 2011): Pale yellow. Expansive, fragrant bouquet of tropical fruits, spicecake and honeysuckle. Lush, creamy and gently smoky, with lively tropical and orchard fruit flavors and late notes of dusty minerals and citrus zest. The floral note repeats on the finish, which clings with very good authority. Inner quote mark (12/2011)

Vinous

Outer quote mark The NV Brut Grand Cru is a very pretty wine from Lallement. Soft contours take some of the edge off the Verzy cut in this attractive, focused Champagne. Hints of dried pear, mint and spice add layers of complexity. The freshness and briskness of Verzy comes through nicely. The Brut is a blend of 80% 2013 and 20% 2012 in the customary blend of 80% Pinot Noir and 20% Chardonnay. Disgorged: September 2016. Dosage is 6 grams per liter. (AG) Inner quote mark (12/2017)

K&L Notes

This is a blend of 80% Pinot Noir and 20% Chardonnay from an incredibly small estate (only four hectares!) split between the crus of Verzenay and Verzy in the Motagne de Reims. Distinctive, nutty, citrusy and floral, layered and racy. Excellent bubbles.
