“It’s hard to understate how compellingly complex and alluring as well as what an amazing value this is… Black tea and buckwheat smokiness share aromatic attention with intimations of the fresh apple and crabapple, orange and pineapple that go on to inform a lusciously juicy palate infused with black tea and suffused with crushed stone. The mouthwatering saline-sweet savor of scallops that emerges mid-palate, so typically for this address, is here apple wood-smoked. To the aforementioned sense of hidden sweetness (not at all on account of residual sugar, as there are but four grams) is joined, in a profoundly protracted finish, by almond-like nuttiness; maritime alkalinity and salinity; and kisses of candied orange rind and caramelized onion. If this wine doesn’t set your salivary glands pumping, you might want to consult your doctor…” 95 Points, David Schildknecht, The Wine Advocate 11/13
There’s nothing more satisfying than discovering a Champagne that not only garners great reviews (95 points from The Wine Advocate) and is an incredible value, but also tastes GREAT. We’ve found just that in the very small production Jean Lallement Brut Reserve NV, which we’re excited to offer to you today at $62.99 – 10% off the release price of $70.
The tiny estate is comprised of twenty different parcels in four hectares, split between the grand cru villages of Verzenay and Verzy in the Montagne de Reims. The vines are on average twenty-six years old, and tended to by young winemaker, Alex Lallement, who is furthering the quality of the wines year after year. Lallement’s Champagnes are clean, rich, original, and complex, and in Zachys’ opinion, one of the greatest values from the region. Production and, therefore, availability, is extremely limited; the estate’s total production is slightly less than 2,000 cases per year, and the Brut Reserve is about a quarter of that, so this is a true Champagne rarity not to be missed!
All My Best,
