CHAMPAGNE J. LASSALLE SPECIAL CLUB 2013
Lassalle’s Champagnes tell a family story that can be traced back to founder Jules Lassalle, grandfather of current winemaker Angéline Templier. The common thread through the generations is the elegance and finesse that characterize each bottling—a result of meticulous work in the vines and cellar.
The Spécial Club represents an elite association of growers who abide by such strict standards of quality, and the pedigree is evident with this 2013 release. It is a cellar selection of the estate’s best Chardonnay and Pinot Noir—a lively, gloriously textured Champagne exuding the class and refinement consistent with generations of family tradition. —Anthony Lynch
