    Product description

    In the 1970s, Kermit was the first to begin importing artisanal, grower Champagne, and the Lassalles have been in the KLWM portfolio longer than anyone. Champagne J. Lassalle works with all three varietals authorized in the region (Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, and Pinot Meunier) on sixteen hectares of vineyards, all of them premier cru. These tough, hardworking women continue to follow the vinification methods established by Jules in the forties: they use the same wooden basket press he installed in the winery over fifty years ago, pressing and vinifying the individual plots separately.

    This Cuvée Angeline - 60% Pinot Noir, 40% Chardonnay - is only made in the best of years.   It is aged a minimum of 7 years on the lees before disgorgement and has 8 g/L of dosage. It’s a beautiful, tight-knit expression of the clay/limestone terroir, with a delicate mousse that caresses your palate.  Asian pear, almond, lemon pith, minerally chalk and saline weave throughout.   

    Pair this with a decadent lobster mac & cheese, fish with buttery sauces, foie gras, gourmet potato chips, and believe it or not, a nice steak!
