About Lallier Série R.018 Brut Champagne
Aÿ-Champagne is a municipality located in northeastern France, the commune being most notable for its production of Champagne. Champagne Lallier was founded in the village of Aÿ in 1906. The grand-cru village is notable for its rich winemaking history that dates back to the Roman era. The house was founded by René Lallier after marrying into a Champenois family. In modern times, René-James Lallier took the brand in a new direction with the help of Francis Tribaut, modernizing the facilities and refurbishing the cellars in the 90s. Since 2020, the house has operated under Campari with Dominique Demarville serving as general manager and cellar master.
Under Demarville's leadership, Lallier continues to thrive as a modern operation, rooted in rich tradition. Building upon centuries of know-how, the house is being steered towards eco-responsibility, producing true terroir Champagne that is embodied in their flagship Série R and cuvée Ouvrage.
Série R represents the quintessential Lallier champagne style. They say it brings the perfect balance of four Lallier signature elements: freshness, purity, depth, and intensity. Made from 56% Pinot Noir and 44% Chardonnay, the majority of the wines in the blend in Lallier Série R.018 Champagne are from 2018, which is characterized by fruity notes and a delicate sweetness. A non-vintage champagne, you’ll get to savor the subtle nuances of each cuvée. Savor before your meal or with raw vegetables, fresh goat cheese, shellfish, or raw fish.

Champagne has been associated with royalties since the 17th century, still maintaining its glorious reputation.
The French take Champagne seriously, so coming from the Champagne region of France isn't the only requirement that keeps this drink from being "just sparkling wine." The rules of the appellation require specific vineyard practices, particular types of grapes, specific pressing methods, and secondary fermentation of wine.
