WHAT THE CRITICS ARE SAYING
“Only the very greatest wines are able to communicate the subtleties not only of the place that has given them birth but the very personalities of those who have brought them to life. When I first tasted the enchanting champagnes of J. Lassalle, I knew nothing of the estate or of the three generations of women behind it. Yes, women, and this is the key. There is a tender woman’s touch here and my notes flow with superlatives of ‘delicate’, ‘restrained’, ‘sophisticated’, ‘gorgeous’, even ‘a rosé for fairies and princesses and anyone who prizes dainty, delicate beauty.’ These are impeccably crafted cuvées of generous fruit presence, purity and perfectly judged balance.” Tyson Stelzer, The Champagne Guide 2012-2013.
“And from the lovely village of Chigny-les-Roses (yes, lots of roses there), Champagne J. Lassalle’s current releases are very impressive. Their non-vintage Cuvée Préférence is a mature beauty, expressive, generous, stylish, and the palate is remarkably elegant. If you are used to the big Champagne houses, the extra pleasures offered by this cuvée will shock you. It is a caress going down! Lassalle’s Champagne Rosé is very pale in color with strawberry and raspberry perfume in the subtle bouquet. No, it doesn’t shout, and red wine was not added to color it. It grows on you – a connoisseur’s rosé, and it is bone dry!” Kermit Lynch
“A very traditional house that makes really impressive wines ….. I was as wowed as always by what I found here.” Burghound
“One of my favorite Champagne producers, J. Lassalle.” The Wine Advocate Robert Parker
