"The mother-daughter team of Chantal Decelle-Lassalle and Angeline Templier carries on a tradition of vinous generosity and refinement begun by Chantal’s father Jules Lassalle when he founded his establishment in 1942, and on display stateside since 1970 and Kermit Lynch’s embryonic years as merchant (pre-Wine Route “Adventures”), an era when very few small family houses – much less grower-bottlers – were known beyond narrow French circles. Full malo-lactic conversion and three or more year stays on the lees are the Lassalle norm."

- Wine Advocate, David Schildknecht

Wine Spectator

Lightly chalky in texture, with racy acidity imparting a mouthwatering quality to the tightly knit flavors of green pear, apricot, oyster shell, pastry dough, honey and lemon zest.

International Wine Cellar

Bright yellow-gold. Aromas of musky pear skin, quinine, pungent flowers and dusty minerals. Sappy and floral on the palate, offering pliant orchard fruit flavors braced by zesty minerality. Closes with slow-building sweetness and strong punch; ample and rounded yet energetic Champagne, the way I remember this bottling from the early 1990s
