Wine Week Day 4! In-Store Tasting with Domaine du Vieux Telegraphe and Champagne J. Lassalle and special guest Daniel Brunier and Angeline Templier
Saturday, October 22nd from 2 to 4 pm
It’s a double feature at Sherry Lehmann! We’re highlighting two of our beloved wine regions in France: Champagne and the Rhone Valley.
The family owned and operated Champagne house of J. Lassalle was established in 1942 by Jules Lassalle. After his death in 1982, his wife, Olga, and their daughter, Chantal Decelle-Lassalle, stepped in and took over the estate, upholding Jules’ high standards and progressively pushing the domaine to the next level. In 2006 Chantal’s daughter, Angeline Templier, joined the estate as winemaker. Their twenty-eight-year tradition of “une femme, un esprit, un style” (one woman, one spirit, one style) holds true today more than ever.
One cannot think of Châteauneuf-du-Pape, the most celebrated cru of the southern Rhone, without thinking of Domaine du Vieux Telegraphe. The Brunier family is legendary in its own right, having been rooted to the enigmatic plateau known as La Crau for over one hundred years. The wines of Vieux Telegraphe evoke the concept of terroir in its purest form: they reflect their dramatic climate, the rough terrain that defines the soil, their full sun exposure at a higher altitude, the typicity of the varietals with an emphasis on Grenache, and of course, the influence of their caretakers, the Brunier family. For many, La Crau is Châteauneuf-du-Pape’s grandest cru.
