Since 1906, LALLIER is a manufacture of prestigious crus de Champagne. The “Série R” is the result of a deep reflection upon one year’s harvest. A large majority of the cuvee R.015 comes from the 2015 vintage (39% chardonnay, 61% pinot noir). This champagne matches perfectly with the art of drinking and eating well.

All about 2015 harvest R.015 is the reflection of a radiant year ! The vegetative cycle unfolded peacefully despite a few surprises. A classical winter without frost or pest pressure except for oïdium which was controlled ! As early as mid-May, a very hot and dry climate settled in right through to August (like in 2003, 1976 and 1951). This exceptional event was accentuated by significant daily temperature variations (coolness at night, intense heat at midday). Bud break took place mid-April and full bloom happened mid-June. But the great dryness brought concern at the start of the ripening period (7th August). The water deficiency level was a reminder of the years 1998, 1976, 1964, 1962 and 1959 with grapes showing symptoms of dryness ! It was unhoped-for, but finally downfalls of rain hit the vineyard for 2 weeks around 15th August. At last, the grape berries began to swell and Botrytis cinerea was ousted by the drop in temperatures. Everything fell back into place and the harvest began happily on the second week of September with perfect sanitary conditions. The year of all superlatives, worthy of a great vintage, with a promise of an extraordinary quality !
