Fabien has selected two very special wines for this review by TEMPLE:
Lallier, Blanc de Blancs, Brut, Aÿ, France
The Lallier House was founded around 1906 in Aÿ, a famous French village that has been classified as a Grand Cru since 1936. Champagne Lallier is a small family concern crafting Pinot Noir blends from their own (and some specially selected other) ‘Grand Cru’ vineyards. Ay is also home to Bollinger, Avize, and Cramant but Lallier’s cellars are the oldest. Classified as 100 out of 100; ‘Grand Cru’ vineyards are the crème de la crème worldwide.
2010 Château le Puy, Barthélemy, Franc Côtes de Bordeaux, France
Château Le Puy is a remarkable property that has been in the Amoreau family since 1610. The vineyards are on the same limestone plateau as neighboring regions Saint-Emilion and Pomerol. A wine of more limited production (approximately 15,000 bottles per year), this cuvée, 85% Merlot plus 15% Cabernet Sauvignon, is sourced from a single vineyard site known as Les Rocs on a plateau with a deep limestone bedrock. The wine spends 24 months in 228-litre barrels with no addition of SO2 at any stage of the elevage.
