Incredibly delicate color. Just the faintest present of red fruit on the nose. Quite weighty in the palette. — 3 months ago

This was real funky. Not overly toasty, not overly sharp, not overly yeasty. Super well balanced and layers of complexity. Really nice. — 3 months ago
On the nose, almost gummy style fruits. Strawberries, cherries, hint of very ripe cooked rhubarb, tangerine, some white citrus, sea spray, nice soft chalkiness & red & pink roses.
The palate reveals; some sweet & sour cherries & strawberry notes, very ripe rhubarb, tangerine, blood orange, passion fruit, lean watermelon, saline, nice grainy grey volcanic minerals that leave a long deep presence on your palate that could be mistaken for spice on the long set, sea shells, beautiful chalkiness, red florals and pink roses, nice round acidity and a long rich, polished finished.

J. Lassalle never disappoints and brings incredible value. The nose (after the ultra zippy bubbles have mellowed a bit) is ripe with green apple skin, lime, marzipan and doughy goodness. Although it may start ice cold, a couple of minutes to warm in the glass let’s it shine even greater. Lemon and lime come first, especially when it’s at it coldest, but gives way to soft crush coral, baked apple, underripe nectarine and a kiss of salinity. This 1er cru checks in at a lower price point than Vueve, so go find some. — 3 months ago
