Les Sous Grand Cru
Parcellaire d’Aÿ
100% Pinot Noir

Presentation

LES SOUS, a plot on the heights of our village of Aÿ, feeds on sloping hillsides where you can admire chalk soil cuts. Its high altitude at the edge of the woods, combined with the cool evenings ensures a slow but sure maturity. Established on 1.85 Ha, it is planted exclusively with Pinot Noir, the main grape variety and typical of the Montagne de Reims. This cuvée is based on the desire to associate a real freshness with the richness of the pinot noir from the terroir of Aÿ. The practice of a respectful viticulture and the working of the soil according to the methods of our ancestors, are essential to create a single vineyard cuvée with as much identity as possible such as LES SOUS. This plot produces fresh, elegant wines without excess vinosity. The single vineyards from our LALLIER Domain call for an awakening of the senses with the discovery of the Grands Crus of Aÿ-Champagne.

Tasting

Color : the golden-yellow effervescence, a nod to the Diamond Champagne.

Flavors : Aromas of brioche and apricot evolving towards stewed notes.

Taste : A structured and rich Champagne wine at the same time. It offers a beautiful substance on the palate where its vinosity balances the freshness. Its notes of fresh bread will evolve towards panettone and dried fruit flavours.

LES SOUS sublime rather salty dishes turned towards the respect of the soil. Following the famous adage “The best things in life are the simplest”, Francis TRIBAUT suggests that you pair this wine with a rabbit terrine with prunes or a pan-fried mushroom. Les SOUS , is the discovery of the Pinot Noir Grand Cru from the Terroir of Aÿ-Champagne.
