Located just outside Reims, Lassalle is run by three generations of women, with 50% of the tiny 100,000-bottle production heading to the US. Lassalle led the way, the first of the Growers to really make waves in that market. Production is very traditional, with stainless steel, no oak, malolactic and 8-9gm dosage. They have 11ha, all Premier Cru, in Chigny-les-Roses, divided into 45 different parcels (50% Pinot Meunier, 25% Chardonnay and 25% Pinot Noir). The vineyards were planted by Angéline Templier's late grandfather, with the company officially becoming a partnership between grandmother, mother and daughter in 2006.
