Angeline Lassalle

Champagne J. Lassalle - Champagne, France

Visit:

Jules Lassalle established this family-owned Champagne house in 1942 in the village of Chigny-Les-Roses on the Montagne de Reims. A master of his craft, he established a signature style of elegant, tightly knit wines with a certain ampleur. When he passed away in 1982 his wife, Olga, and their daughter, Chantal, took over the estate, upholding Jules’ high standards and progressively pushing the domaine to the next level. In 2006 Chantal’s daughter, Angeline Templier, joined the estate as winemaker.

The Lassalle’s are one of the rare producers of Champagne who allow their wines to finish malolactic fermentation, just like the great whites from the Cote d’Or, and all cuvees are aged extensively once in bottle. This results in an astonishing complexity and depth from the beginning of their range up to the luxury cuvees.

These tough, hardworking women continue to follow vinification methods established by Jules in the forties. Their 28-year tradition of “une femme, un esprit, un style” (one woman, one spirit, one style) holds true today more than ever.
