Pop the Champagne – J. Lassalle “Cachet d’Or” Premier Cru Brut Champagne

Life is too short to not celebrate the little things!  However, when most bottles of Champagne come with hefty price tags, it’s often hard to justify popping a bottle.  Thankfully, Brandon and I took on the tough job of sipping Champagne priced under $40 and I think we have found a winner; J. Lassalle “Cachet d’Or” Premier Cru Brut.  Imported by Kermit Lynch, the Cachet d’Or is a blend of equal parts Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, and Pinot Meunier aged for 36 months on the lees before disgorgement.

Cachet d’Or has a lovely, creamy texture that romances your palate as you sip the wine.  Harmonious flavors of lemon curd, toast, and green apple are surrounded by minerality and followed with a dry, crisp finish.  It’s definitely sophisticated yet very approachable with an incredible showing of vibrance and complexity for $35.  Grab a bottle, a few friends, and celebrate!
