TN: 2012 Lassalle Special Club premier cru

#1 Post by alan weinberg »

96 Cuvée Angeline made me fall in love with Lassalle. Popped a 2012 Special Club a decade early. Lovely wine full of finesse and sweet fruit. Midpalate is rich, long finish, very elegant and stately wine. Not many adjectives regarding the fruit but it’s super. All the elements bode for a longer and graceful evolution. Love this house. Need to learn more.

Alan, I'm always surprised that Lassalle doesn't get more attention from wine geeks. I have enjoyed every wine I've had from them and just recently finished my last '07 Angeline, which was delicious and still a little on the young side. It was just a quick KL trip visit there, but they seemed like really nice women, too. Here's three generations:

Had my first Lassalle this fall, the NV rose which I thought was terrific stuff. At ~$55, a little higher than I normally pay for a NV, but well worth the price. Thanks for the note on the special club.

Hard to find the Angeline anymore, but was always a favorite. Will have to try the Special Club.
