Works well as an aperitif or with dishes such as veal in truffles with potato purée or duck in orange sauce. The Cuvée R. Lalou is served at a temperature of 10°C to 12°C, for tasting between 12°C and 14°C. Among the twelve possible lieux-dits reserved for the Cuvée R. Lalou, Didier Mariotti decided to use six, chosen to enhance and balance the Pinot Noirs that drive the House style. These parcels include Les Hannepés, Les Crupots, Les Rochelles and Les Houles, situated in the terroirs of Ambonnay, Verzy and Verzenay – and comprising 53% of the cuvée. They are enhanced by the finesse and elegance of the Chardonnays (47%) from Les Bionnes, Les Briquettes and La Croix de Cramant, situated in the terroirs of Avize and Cramant. A light liqueur d’expédition of 6g/l and lees ageing of ten years has helped to create a wine that is both balanced and harmonious.
