Maison de Champagne Jean Lallement | Verzenay, France

By Dirk Smits

The name Lallement can be traced back in archives of the village of Verzenay to 1694. Back then, vine growers cultivated their vineyards and sold the grapes to négociants. After the fall of grape prices in 1929 and the resulting revolt, Jean Lallement decided to make his own Champagne.

His first bottles were sold in the early ’30s. His son Jean-Charles joined in the early ’60s and eventually took over the winery. Since 1999, Jean-Luc Lallement perpetuates the family know-how and has developed a strong following for his wines outside of France.
