The Premier Cru "Tradition" is a Brut Champagne from Lallement Massonnot, a historic Maison in the Montagne de Reims region, cultivating vineyards in these lands for over a century. After selling grapes to the Courmas cooperative for many decades, the family started producing Champagne under their own label in 1981. The estate spans 5 hectares and is divided into numerous plots, mostly classified as Premier Cru. The vineyards are located in Coulommes-la-Montagne, Pargny-lès-Reims, Saint-Euphrasie, and Gueux municipalities. Harvesting is done manually, and the grapes are pressed and vinified separately by grape variety and plot. After a few months of ageing, the final blend is created. The second fermentation takes place in the bottle according to the Champenoise Method, with a minimum of 36 months of ageing on the lees.
