Lallier Vin Clair Tasting Oger, Champagne

by Paige Donner

March 7th was a day clearly marked on my calendar. I was invited to participate in my first-ever "Vin Clair" or still wine tasting for champagne. In Champagne this is monumental because these are the newly vinified wines that are used in the blendings, the "assemblages," for the year's batch of champagnes, both Vintage, if the year merits it such as 2012 (by most everyone's estimation), and the Brut NV, or basic champagne...
