The great grand cru vineyards of Champagne – too often blended into grand marques bearing a house style – find their own distinct expression in a superb collection of terroir bottlings of Champagne Lombard.
Each of the Lombard grand cru vineyards produces champagne of great distinction, yet here you can taste the singularity of soil and vine, of how the subtle variety of these chalky terrains imparts its own bracing minerality to the lean elegance of chardonnay and the austere ripeness of pinot noir. All of the four grand crus are brut nature, which means they have no dosage of sugar to affect the sweetness. The enotri community thus has the rare opportunity to taste these vineyards side by side, with the champagne being the carrying medium for each distinctive terrain.
Family owned venture founded in 1925, the Lombard house under the present leadership of Thierry Lombard embraces sustainable and organic farming in its 10 hectares of estate vineyards, and sources its grand crus from single parcels in the greatest grand cru terroirs of Champagne.
