Champagne Lombard

France

Founded and located in Epernay in 1925, Champagne Lombard under the leadership of three generations of the Lombard family has undergone a metamorphosis from typical négociant to a modern thinking champagne house with a grower’s and terroir-based philosophy. To the family and their Vineyard and Cellar Director Laurent Vaillant, the four factors that define terroir are soil, topography, climate, and viticulture. Within their range of Brut Nature and Extra Brut champagnes, Thomas Lombard and the team led by Chef de Caves Laurent highlight the diversity of terroir expression thanks to single-village and single-plot cuvées. Their champagnes reveal the mineral characteristics their respective terroir.

In addition to their own house vineyards, the Lombards work closely with a group of growers with a total vineyard area of 65 ha. This approach ensures a consistent quality year after year.

Champagne Lombard Premier Cru Blanc de Noirs Extra Brut · Profile

Made with 100% Pinot Noir grapes this elegant champagne is a great gastronomic sparkling wine with a deep, well-balanced structure. The bouquet is really lovely, wafting from the glass in a blend of white peach, apple blossoms, a touch of vanilla, and dry chalkiness. Bright well-integrated acidity and very good length and grip on the mineral-driven finish.

As a Champagne sans-dosage, you can appreciate the highlighted chalkiness exhibited on the palate.
