Grapes - 70% Pinot Meunier, 15% Pinot Noir, 15% Chardonnay
Region - Village of Cramant, Cotes du Blanc, Champagne, Central France
What it tastes like - The mouth is round, vinous without heaviness (it retains its full initial lightness), very fruity – the kind of fruit compotes one would like to spread on a thick slice of farmhouse bread were it possible. Very different from most other Champagnes due to the high percentage of Meunier in the blend.
Winemaking - Stainless steel fermentation, 30% blended with reserve wines, organic viticultre, minimal intervention.
Producer - Our vineyard lies in Cramant, in the heart of the Champagne region. The estate covers 8.30 hectares of vines. Our plots are cultivated on the terroirs of both the Côte des Blancs and the Marne Valley.
Our dedication combined with the expertise handed down over the generations and a passion for the land, the vines and the craft of the vigneron give us control and perfect mastery over the cultivation of our vines and the harvesting of our grapes. Our land parcels being spread over a wide area require special care and ensure a great variety of character to our vines, offering a wide palette of aromas and flavours when it comes to blending our cuvées. This great variety enables us to maintain the style of Lancelot-Pienne champagnes.
