Champagne Lombard is a small family owned operation located in Epernay, just north of the prestigious Cotes des Blancs. It was founded in 1925 by Robert Andrieu, a farmer coming from Southwest France. His son-in-law, Philippe Lombard, took over the family estate in the 1960’s. Today, Thierry Lombard is at the head of the estate. The Lombard family owns 10 hectares of vineyards located in the Montagne de Reims, in the Vallée de l’Ardre and in the Cote des Bars. All of the vineyards are farmed sustainably, while others are in organic conversion. The family also sources grapes from the best terroirs of Champagne among the prestigious Grand Crus of “Mesnil-sur-Oger”, “Avize”, “Cramant”, “Chouilly”, in the Cote des Blancs, “Verzenay” and “Ambonnay” in the Montagne de Reims. The “Caves” of Lombard stretch across 1.5 miles of adjoining streets , and two stories high, carved out of the chalk.
Specialized in Premiers and Grands crus, the Lombard family focuses on expressing the identity of each Terroir with very low to no dosage. The grapes specific to this Cuvee come from the villages classified in the Premier crus of Grauves and Vertus, as well as the Grand Crus of Bouzy and Verzenay. They have been selected for quality and character.
Champagne Lombard use “selection parcellaire” by isolating every vineyard during the fermentation and aging process in order to preserve the singularity and quintessence of each terroir. This Champagne Brut Rose Premier Cru is a blend of 40% Pinot Noir (from Bouzy and Verzenay) and 50% Chardonnay (Cuis, Grauves and Vertus from Cotes des Blancs) classified Premier Cru, including 10% Pinot Noir vinified in red coming from the Grand Cru Verzenay in the Montagne de Reims. The disgorgement date is displayed on the back label.
