This is the famous Champagne house of Lancelot-Pienne. Find all the best references of this prestigious Champagne estate on Comptoir des Millésimes. This is one of our partner estates, which means that their wines are shipped directly to our cellar following their bottling at their estate. The winemakers reserve an allocation of their cases of wine for us each year. Do not hesitate to create an email alert (in the section my Alerts) on the Lancelot-Pienne house in order to be informed first of the latest arrivals.
Presentation of the estate
The cuvées d'assemblage are elaborated with the aim of obtaining champagnes that are not standard. They are not characterised by the vintage effect brought by each harvest. Each year, they offer different characteristics while preserving the style of the Lancelot-Pienne house: fruity, round, balanced wines, with light flavours, without too much structure.
The art of blending is based on three criteria:
- The number of parcels: chosen according to their age, exposure, soil and terroir.
- The grape varieties and their particularities: the marriage of the three Champagne grape varieties grown on the clay-limestone and sandy soils of the Marne valley and the southern slopes of Epernay, with a predominantly East-West exposure.
- Reserve wines: wines matured and kept in vats according to a system called "Solera". This mixture of young and older wines (up to ten years old), blended and rejuvenated each year by the harvest wine, brings the substance and complexity giving its touch, its style, to the Lancelot-Pienne house.
